The Hostel was good looking, the staff friendly, the bathrooms clean, but the water was running cold in the morning... the kitchen was fully equipped and you could also buy breakfast, dinner & lunch packs for a reasonable price. There's a bus stopping at the Hostel, but the area is just much more accessible by car! There was a serious lack in security as the room didn't have key/card access but anyone could come into the hostel and rooms as they pleased. Would go there again though^^

Lovely staff welcomed me even though it was late and I was the last to check in for the night. She explained where evening was, the facilities and what the hostel could help me with during my stay in the lake district. Gorgeous view of Derwent Water from my room too!
