Good location, close to trains and the village centre. Security code for both front door and rooms needs to be changed regularly- no point having them otherwise. Definitely needs more toilets/showers. Wifi was decent. Fridge was leaking while I was there, not sure what was wrong with it

Good location near center of Windermere. Short walk from train station. Self check-in was easy and straightforward, though I booked a 4-bed dorm and was allocated the 6-bed dorm. Good kitchen/lounge area. Laundry use was cheap. Lots of information available on Windermere and surrounds. There are only 2 bathrooms for 22+ people though. Great place to meet other travellers and the wifi was decent. I would however recommend door security codes be updated more regularly.

Excellent place to stay, great social atmosphere. No staff on site, all services are self-service including check in, it's based on honesty. Pretty unique system. Decent kitchen.

Great location, 5 min walk to train station, pubs, restaurants etc. No parking at the hostel so had to park about a 10 minute walk away (free street parking). Spoke to the hostel manager on the phone twice and he was great. Only downside the room was small so not much floor space for packing / leaving your bags. Also as it was so close to the station people were coming and going very late / very early.

Only two bathrooms for the entire hostel was challenging - sometimes neither my son nor I could get in for an hour or so. The self check in is fine, but I do wish the cleanliness had been a bit better (no clean dish towels, no towels to rent, dirty floors). That said, the location is great. If you are driving, keep in mind there is only one parking space. Cooperative food is close by for groceries and the kitchen is fine, though the oven does not work (the ranges do).

No Staff on site but we had no issues getting in and paying. Wifi was great. Showers and toilets were a bit of a problem just because there are only 2 for more than 10 ppl. Definitely advise to bring your own towel. One perk was having a hair dryer in the room!

The location is central to the most amazing scenery. There are buses to get around & pleny if opportunities for hiking adventures. The check in system with out person was odd, but it worked. The hostel was clean, the bed was comfortable & the guests were friendly. I highly recommend staying at the Lake District Backpackers Hostel if you're traveling to Windermere on a budget. The Lakes District has spectacular scenery, it is a must see destination😍

The honesty system here is very strange and having no staff at all is plain frustrating. Countless times people were struggling to work out which rooms they were in and other travellers would help and brief them about the hostel. Its a nice location and quite homely. It's just awkward when a French man starts making a scene cause somebody took his bed by accident. Eh, good luck if you book here, your going to need some.
