Thought this hostel was great! It's obviously odd that there are no staff, but the hostel is so small that you don't really need anyone there, and the manager was good at responding to my texts quickly (would be great if he had a number to text around the hostel, rather than having to call his number to be directed to his mobile number). Met some really great people, and it's easily the best located hostel in windermere!


Very nice hostel, very clean and comfortable. The place is traveler rather than staff run, but works well and there is always staff to call if you have any problems
