Inflexible: breakfast, if you do not book the night for fry up forget it, told off for smoking in grounds, information about BBQ wrong, told we had to book the night before on the day so not allowed to join in

Great facilities, recently renovated. Staff were very helpful with advice on hiking in the area. Delicious home cooked meals. Great location for activities in the Lake District. Would definitely recommmend if in the area.


Very nice hostel. If your looking for a nice clean cheap place just to Stay. It its a bit of a wall to the grasmere town. About a good 10/15min walk.


Lovely little hostel in the outskirts of Grasmere. Great homemade food available, made by the hosts themselves. Friendly relaxed atmosphere, I'll definitely be back :)
