Outstanding in all respects Thank you from St Austin's C2C cycle group . Nothing was too much trouble even checking over our bikes before we embarked on the challenging second day . A fabulous hostel in all respects .

Our family voted this our favorite hostel over the course of a three-week trip staying in IYHA hostels, independent hostels, and hotels. We ended up in Penrith more or less by accident and were delighted to find such a great place to stay - our only regret was that we were there for only one night!
