Had a large group of students making a lot of noise until 2am one night which the staff didn't deal with which was frustrating

really, really nice place - amazing value for money! Would definitely return. Friendly staff, really beautiful location and convenient for walking and eating out. Good atmosphere with large social area that we spent a lot of time in. Rooms were basic but nice and really good for the price.

Brilliant location and very friendly helpful staff. Finding out information before the visit was very easy by email and by phone. I went with my two sons without a car and it was very accessible..we had a great day travelling to different places by bus (back of yha) and boat (front of yha). The only downfall was a group of very noisy french students who kept us awake. The hostel was very clean (great selfcatering kitchen) could do with oiling the shared area doors so they are not quite so noisy!

We loved our stay at Ambleside. A beautiful location by Lake Windermere and perfect for our few days over NYE. We did a mountain biking trip and the hostel provided a locked bike shed to store bikes which was great. The bar was a great place to chill out in the evening and although we self-catered the restaurant and breakfast provided look good and reasonably priced. The NYE buffet appeared overpriced however and with no other entertainment, we ventured to Ambleside itself for some live music.

We loved our stay! Great location, great staff, clean and spacious, all facilities.. An ideal way of getting away for the weekend with friends without breaking the piggy bank on accommodation. We'll be coming back!!

It's in the best location that you can enjoy the lake district, especially Ambleside lake. Right in front of the hostel there's lake Ambleside and the bus stop you can move to other sides of lake district including Keswick and Windermere. Not only the location the hostel itself is great. Clean room and cozy atmosphere. Breakfast, which is not included to the price, is very delicious and staffs are kind and always willing to help you. Thanks to this hostel I could truly enjoy the lake district
