The room is rather small for the 3 of us. However, location is ok and staffs are friendly


amazing place right on the lake. I would recommend this place to anyone going to the lake district. staff are very knowledgeable about hikes in the area.


This is a really excellent hostel. The staff and facilities were great, and they have a generous amount of parking. They are located just a short walk away from Ambleside's shops and restaurants. I would not hesitate to stay here again the next time I am in Cumbria.
