What can I say, a really nice place to stay, I found nothing missing... Really liked the fact that I could keep my backpack at the reception after checking out, that was really handy.


Wifi is not free unless you're a member. Location in Grasmere was awesome. Beautiful hostel, definitely easy to get to and get around without a car so backpackers (like we are) will be fine! Facilities were good. Clean hostel. Definitely a family orientated atmosphere so don't expect to meet people if you're younger or travelling alone. The beautiful town and walks are worth it though!!


Having never stayed in a yha before i was pleasantly surprised at the overall experience of my stay....staff where friendly and informative, accommodation clean and tidy...location was excellent and i would definitely rate this accommodation to anyone that wants a budget place to stay, i for one would go back to yha grasmere without a shadow of a doubt.

Had a nice stay! Will definitely come back in summer!


My boyfriend and I were there for Christmas and we had a lovely time! The location is beautiful, the hostel is cosy and very clean and the staff is friendly. Also, we had a very nice Christmas dinner in the hostel!! I will always have good memories of this Christmas! Thanks!! :)
