    This hostel was great in almost every way. Beautiful building with lots of space (not so much in the 12 bed dorm but that's to be expected) and facilities. Very clean. I had a large well equipped kitchen. It's far away from anything, being in the Peak District. The only difficult thing was getting there without a car, I managed to find a shuttle which ran Monday to Friday from the Ashbourne Bus Station (just a bus stop) to Ilam hall for 2 pounds. Be aware there is no cell phone reception there.
