    The hostel is very central. The private bedroom is small but comfortable and the two bathrooms are clean. The kitchen has all necessary appliances. I was sorry there were no recycling facilities. The living room is very roomy. I have given the staff a 4, only because the hostel is largely unmanned and we never interacted with any staff, but this did not impact our visit and I would definitely stay again when re-visiting the Lake District.

    There is a hair dryer in the room! Every room has its own basin. There is no staff in the hostel but everything is perfect.

    didn't realise dorm was mixed. So a man came into the room, but he left after a minute. I won't go back if I can't have female only dorm. Also all rooms have 1 2 3 code to get into room.. So this man could come into the room I didn't like this. He was very rude to me for no reason.

    The hostel itself was great—perfect location near the train and bus station, super clean, great facility in general. Contact with staff in advance was very helpful and the entire stay went smoothly. As I was the only one there as far as I knew the atmosphere was rather ghostly. The hostel was also unstaffed, which was strange, and they request you pay in cash by placing exact change in a letter that you then deposit in a secure lockbox in the common room. It's an odd system but it worked for me.

    Things to note - 2 iron-mesh-cage type lockers are available under bed. Normal lockers are available in common room but you are charged (50p or 1Pound based on size) per use. Didn't try their breakfast personally. Location wise quite good. Keep some cash on you if you're going to this hostel.

    Clean and comfortable, not really any staff around or much atmosphere. But an easy base in the lake district and had some nice chats in the kitchen
