    Great place to stay! Right on the water, the staff were really helpful, large kitchen to cook your own meals and clean bathrooms and toilets. I would definitely come back! We were driving so the free parking on the hostels property was also a bonus!

    We only stayed one night at YHA Ambleside but we were very impressed. The location is amazing, with good facilities and very helpful and friendly staff. Our only slight complaint is that we thought that the bike shed security could do with improvement. A lot of cyclist stay at YHA Ambleside and because of the value of bikes these days and the fact that the hostel is in a busy, highly populated area, we think that the bike shed security could o with being beefed up. Otherwise it was great!
