    Great stay at YHA Windermere. Shout out to Rachael especially for her friendliness - she rescued a little bird earlier in the day, what a nice thing to do. I've joined up as a member as a result of my stay at this YHA.

    Fantastic location with excellent views. Spotless throughout and comfortable bunk beds. Staff were incredibly helpful, especially the chap who lives down the road and works at the youth hostel. The wifi was a bit dodgy at times.

    My daughter and I had a great visit to the YHA Windermere. It was located upon a hillside with spectacular views over Lake Windermere and the surrounding countryside. Our room was compact and clean; the beds very comfortable with accessible charging points and personal bedside lights. There were plenty of WC’s and toilets and we never had to wait. The kitchen was well equipped and public areas were warm and in good condition. Thank you to the staff too who were friendly and polite.

    Awesome hostel! If you don’t have a car it’s a bit of a trek from the city but it’s a nice walk! Only thing that would be nicer is a bit earlier check in time, 5pm seemed quite late compared to other places.

    No staff available when wanting to get luggage to leave, showers were not accessible during my stay, other than a nice view from the location, an utterly disappointing experience. Would have stayed elsewhere had I known there was no shower access!
