Great location”

Situated just in front of Derwentwater Lake, bus stop is just 1 minute walk from the hostel. Waking up from the sound of waterfall behind the hostel is just way too perfect.

Hostel with a great view”

View of the hostel is amazing, very close to places of adventures, place for family picnic

The place has a nice view and hence lots of the playing area including a Football ground. However, they can have more clean rooms and better self catering kitchen

Nice Hostel, but could improve in hygiene”

Very close to nearby adventure activities, great view of lake from outside, great if going in a large group

The location of the Hostel was very nice. The football field outside as well as the view of lake was very nice. However, two things that were of concern. The hygiene conditions in the washrooms were below par and while, checking in they informed us that they would not accept cards.
