Stayed over the bank holiday, staff were friendly. The hostel can only fit 4 cars at any one time so you need to find offroad parking. The location is good, in Ambleside. Tesco's walking distance and a Catholic Church. Lots of eating and drinking places. Bedding doesn't get cleaned just a white sleeping sheet. Bathrooms are outdated. Cereal and toast is provided every morning. Lots of space in the kitchen to cook. Kitchen is clean. Kitchen closes early 10pm and breakfast is until 10am.

I spent the weekend at the hostel with 18 of my colleagues on a charity challenge and cannot recommend this hostel more highly. I am in my mid 50s and have not stayed in a hostel for 30 years but this was very comfortable. A little short on toilets for what I normally enjoy but otherwise excellent. The hostel owner is great and relaxed.

I have just returned from a weekend's stay here for a charity walk with 19 of my friends/colleagues. From booking with David @ Ambleside Backpackers right through to the end of our stay everything was really easy, pleasant and comfortable. The hostel was clean, the rooms were comfy and great value for money. There's a really relaxed and homely atmosphere. I'd definitely stay again.
Thank you David and Cherry for answering my endless questions and all your help with our visit.

Stayed here with 7 friend's as a base for bight charity walk. Accommodation was just what we needed and all clean. Kitchen facilities were great and staff very helpful. We used the well equipped kitchen and brews were on tap. The lounge was great to relax in and any issues like teabags running out were sorted very promptly. 5 mins walk from town and plenty of parking nearby..Thanks for a great base to explore

Just returned having spent 2 nights here with a group of friends, whilst we tackled the Fairfield Horseshoe.
Hostel is in a great location, within walking distance to town centre & amenities.
Bunk room, shower block, loos & kitchen are kept very clean.
The provided breakfast of toast, cereal, tea & coffee is adequate. You can also use the kitchen to cook yourselves a hot breakfast.
I found the residents to be respectful of each other, which is important where sleep quality can be an issue.
Would stay there again in a shot.
