Liked: The location is perfect for lovers of rusticity--it's only a mile from Grasmere Village. The dorms are spotless. During the week, if there are not too many guests, the owners allow you to be alone in a four-bed dorm room.

Disliked: The 5-pound breakfast that they advertise consists of cereal and toast. Really! That kind of breakfast is free at most hostels. The full English breakfast is 10 pounds.

Liked: Great staff, brilliant location, cuddly cats hanging around, comfortable beds, warm blankets + extra wool blankets, very clean bathrooms and bedrooms, drying room for wet clothes etc, nice outside area, good value for money. Would definitely come again! Great for backpackers or families.

Disliked: It might have been easier if the breakfast had been offered as a buffet instead of bringing every single basket etc to each table. Just an idea to simplify, nothing else to criticise! :)

Liked: I loved it! It is a little out of the way but that's what the lakes are about the location is bang at the bottom of the mountains looking over the valley and a short walk to Grassmere the local village. The staff are fantastic! The rooms are clean and everyone is very friendly and helpful. It's close to great walking locations. I would recommend it!

Disliked: Jenny left no negative feedback.
