"Not sure how in the world this hostel managed to find the nicest people in the entire Lake District and hire them as staff. This place is nothing short of amazing. I've stayed in many hostels and hotels but I've never seen such nice and friendly staff. We stayed here for three nights and I was impressed by the staff's kindness and willingness to go out of their way to help us. The breakfast is delicious and the views from the dorms were unbelievable. The beds are comfy and cozy and the location is excellent as well. One of the best hostels I've ever stayed in!"
