|The hostel was not open ( renovation not complete) for our registered date but we were able to find other accommodation in Ambleside.|
|The lakeside view is superb!!|
|Standing beside Lake Windermere, the view is awesome just outside your room window.
Staff are all friendly, and there are lots of backpackers, families to chat or play with.
It's a really nice place to stay when visiting the lake district.|
|The interior of the building looked neglected. The bathrooms and toilets did not feel clean. All 3 of us woke up in the morning with back aches and feeling very tired, therefore the beds were definitely not comfortable. Based on this experience we were tempted to book into a hotel for the next night of our journey.|
|Of all the hostels we stayed in on our two month trip, Ambleside was the most disappointing. I was aware of the building's future refurbishment, but the staff were less than welcoming and the facility was in a shabby and unkept state.Its location on the edge of the Lake was excellent but staff weren't proactive as I had witnessed in other parts of the U.K.|
|everything is great with wonderful lakeview|
|One of the best hostels I have stayed in. Stunning location on the edge of Lake Windermere, incredibly clean and very friendly and helpful staff! I will be returning soon!|
