Eight friends stayed one night during half term so a few families and quite busy. The self catering kitchen was friendly chaos with all helping each other. I.E. how to use some of the hobs sharing ovens even recipes. excellent meals cooked, washed down with wine/beer from the hostel bar. Perfect. Two of us enjoyed sharing the table tennis table...

Recently visited Ilam Hall with my classmates for a residential. I have never been any YHA hostel before, this was the very first time and I definitely want to go back. The staff was super nice and helpful. The Hall itself is amazing and I loved the gardens, too. I'm an outdoorsy person, therefore I really enjoyed all the activities....

We spent Christmas here with family and it was my best Christmas in years. The accommodation is YHA, so is not swish, but it was clean and comfortable and just what we needed. Christmas dinner was lovely - and beautifully laid out. In fact, all our meals were great. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful throughout our stay. We...

A wonderful stay in a friendly atmosphere with excellent efficient and helpful staff. Lovely cooked breakfast and good facilities to self cater. Spacious en-suite room with comfortable beds. Beautiful area for walking with both Dovedale and Manifold valleys to explore. Super pubs for eating out, try Bluebell at Tissington and Royal Oak at Wetton. Will return soon! Ree.

An amazing hostel which caters for families and mixed groups really well. The food and accommodation were fine, all needs were catered for though it was a pity that the real beer had run out, especially with it being a party weekend.

This hostel is beautifully situated, clean, warm and cosy. However we felt really sorry for the staff. They worked so hard to clean the communal areas (in particular the self catering kitchen) only for it to be trashed within hours by really inconsiderate families who did not even bother to wash up their own crockery, wipe surfaces or mop up...

Terrific staff; lovely lounges; and a National Trust cafe round the corner as a bonus. I liked the hostel so much that I extended my stay. Three suggestions to make it even better: (1) that there be a supper club table for singles or couples, so that they can socialise over their meal with other guests; (2) could there please...
