    Great rooms perfect location, 5 mins from centre of Ambleside. Excellent for walkers as has all the facilities of a hostel but no time restrictions. Although no parking, free street parking available near by.

    Thanks for a great review, sorry the drying room couldn't cope, must have been really stuffed with very wet stuff. It usually dries all that's put in it, however soaked boots can be a pain to dry overnight
