    The most perfect spot at Waterhead (Ambleside). The lakeside bar and restaurant must have one of those world beating positions ..... right at the waters edge. Simply perfect for relaxing, eating and drinking and watching the day go down with the sunset sparkling through your...More

    Thanks for your review Roger, it's great to hear that you would come again! Next time if you don't fancy the trip across the corridor to the toilets and showers we do have some 4 and 5 bed ensuite room available :)

    Great facilities, great service. Couldn't ask for more from a hostel. I would certainly recommend this hostel and stay there again. Located right on the lake side, 15 mins walk from Ambleside. Power socket next to each bed, great for charging a phone overnight.
