Spent a night here with a group of friends. Booked a private room. Exactly what we'd expect from YHA. Amazing location. Didn't try the food but their staff were friendly and helpful. Great facilities. Would stay again or camp on site.
We had planned to camp but after a complete drenching in the Dales on the way to the Lakes we called this hostel and thankfully they had space in dorms. I haven't youth hostelled for 30 years and it was new to my 17 year...More
My family and I normally camp when we visit the lakes but decided to try youth hostelling instead.
It was all very last minute and struggled to find a YHA which could accommodate four of us. We booked into the King George YHA on 23/08/16...More

My sons and I prebooked our evening meal and breakfast so we didn't need a fridge,however there is a communal kitchen for those who wish to self cater. My sons brought their own hair dryer but I don't think the shower room had them any way. There wasn't any wi-fi which unbelievably didn't bother my sons. It was just nice to get back to basics and do a little bonding. Hope this helps!
