“A disaster without any doubt”
Reviewed 31 August 2011

I visited the whole England,and this was surely the worst hostel i found. It's in the main road,but it isn't easy to find because there aren't indications. There's a parking but it's horrible and unsafe.There aren't many rooms and you also must be very lucky to have a good room. Our room was very draughty and, incredibly, there wasn't a key to close the door.
I've been here in august but there were only few people,bad company.The kitchen was dirty and unsafe,the bathrooms were small and uncomfortable. Breakfast is not included even though on internet they said it is. Moreover you can't pay by credit card.

We found this accommodation to be more than adequate for what we wanted it for. If you stay in a B&B expect to pay £30 each a night! Rooms are basic, plenty of hot water, tv room and free tea and coffee.

Approx 5 minute walk into town and you can come and go as you like. Really friendly staff.

Look forward to our next stay.

Stayed here on a college trip, took over the whole hostel. A great location and the staff were very accomodating. However the dorms were quite tired and the beds uncomfortable. Not reccomended if you are used to staying in hotels, but for young backpackers or if you are on a seriously tight budget then ideal. One or two nights are enough, but for sleep and a shower for a nights rest is fine .here is a TV room for guests and a large breakfast room on the plus side. For the price you cant really complain at all, a nice old building but don't expect the ritz. Also be careful there special bed covers that fit over the pillowcase and duvet so they dont have to wash the pillowcase/duvet! WOULD SERIOUSLY RECCOMEND YOU BRING A SLEEPING BAG!!!

Denton House is exactly what it claims to be, a hostel not a 5 star hotel. The accomodation is all you need on a walking, biking or anything else for that matter trip. Clean facilities and rooms, free tea and coffee, no curfew, plenty of on site parking, drying room, kitchen and showers, HOT showers. For what you pay its great value. Dont come and expect a spa and gym and room service, do come if you want to shower, change have a few beers 5 minutes away and a good nights sleep in a clean comfy bed afterwards. The staff are also very friendly and helpful.

This place is a mess, and in need of some real care. There's cheap hostels and then there's down right rubbish.
The staff seemed nice enough, the beds were comfortable.
But it was noisy, unclean and seemed like someone was trying to make a quick buck.
