“Great, but basic, hostel in a beautiful location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2011

we stayed at helvellyn youth hostel in may this year while visiting friends in glenridding. this is the first time we had been back in about three years and the place had really improved. the hostel had been newly re painted and the food was excellent. the staff were friendly and there was beer on draft even! people were even coming in from outside to have a beer and some food. we were talking to a couple who had walked past earlier and wanted to see what the hostel was like.

there was a very good atmosphere and the staff were very helpful and welcoming. nothing was too much trouble. this hostel obviously needs some money spent on it, the toilet facilities are tired and very basic, and there are no plug sockets in the rooms. however, it was all very clean and it was obvious that the staff there took a real pride in their site and this really came through on our stay. we'll definitely be back!

ps food at the hostel is much cheaper than pub down the road and just as good!
