We had a great stay here. Lovely old traditional feel to the hostel. Fantastic drying room so we were able to risk doing washing ! Friendly staff. Great breakfast very promptly served as we needed to get going. The self catering facilities were good. Our room just had a wash basin but there were masses of showers & toilets. No...

So impressed with the whole experience of our stay. We were a group of 10, 5 x Dads and 5 x 7 year olds. The 14 bed dorm was perfect for us. Food was great and location is simply stunning. Staff were friendly and wonderful with the kids. 2nd stay with The YHA and can't praise enough

I was fortunate that an airbnb booking was cancelled at the last moment and Wasdale Hall had one bed spare in a male dorm. I booked for two nights as I had a day's training yomping along Wastwater, up to Scafell Pike and back down again. The weather held up, however, the jet engine head wind was an issue. Wasdale...

As the title suggests this was my do rest visit to a yha and what a lovely building it was. Sat on the lake the hostel has great views over the water. Took a little getting used to the dormitory area but slept well. To say it was Easter the hostel wasn't full with some spare beds. We checked in...

It would seem that not a lot of people know about this place. Which all in all works brilliantly for us. We went there as a family taking three teenagers of varying degrees of moodiness. Has to be said that it would seem that all of them enjoyed it for the most part. The building itself is lovely and to...

I'll start with the good things: This hostel looks lovely, and is an absolutely beautiful location (right on the shores of the Wastwater). I ate there both nights of my stay, and the food was nice and the service excellent. Reception staff were friendly and helpful. If you want a base to climb Scafell Pike or explore the wider Wasdale...

We spent three nights here and for a YHA it's not bad at all. Currently undergoing some roof repairs but did not stop our enjoyment. Scaffolding around the building means I can only score 4 instead of the 5 is deserves. The staff are fantastic, very friendly and relaxed. Bob (the manager) has a perfect attitude towards his guests and...

We were here walking a few ridges. Lovely weather, great views, stunning autumnal colours. The hostel was great, easy access to the valley, although still a drive from any of the peaks. I'm looking forward to seeing the new roof and the building in all its glory when the scaffolding comes down. Great games room, and plenty of facilities.

Super friendly staff and great grub make this a special YHA in a wonderful location. I stayed for a week on an excellent course with Carolclimb Outdoor Adventures and had a marvellous time. I enjoyed the meals and for a change the highly rated Strands Inn and micro-brewery is only a mile away. Thanks very much to Bob and the...
