Came here after a long days walking, greeted by polite and friendly staff, clean and comfortable room with a well made breakfast in the morning. Nice pub within easy walking distance. Would certainly come back again.
Excellent place to stay in the lakes with lovely friendly hosts who even leant me their flask as I had stupidly forgotten mine. Very clean and well kept. Will definitely be back. Excellent location close to a pub that serves fabulous food. Thank you
Lovely cottage in excellent location to walk from Great Langdale. Family ensuite bedroom very comfortable. Good food. Staff very welcoming and happy to provide good information for our walks. Daily detailed weather forecast displayed. Second visit and would come back again.
Our first time, and it was lovely. Really friendly and felt like home! The food is also delicious, we ordered two vegan evening meals and they were both amazing. The village is tiny, just a pub, cafe and bowling green, and a bus stop. We'll definitely be back!
Had a last minute booking to stay for one night over the jubilee, thanks to YHA cancelling my booking less than a week before I was due to arrive!! Complimentary tea and coffee at this venue which was a welcome surprise after a 3 hour drive. The shared kitchen is open 24 hours too. The room was clean and bed comfortable. There was only 1 shower for ladies, this wasn't a problem as I was up before everyone else. The staff very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. I would stay again. It was a little more than i would usually pay but think it was priced for 2 guests and I was alone, also it was a bank holiday. I felt lucky to have found something at such short notice but had to pay double what I'd originally planned. That is not the fault of this establishment though.
Great location, excellent staff with everything you need. Very easy booking processes. Will definitely be visiting again, location is great for getting to some excellent walks. Just what a hostel should be like, nice mix of families, couples and solo travellers.
I have visited this hostel over the past decade or more. The team are brilliant and nothing is too much trouble ( Thank you Charlie for the nail scissors 😀) Comfy beds, hot showers, idyllic location, fabulous food. What more can I say. The atmosphere is welcoming, inclusive and a lot of fun
We had a fantastic time at Elterwater Hostel. Andy was a great host and the facilities were perfect as a base for outdoor adventure. Thanks for making us feel welcome and we look forward to coming back again soon.
I with my 14 year old daughter stayed here for two splendid days . We had single room with two bunks which was clean and adequate for our needs . The shared facility toilets showers and kitchen were clean and functional. The staff was excellent..very helpful . We booked it through Hoste.com which was a big mistake because Hostel.com who is the middle person only invites trouble . We lost money when I upgraded . Next time I will definitely book direct with Elterwater becuase I trust them . Abishek and Jesica
Visited the hostel again this year to celebrate my birthday, lovely welcome and wanted for nothing. It's always an excellent stay, but each year they find small ways to improve - this year we got to use the new kitchen facilities. Always thoroughly recommended, never disappoints. A must-visit for any fan of the Lake District.
