I really enjoyed staying here. The staff were really friendly and the facilities were fantastic. The breakfast is very good too if you’re trying to decide whether to go for it!

There is no parking so you have to find somewhere in the village, which is easy (although the national trust car park makes it sound like you shouldn’t park overnight!)
You are a few minutes walk from the pub and the surroundings are beautiful. Thank you for a good stay!

Had a fantastic stay at Elterwater Hostel. Great location with easy access to loads of great walks - had a lovely run along the river one morning. The surrounding area is absolutely gorgeous and the perfect place to enjoy nature.

Staff are very friendly and extremely helpful. I really appreciated the time they spent to answer questions and provide suggestions of walks/areas to visit.

Rooms & bathrooms are nice and very clean. Overall very well set up for a hostel. The individual USB charging station + light for each bunkbed is especially helpful.

The cooked breakfast is good value and a great way to start a long day of walking.

Can't wait to come back! :)

Situated in the lovely village of Elterwater, this independent hostel is a great place to stay whilst exploring Great Langdale. The staff are experts at all the local activities and can advise you on the many excellent adventures to be had in the area. Good value meals can be ordered including a delicious home made apple crumble! I've visited this hostel many times and it's been consistently good.
