Too many doors

location, food, staff
The car park was very full. There were too many doors in the hostel and not enough sign, I got lost when I enter and exit. There were many bathrooms and toilets which is good.

the lake outside the window, the lonely swan on the lake, the lake
The lake is just outside the window, which gave me a quite good experience to the lake.

Lovely stay

Value for money, cleanness, privacy.
Lovely, pleasant stay at the hostel. Much better than we were expecting. Water head Ambleside is a cuter small town and the hostel is located right in the centre, very picturesque on the lake. I would definitely go again and highly recommend.

Budget and basic.

Wc and toilet near to room. Right in front of lake and sport facilities.
The doors slammed loudly causing noise pollution especially during sleeping time.

Good value for money

excellent location (2 mins walk to Ambleside pier), clean room, self-catering amenities
Got an excellent deal from Agoda for a 3-person en-suite. Stunning view of Lake Windermere from the room. The self-catering kitchen can easily get a bit crowded with 4-5 families preparing meals at the same. Not enough on-site parking spaces.
