This was my first time staying in a YHA property so I didn't really know what to expect and was a little anxious about the whole thing but I needn't have been as I had a really good weekend. I booked a dorm room for two nights and was put into a four bed. On the first night I only...

The common room areas are spacious, clean and functional.There is a cafe/canteen style food area in the main building where there is a menu choice of cooked meals for breakfast and supper. The menu looked good, but we chose...

Nice YHA in a great location 2 minutes from the centre of Grasmere. The staff were all very friendly and helpful, particularly Sarah who helped us pick a couple of places to eat and suggested a fantastic walk up to Helms Crag.

This was a return visit to Grasmere YHA (the previous visit was in October 2015). We stayed in dormitories this time and had a mixed experience. The men were apparently all early to bed and my other half tells me he had an excellent night's sleep. However, the ladies came to bed in dribs and drabs up to 00.30 and...

My mum & I booked in to give my mum modern experience of YHAs (her last was around 50 years ago!) We were welcomed by staff & fellow guests alike. The hostel was warm, comfortable with good facilities.
