Positive Reviews

The view

The obvious highlight of staying at Yha Ambleside is the magnificent vista of Lake Windermere, just outside your front door The front bedrooms have windows with a view, the terrace is a great place to relax and contemplate and it is quick to pop over to the pier for a look around.

Top self-catering facilities

You will find the kitchen and dining areas to be of fantastic quality, with multiple sinks and cookers making things easier for you The common areas, drying room and other facilities have also been much appreciated.

Refurbished value

Guests of Yha Ambleside have noted the newly-refurbished hostel is of excellent quality, with comfort and cleanliness hallmarks of a stay and the price also rather pleasing.

Restaurant excellent

A wide menu of tasty offerings across all meals and a well-stocked bar, including local brews, means you will have the chance to eat well on any budget.

Negative Reviews

Corridor doors noise

If the doors in the corridor slam, it can be fairly loud so make sure you have earplugs with you in case of this, or possible night-time dormitory distractions.

Too small for some

A small number of guests have been unhappy about the size of either the bathroom and toilet facilities, or the rooms themselves, but this has not been the case for the large proportion of guests who left wishing for a return visit.

Minor things do not detract

People have noted that the Wi-Fi connection could be better throughout the hostel, the lack of elevator could be an issue for those with heavy luggage and the heating has occasionally needed adjustment, but these have not detracted greatly from their stays.
