We have a really comfortable stay, the location is beside ambuside cruise dock, have good view face to lake, it's relaxed seating in front of the hotel.
YHA Ambleside facing Lake Windermere is a fabulous place to stay. Room was basic but clean and comfortable. The hostel has excellent facilities for travellers, communal spaces and a cafe and bar perfect for the budget traveller.
Nice place beside the lake, dorm room was clean and comfortable. There are lockers (1 GBP) to store luggage. There's a big, well-equipped kitchen and the hostel breakfast was not the cheapest (6.75 GBP) but worth it for the variety of food provided. Reception staff are helpful in giving suggestions for activities or hiking routes.
Shower stall could do with more hooks/a shelf for putting items. And it was strange that there's only 1 shower for a whole bunch of rooms on 1 floor.
The noise in the corridor’s during the night was horrendous, people coming in at all times with zero consideration for people in there rooms.
Everything! Friendly helpful staff, fantastic location-woke up to a lovely view of the lake.
