Brilliant break.!
The YHA Langdale is a well run hostel, with a wide range of leisure and outdoor activities on its doorstep. The hostel itself is clean, and its staff are friendly and helpful. This capped with the fact that it's set in an idyllic position for exploring the Lake District national park. Great value for money, and would thoroughly recommend. I'll be back.!

Remote but high standards in the hostel.
The location is a little remote, and the car park not as big as it could have been. The staff were very pleasant, although there were some noisy guests in the common^/communal areas. The Breakfast was good value and the area picturesque. There was maintenance work being carried out on the building leading to a lot of hazard tape which spoilt the look of the building although this would be temporary.
