Great location and a very family friendly hostel. The local village has everything you require - shops, pubs, cafes, post office, play area - even an outdoor pool nearby. Really helpful staff, not always visible but always accessible if needed which is perfect. Would definitely recommend this hostel and we will be back to stay again - thanks!

Stayed 22 & 23 Feb 2013, male dorm. Highly recommend this hostel, clean, tidy, fab hot power showers, friendly & helpful new manager. One evening meal I had was good. YH tucked behind main street, good parking. Small village with 3 pubs (don't bother with 4th on A65 , yuk beer and poor oily food, my favorite was the Wheatsheaf), several cafes and a good supermarket open to late. Highlight I guess was the circular Waterfall walk of 4 1/2 miles, £5 ! but there are a lot of steps to maintain, plus the walk around Ribblehead viaduct in snow.
