          My friend hired the entire backpackers for a birthday party with sleepover. The owner, Cherry, is lovely. The backpackers itself is lovely with a well equipped kitchen, lovely sitting room and good rooms. The backpackers is also in a great location. A truly enjoyable stay.

          Great rooms perfect location, 5 mins from centre of Ambleside. Excellent for walkers as has all the facilities of a hostel but no time restrictions. Although no parking, free street parking available near by.

          Thanks for a great review, sorry the drying room couldn't cope, must have been really stuffed with very wet stuff. It usually dries all that's put in it, however soaked boots can be a pain to dry overnight
