Good for groups
Clean and functional. Lovely staff. Can see this is great for families and groups with large communal areas but wouldn’t stay again as a couple. Very basic for same price as a b&b.

Beautiful Grasmere, female dorm
Beautiful building, great location, free parking, friendly helpful staff, comfy rooms. Can't fault it for the price! Only improvement I'd suggest is sprucing up the bathrooms.
