Derwentwater is an exciting place to be working at a hostel. Hoovering the east wing, or pulling the curtains there is always a variety show on display.
No two school groups are the same and just recently DERWENTWATER INDEPENDENT HOSTEL staff were fascinated and intrigued to see how students from two very different parts of the globe enjoyed their visit to the hostel.
Many people assume that youth hostels are used by solely by school groups, ramblers and backpackers. But here at DERWENTWATER INDEPENDENT HOSTEL (previously Derwentwater youth hostel ) we have had a huge variety of guests from all walks of life and for all sorts of reasons.
