“The Lake District’s finest independent hostel”, it says here
On the website of Grasmere Hostel you’ll find a quote from a Guardian reviewer who wrote “The Lake District’s finest independent hostel”. If you’re thinking of accommodation in the Lake District, bear that quote in mind.

You might choose to agree with the journalist before you’ve even set foot out of your door.
It is a lovely hostel, offering privacy in a number of small, en-suite rooms sleeping from 3 to 6; modern and well equipped kitchen, laundry with a drier (how many time shave you wished for that after a day on the fells?), a lounge with all sorts of mod-cons – but you don’t need those do you, you rugged outdoor types?
Some of the best walking in England is directly accessible from the front door: The famous and challenging Fairfield Horseshoe, Helm Crag (sometimes known as The Lion and the Lamb or Old Lady at the Piano), Wainwright’s Coast to Coast runs through and continues to Patterdale, Helvellyn or Easedale Tarn. If you’re in a more gentle and contemplative mood take a gentle stroll around Grasmere Lake and Rydal Water.
Famously William Wordsworth was based here and Dove Cottage museum details the history his life and work, while he and his family are buried at St Oswald’s church in the village. He described Grasmere as, “the loveliest spot that man hath ever found”. That sentiment is painted round the circular window in the end of Grasmere Hostel. You can gaze across the valley and decide yourself whether he was right.
The hostel website shares a list of the adventurous activites which are provided locally, and they will pre-book them for you too if you give enough notice: Gorge Scrambling, Sailing, 4×4 off road experiences, Mountain Biking, Kayaking, Via Ferratta, Paint-balling, Hot Air Ballooning, Rock Climbing, Horse Riding and the list runs on…
