Value for money in lovely old building
We had a room for 2 which was small as you’d expect but with comfy bunk beds, thick duvets and it was nice and warm on a cool evening. Powerful shower off our room plus shared toilet nearby in the corridor. All very clean. Breakfast was tasty. Friendly staff. Nice pub directly across the road. Enjoyed our stay.

Great location on the Pennine Way
Great location on the Pennine Way and good services and facilities. Slightly characterless common room though and welcome was less than friendly on arrival, otherwise I would have given an even higher rating.

Walkers hostel
Good hostel with decent food and facilities for walkers (e.g. Washing machine, drying room). Opposite the pub which is handy although they do sell booze too.

Good friendly Hostel
Arrived early and though reception was closed I was still able to get in and make myself a pot of tea ( honesty box system) and sit in the garden making friends with Harvey the Hostel dog. Large and comfortable lounge area, good showers, helpful staff and good basic food. Pub just across the green. Overall excellent.
