YHA Castleton Losehill Hall Reviews

The Location

The hostel is located in a former stately home about half a mile from the centre of the village of Castleton. It is situated in huge grounds full of trees and grazing sheep and accessed by a long driveway that snakes up from the road to Hope. In front of the hostel itself are formal gardens and behind the hostel is the magnificence of the Great Ridge and more specifically Lose Hill. Both the ridge and a rough track down to the village can be accessed from the back of the hostel.

Whilst the location is stunning the lack of lighting on the road and the fact that it is situated outside Castleton itself may deter some visitors from sampling any of the excellent pubs in the village!

Rooms and Bathrooms

With this being one of the flagship upgraded hostels and also formerly being the Peak District educational authority centre, the rooms are a cut above the average. Almost all rooms are en suite with showers and toilets and wash basins in the room. There are all types of rooms from singles to 8 bed dorms but all rooms are furnished with bunk beds and have a lockable box underneath them though you would need to provide your own padlock. The water pressure and temperature are generally good and rooms at the front have excellent views over the gardens. There is also a separate building at the back of the hostel which can be booked exclusively by groups and is self contained.

Common Spaces

The hostel is seriously huge and has plenty of common space. The sitting room is beautiful, full of old furniture and with doors opening out onto the garden. There is a bar with a fire which is at the bottom of the grand staircase and a cosy spot to spend with a beer. The self catering kitchen is large, modern and well equipped with plenty of cookers, fridges and tables. The dining room where breakfast is served is also big enough to cope with the heavy demand and has long bench style seating. There is also a large drying room and a function room. There is a TV and seating in reception and also another television in the bar. There is also plenty of outdoor seating to use in good weather.

Summary

The hostel is an excellent self contained option in the heart of the Peak District. It does seem to attract largeish groups of walkers/mountain bikers but has a friendly and sociable atmosphere especially with the bar area. The grounds are beautiful and the staff seem to offer lots of activities for children which probably accounts for the larger than average percentage of family groups. Whilst it is undoubtedly a hostel easier to reachh by car than public transport it is worth the effort either way!
