19/09/2017 - "Excellent accommodation especially for anyone doing the C2C bike ride. Secure bike storage, comfortable rooms and a hot powerful shower. Just what you need after a day in the saddle."

22/08/2017 - "Very clean. Easy walk from station and close to town centre. Roomy twin bedroom offered a peaceful night's sleep in the attic. Well equipped light and airy kitchen. Lovely to chat with other cyclists and listen to the radio in the morning. Will stay again."

21/06/2017 - "Can not recommend enough, as a family of 5 it can be hard finding accommodation suitable for the family that doesn't separate us or cost the earth. Wayfarers was just perfect, from the location, the welcome, the room, the cleanliness, the breakfast......can not rate then highly enough!"

12/04/2017 - "Simple, immaculately kept and comfortable accommodation in the heart of Cumbria. Clean and well equipped kitchen. All backed up with a high level of service. Ask about hiring Dec, one of the Twizy Flock!"

20/03/2017 - "What a fabulous place! Never stayed in a hostel before and my husband & I weren't disappointed, previous reviews were spot on! Thanks Mark for letting us park our car in the driveway, everywhere spotless, comfy beds, kitchen & communal areas where excellent! Thanks for making our stay in Penrith a memorable one!"

01/03/2017 - "I went in February so my opinion might be a bit biased since it was off peak season but honestly it was AMAZING. Literally a two minute walk from the city centre. The staff was really friendly and gave great recommendations. The kitchen was modern and easy to use. THE BEST SHOWER I have ever used in a hostel EVER!!!! Loved every second I can't wait to come back"

22/02/2017 - "We had an amazing stay! Staff so nice and helpful. The Hostel was extra clean and extra comfortable!"

05/12/2016 - "A friendly welcome that makes it feel like home. A great kitchen space with lots of appliances which makes it very easy to use and the space is great to sit and socialise. And the showers are probably the best that any of us have used in a hostel."

09/10/2016 - "What a fabulous hostel and place to stay. So clean and such good facilities, staff so friendly and helpful - highly recommended."

19/09/2016 - "Very good service, staff very helpful, excellent facilities. Lovely location, close enough to town for eating etc, but far enough away to not be any problem with noise."

21/08/2016 - "Definitely gone the extra mile when planning the best possible hostel for anyone on C2C. From a drying room to tools. Fantastic."

30/07/2016 - "By far the best hostel on our C2C. Kitchen beautiful and fully functional. Room huge and clean, staff very friendly and helpful plus great bike storage and tools."

21/06/2016 - "Wayfarers independent hostel is the nicest I have ever stayed at. Everything was extremely clean, the rooms were aesthetically pleasing, and the bathroom and kitchen had the highest quality appliances (the shower was awesome!). Most importantly, the service was perfect. Mark was very friendly and even supplied me with bus times, routes, directions, and a map to borrow of the hiking paths in the area. I greatly appreciated his attendance to me. I would definitely recommend this hostel to other travellers. I am sorry I couldn't stay longer!"

03/06/2016 - "All 16 people who were on our C2C ride were most impressed with the Wayfarers. Everything was 10/10 and would recommend to others no problem at all. Thanks for a most enjoyable stay and thanks to the staff, excellent."

20/05/2016 - "Beautifully clean, comfortable and excellent location. Staff are very welcoming and very helpful for information where to eat. Great facilities in the kitchen. Plenty of places near by to eat."

18/04/2016 - "Not far from the train station. Everything you need in a hostel including maps, guidebooks and friendly advice about the local area. Very clean. Kitchen is well equipped. We tried out the Twizy for trip to Aira Force, Ullswater. Gives additional flexibility beyond local public transport links."
