I'm panning a few solo weekends biking trips in the coming months and have obviously stumbled across various hostels. Never stayed at one before and am wondering exactly what they mean by shared rooms.
In my head I picture rows of beds like something out of a army barrack. How bad is it?
Or does anyone have any better suggestions for say a extra £10 or less a night?
At the moment am looking at edale and ambleside. I was looking at esthwaite but as I'd be using the train to getthere (windermere) am I also right in thinking wind-ambleside is easier to get to than esthwaite?
Thanks in advance.
