"I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed my stay at Elmscott Youth Hostel on 5 June. You have a wonderful hostel and I was made most welcome by Tony the volunteer warden. I think your facilities are first class particularly the kitchen and the showers are the best in any hostel I have ever stayed in!

I will be back hopefully for a longer stay next time."

"A huge 'CONGRATULATIONS' for what you have done down in Elmscott for the YH movement and Coast Path walkers - as well as for your own Hamlet.

Tony, great guy that he is, and his wife (whose name I never discovered), told me enthusiastically of the story of your franchised YH and how you came to own it. Well, this is just a Big Thank You from - I call myself a true 'Hosteller's Hosteller' (and Life Member). My favourite Hostels are the little ones, the more simple ones; they have so much character - and the folk staying there are also much more likely to also be Hostellers' Hostellers too - obvious places like Coniston Coppermines and Black Sail, as well as Ennerdale and Elterwater too. Now also Elmscott!! Grand!"
