Welcome to the website of Carlisle City Hostel, the city’s only independent hostel for backpackers, walkers, cyclists and tourists. We have clean and comfortable rooms with a total of 16-20 beds ready for you to rest your weary head after a day of walking, cycling, sightseeing, shopping or many of the other activities Carlisle and the surrounding area has to offer.
There is a communal kitchen for you to prepare your own meals and perhaps make a packed lunch for your onward journey. There is a fridge available along with free tea and coffee and a basic breakfast is included in the price of your bed. Free Wi-fi is available in communal areas. We also have cycle & bag storage which is currently in the large cellar.
There are many things to see and do in Carlisle and we are happy to advise you and can provide free city maps and insider information on budget eats and drinks in the city.
