Nice write-up on the UK Hillwalking website about what it's like to run a remote hostel:

Interesting article, I never realised it was an independent, thanks for the link.
Over hill, over dale. Thorough brush, thorough brier....

It was run by the YHA until it closed in 2002.  It re-opened again, as an indenpendent affiliated YHA hostel in 2006.

The new wardens, Suzy and Martin, are doing a great job up there.   Supported by the Skiddaw House Foundation charity.
