This is the second time that I have taken a large group (18 this year) to Keswick. We found the staff to be pleasant the food to be great for hungry walkers and the setting to be very convenient. At £69 for 2 nights BandB and one nights evening meal it is also good value.

A lovely little hostel, often busy but well worth booking in advance as you're right in the centre of town yet overlooking the river (many dormitories and the lounge area have views). Sleep to the sound of the river and wake up looking at Skiddaw. It doesn't get better than that. Decently equipped members' kitchen, separate quiet room for reading... More

We had a lovely holidays, keswick is a lovely and very busy town, the hostel is just 2 minutes from the center, our room seemed to be new, carpets were immaculate and beds very comfy, our kids liked the lounge which had a TV a pool table & ping pong table. The second night we had meals, kids eat free... More

Keswick is wonderful and this Youth Hostel situated in the middle of the town on the riverside makes a great base for exploring Keswick and the wider lake district. The hostel is one of the older/more traditional style and is not very large. We found the hostel was very clean throughout with a good lounge area, separate quieter reading room... More

A comfy and generally well-equiped YH beside the river near the town centre. It opened at 14:00 which was very convenient as I had arrived in town early. The warden sold me a discounted ticket for the lake launch, which was also useful. The dorm I was in was comfy and unlike some YH's had enough space for everyone's rucksacks,... More

I spent two nights here, taking a bed in a dormitory for four people, in April. The hostel staff were friendly and helpful, the accommodation was clean, the breakfasts were very generous for £5.25 and certainly filled me up until lunch time. I was able to secure my belongings in a lockable drawer under the bed with a padlock which... More

£68 for two people (inc breakfast). Shared bathroom and no TV or towels. To be fair facilities are what I'd expect from YHA, but have travelled across England this week (cycled from lands end), this is the 2nd most expensive place (most have been B&B - had en suite and TV), and has had the least to offer. There is... More

I have been to this YH on previous occasions but never as a group leader, 29 x 15 year old boys found the place ideal, right in the middle of town with plenty of open space to tire themselves out in, hard-courts opposite gave ideal alternative to grass with inclement weather. Food fantastic and worth every penny, we stayed 2... More

I had a really good time in this hostel. All clean and with a nice atmosphere. I didn't give full rating because the staff hasn't been very clear regarding breakfast. At first they told me you had to pay for it but then found out from the catering staff you only have to pay for hot breakfast, which is just... More
