Excellent stay at this YHA. Room was clean and comfortable, food on offer was superb (large portions). I must say the staff were incredibly helpful (I managed to lose my wallet on the cycle from Penrith) they couldn't do enough to help. Really appreciated

Though we had a wee bit of trouble finding this YHA (didn't see the lamppost sign and didn't expect it to be down a short river front walkway), once we got there it was fantastic. Loved the front walkway where you could enjoy a beverage and watch the river go by. Very welcoming. Four guys on a LDW with all... More

Thanks for your great review of YHA Keswick. You’re right, we have a great spot right on the river but maybe a little unexpected! It’s always nice to hear that people would like to visit again, so we hope it won’t be long before you’re back at YHA Keswick. YHA Keswick Team More

A good place to stay when you want to hike around! Good rooms, clean, and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpful, as is usual in England! Breakfast was also quite good. One of the best hostel I came accross in England.

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

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.
