We stayed here on a C2C ride with a child. Whilst it's still undergoing refurbishments (the restaurant isn't open yet) they were welcoming and helpful. The accommodation is clean and well-maintained together with being in the centre of Keswick. Secure cycle storage is a bonus as well.

The hostel & the riverwalkway were very badly damaged in the winterstorms meaning that the lower two floors are out of use .The association has worked really hard with temporary measures on enable the hostel to function up to a point .They deserve commendation for this otherwise about 60 people would not have reasonably priced accomodation in Keswick

A well maintained hostel, really comfortable beds and a good number of showers, facilities available on each floor. The kitchen area was small but this was due to the flooding taking out the bottom floor of the hostel. Large area for sitting together to eat though which was great for our school group of 14.

We stayed in April as a group of 10 men; we had one room for four and one room for six. The reception staff were super friendly, we were given a spare set of keys for each room and the price for one night on a busy Saturday in Keswick was about £30 each. Our room was lovely but basic.... More

As the Youth Hostel had been damaged and there were no catering facilities all I can comment on is the accommodation, which is very comfortable for a Youth Hostel and has good facilities such as a TV lounge, reading room and kitchen. However, the best asset is the location, as it is literally a 5 minute walk into the town... More
