PROPERTY’S FAVORITE REVIEW
Reviewed 6 days ago via mobile

Wow. Keswick Youth Hostel is something else. We had a beautifully renovated room ensuite & with a balcony over the river. It was a very wet day & everyone had wet gear but the hostel put the heating on early & that was so helpful. The staff were all delightful. They couldn't have been more helpful. We had delicious food...

Accommodation was clean and the staff very friendly. rooms were rather tight compared to other YHA's (Ambleside and Coniston to name two). breakfast was OK and the packed lunch was poor. soggy sandwiches was little filling (or dry - cheese) and not a great selection of fruit.

Hi Gary, Thanks for taking the time to leave a review, well done on climbing Scafell Pike! We've tried to keep the disruption caused by the building works to a minimum, and it is good to hear they did not affect your enjoyment of the stay. They will hopefully be finished any day now. We're glad you enjoyed your stay...

This seems to be one of the better Youth Hostel's in the Lake District. The newly refurbished bar is very nice serving a decent selection of beers. The room was warm and comfy and could only really have been improved by having charging points on the beds. I've seen them in other YHA's and they work better than a multiplug...

Stayed here weekend just gone. Rooms were perfect for getting your head down and getting ready for the day. Kitchen newly fitted all appliances were new and in perfect working order. Bar / dining area very comfortable and even had a selection of craft beers in the fridge. Breakfast great and plenty enough to fuel a good days walking. Packed...

Hi Kenton, thanks for leaving a review of our hostel, it is in a great location for walking. We're glad you enjoyed our breakfast, we think it's great value, especially if you pre-book online for an extra 10% off. Also glad you made use of our self-catered kitchen which has recently been refurbished. We hope to see you soon

A group of ten of us came for a stag do, mainly an activity weekend so we weren't exactly boisterous! The rooms were clean and so were the communal showers/toilets. The bar was well priced and the staff were really friendly. Was a bargain really for what we paid for it.

Excellent self catering cooking/ dining/ kitchen facilities. Separate dining area in bar area if kitchen is busy. Also provide cooked breakfast and meals if you prefer not to cook. Fabulous location overlooking the...

Thank you for the kind words, we're glad that the hostel ticked all the right boxes for you! We're sorry to hear about the nocturnal issues - we do attempt to enforce a 'keep it quiet after 11pm' policy but sometimes guests have other ideas. We do leave out an Out-of-Hours contact number on the ground floor near the entrance...

We visited the youth hostel at the end of March and stayed in dormitories. The rooms were a bit on the small side when compared to some other YHA properties that we've stayed in. Whilst the post-flooding refurbishment continues, it wasn't problematic and the self-catering kitchen / dining area is fully functional. Despite staying on a Monday night we had...

Hi Mike, thank you for taking the time to leave us some feedback following your recent stay. We're sorry that you found the dormitories to be a little cramped - we do have some large rooms that we use as dormitories but in the event that these are already full, we do sometimes have to use some slightly smaller rooms...

Very impressed with the facilities especially considering the price. Even though they're still doing plenty of work here it has minimal impact on guests. Clean and comfortable had a great nights sleep. Good breakfast and good facilities if you want to cook your own. Friendly staff. Can't think of a negative. I think you'll be hard pressed to find better...

The hostel is unfortunately right beside the river and has clearly been refitted to a good standard following the floods in 2015. The staff were really helpful and friendly, the facilities were clean and tidy no less than I'd expect from YHA these days. I self catered on the night I arrived and the kitchen was well equipped and plenty...
