I always like staying at Keswick YHA - I think it is my favourite one and this was my 3rd (or 4th stay) ! Last year - there was a Summer heatwave during my stay. This year, lot's of rain - but no matter, I love the place all the same. I missed the meals and big breakfast of course...

Thank you for your review, and we're sorry we were unable to provide better weather for your stay! Maybe next time? We plan to re-open our on-site restaurant by March so hopefully it'll be ready in time for your 4th (or was it 5th?) stay here at YHA Keswick. :)

Good value - 3 bedded room for £39 Be aware that due to flood damage, no meals provided and self catering kitchen is only kettle, microwaves toaster and fridges. Will be even better once all the flood damage repairs are completed. Need to access via temporary entrance on Brewery Lane - and no parking immediately outside, but can stop to...

This yha hostel is brilliantly located in the centre of the town & overlooks the river & park, which is lovely. Although they are undergoing repair & renovation, this didn't effect my stay, apart from limiting what I could cook, as their kitchen is temporarily replaced with basic facilities (kettle, fridge & microwave). The rooms were a good size, had...

Great location, only a few to a room which was nice, comfy beds. Staff were really friendly and helpful. Relaxed vibe! The hostel was really clean, tidy and in perfect condition. Was a great night's stay from the unpredictable weather in a tent!

This is right in the centre of town so perfect location after a days mountain biking. Leaving the bikes in the car was a bit of worry but then Keswick isn't renowed for it's crime rate. There's no on site parking but if you pull into Otley car park you can check in and unload. Either stay there and pay...

Enjoyed our 4 nights at the YHA Keswick. We were aware that refurbishments were taking place due to flooding so weren't perturbed by this, just grateful it was open for business. We could still do the basics of making a cuppa, prepping a packed lunch etc and there's lots of choice for restaurants and cafes nearby. Hostel was busy but...

Friendly, helpful staff, lovely rooms, gorgeous location- the views are unbeatable, close proximity to lots of amenities within Keswick, short walk down to the lake side, many many walking opportunities to choose from. I can't wait to visit again to see YHA Keswick in all its glory once repairs are finished.

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
