Staff welcomed us from the car park. Friendly and helpful staff made arriving really easy. Put dogs were also made to feel really welcome. Beds comfy, lounge nice and near the town. Highly recommend. No frills, but had everything we needed.

from the moment we walked in they were really helpful, Libby was helpful in advising us where to eat locally and could not have been more attentive. The hostel is not far from the centre of Keswick, took around five minutes to walk into the centre. It has good facilities including free tea and coffee (bonus!) the lounge was comfy... More

12 friends stayed and this is a unit I have stayed previously. Very good location only a 10 minute walk into the town centre. The accommodation is basic but very clean. The beds are bunk style but surprisingly large with very supportive mattresses. Very competitively priced and the hosts Libby and Lauren do a superb job especially during our two... More

Had a brilliant 2 night stay here as part of a big stag group. Libby was very accommodating and breakfast was amazing! We had a BBQ between activites (Ghyll scrambling was 1 organised with Lee who works with Denton, which was brilliant), and they have provided a BBQ and tools. Only a short 10 minute walk to the centre and... More

We stayed here with a big group of friends, for a great location and access to Whinlatter. The annex was our home for the weekend and it was perfect, with good hot showers and plenty of space. The lady at the main house (didn't catch your name sorry) put on a great packed lunch for us on the Saturday, just... More

I recently stayed here for three nights as I was visiting Keswick for work. The area had been badly hit by flooding, with the result that the town is currently quieter than it usually, the local supermarket has the bare necessities, buses are on an emergency timetable, and the road through the Lake District is cut off. But the local... More

Libby reminded me what I loved so much about backpacking in the middle east. Arriving there, I was greeted with a friendly welcome. For someone who just wants to get out and explore, this is the place for you. It's full of other hikers and adventurers so you'll be sure to find similar personalities. It isn't a hopping place but... More

Friendly and welcoming hostel a little way out of the town centre. They had no private rooms available so we were in the Annexe Building, which was a mixed-sex dormitory. The beds weren't bad although not quite as comfortable as in the YHA hostels we'd stayed in on the previous two nights. Our mistake was to pick the bunks at... More
