This hostel is awesome, the staff are great, the rooms are warm and cosy, the self-catering kitchen is spotless, and the restaurant is brilliant. The hostel is right next to the river and has a balcony that extends over it, what a relaxing place, it was like a home from home. There were six beds in the room I shared,...

Stayed for one night in a 4 person room (there was 3 of us) & it has all the facilities we needed - shared shower & loo but they were clean & there was plenty of them. The whole place is clean with plenty of friendly staff. Would definitely stay here again.

Stayed in Keswick yha for the bargain price of £15 per person on a weekday night in September. From the moment we arrived I couldn't fault it. Ample facilities both in the self catering kitchen and toilet/shower facilities. A very small reading room and a decent size common room with a balcony above the river which you can sit out...

Cheap in comparison to other B&B or hotels near by, yet except the dormitory part you get a 5+ stars treatment. Great English Breakfast at 5 pounds, 3 course dinner only 9 pounds (and worth every penny!). The staff is helpful and lovely, ready to help and share his advices. Felt like home away from home for 2 nights in...

First time I have every stayed in a YHA, so was a bit worried but I was really surprised. The reception was friendly, quick and they organised our bikes (C2C) to be locked up securely. We really wished we had booked the evening meal but a quick walk into town meant it was easy to pick up fish and chips,...

Very friendly hostel, the staff were very helpful. When we visited the card machine was not working so the let up put our bags in the room before paying. Lots of families and young people.

It seemed to be full of homeless people and migrants. Not a hotel but a hostel:( The staff were all male and would have been better served praying in a Monastery;) The rooms were bunk beds and the snoring was the last straw for me!! The place has seen better days.Avoid!! Not my idea of fun..other B&B's available.

Keswick Youth Hostel is in a central location and a perfect base for shopping in Keswick or climbing Skiddaw or Blencathra. The rooms are clean although the six bedded one I stayed in was on the small side. There is a self catering kitchen that gets busy but you can always take your breakfast onto the balcony or into the...

Thanks for leaving a review of your stay at YHA Keswick. You are right about not being able to bring your own alcohol due to our license, however this does mean we can sell you a lovely bottle or two which you could take up to the have with your own meal.

Great place to stay if you're on a tight budget. Staff were cheerful and nothing seemed to be too much trouble. It's worth knowing there is no lift so you need to be reasonably fit to be accommodated on their 3rd floor. Staff very kindly carried my luggage up for me which must have seemed like going the extra mile,...

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
