We came here last year a few days before the devastating floods so felt we had to show our support as it was partly open. The place is warm and welcoming, we struggled to find the temporary entrance in the dark as we didn't see the direction sign. Facilities are limited but they tell you when you book. Members kitchen...

Amazing view of the stream just in front of our room, such a pleasant and nature-like sound especially during night time. Friendly staffs and good kitchenware appliances. I would recommend visitors to stay here for the good service. Thank you YHA Keswick!

I had a great stay there in May 2016. My two friends and I stayed in a shared single sex room. The atmosphere, cleanliness, and comfort of the place made the stay really nice. It was close to a central buss station, had a nice view and was in a beautiful area. The only problem was that the internet didn't...

Thanks for taking the time to review your stay with us earlier this year, adinomel! We're pleased to hear the hostel was to your liking and that you put our prime location to good use. Situated in the centre of Keswick, guests have easy access to the charming market town while at the same time being just a few miles...

Visited Keswick YHA last week. The hostel has been hit very strongly by the floods. The staff are so very helpful and nothing is a bother to them. The ground floor is still out of bounds but they have built a small kitchen in one of the rooms which is quite adequate until the main kitchen is fully up and...

New entrance and ground floor out of action (due to repairs to floods months ago), but this had no detrimental effect on our stay - group has been here for the past few years. Staff as helpful as ever, food just what was required - hot, tasty and sufficiently varied. Rooms worked for students and staff. We will be back.

Thank you for your kind review, and for your patience with us while we refurbish following December's devastating floods. We look forward to welcoming you again in the future - work is due to finish by March 2017 so the hostel should be looking better than ever in time for your next visit!

Helpful staff, clean and comfortable bedroom, excellent shower and toilet facilities. Right on C2C route, but we needed to carry our bikes up temporary steps to the first floor, due to work being carried out on the ground floor after last winter's devastating floods in the area. This also meant that there are no prepared meals available at this time...

Good afternoon Ann and thank you for leaving some feedback on your time at YHA Keswick. As you correctly point out, whilst we repair the damage caused by Storm Desmond, our self-catering-kitchen is slightly limited and we've had to temporarily close our on-site restaurant. We expect these issues to be resolved in time for the new season and we're all...

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. :)

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!
