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...

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.

Stayed here over the easter weekend for 3 nights. Lovely clean room on 3rd floor. All staff are very welcoming and help in any way they can. 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...

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...

Thank you for leaving such a lovely review Dave, we were very happy to host you. It's great to hear good feedback on our facilities as a lot of them are brand new this season - the new reception, bar/restaurant area and self-catering kitchen are all recent additions, as are the en-suite rooms with balconies looking out onto Latrigg, Skiddaw...

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...

Arrived not sure what to expect after reading about the building work going on and apart from the noise sometimes had a pleasant 2 night stay although I overdid the walking and found the climb to the room on top floor a struggle. Found the staff pleasant and breakfast and lunch were good value for money and hopefully I will...

Thank you for the feedback Mike; all the staff empathise with you about the climb up to the top floor - it keeps us in good shape though and the views from the third floor out onto Skiddaw and Causey Pike are worth the effort! We're glad you found the breakfast to be of good value - we do believe...

Great location in the centre of Keswick. It has a brand new self catering kitchen. Friendly staff. The place was kept clean. There is still a lot of building work going on, which is a bit disruptive. There is some building noise during the day. But the builders/decorators etc. seemed friendly and the site manager was asking me what I...
