The staff were lovely and put the 5 of us into a single room with 6 bunk beds so that we didn't need to share with anyone else. The hostel also allowed out dog to stay over as well. We were welcomed into the hostel and left our car there before taking a short walk into town to go on... More

Excellent value for money, very clean in all areas of the accommodation. They offer a great package as part of the stay, we were 12 C2C cyclists and a support driver. In with the price was bed & breakfast, with a packed lunch. Not far from the centre of Keswick, easy walking distance to the restaurants and pubs. Highly recommend... More

Clean bedding, clean room. No fuss place which is exactly what I wanted. In a room for 8 females. Great, everyone was pretty quiet in the room. Showers great and lots of hot water. There were kitchen facilities which I didn't use, but all looked clean. Stayed with my dog, and no problems. Doh towel by the front door to... More

Excellent hostel for overnight stop on the C2C. Bunk beds and towels provided. V. Basic but just what we needed. Good cooked breakfast and a secure bike store. Plenty of parking if driving and only 5 minute walk into the centre of Keswick. What more can I say apart from Trip Adviser insists I fill up the text with 200... More

My daughter and I spent 2 nights in Keswick, we wanted clean and comfortable accommodation on a budget and that's what we got. Staff were excellent and knowledgeable and little touches like free tea and coffee were much appreciated. We really liked Keswick and enjoyed relaxing in the bars and cafes when we weren't climbing the hills and mountains.

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.

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.
