Brilliant location - Good sized, well-equipped kitchen - Was in female shared dorm and this was for six so not too large - Comfortable mattress and pillow with bed-linen provided - There's no car park but free parking close by wasn't difficult to find
A bit more shower pressure please
great location, in centre keswick & view of park and river from room, staff friendly and helpful, food good esp for veggies.
not much sleep - in shared room, 2 of 6 came in late 11.30-12. there was also loud shouting / commotion in corridor 3.30am, i think 2-3 residents.
Price Friendliness of staff Location Food
Friendly and helpful staff.
Well located within easy walking distance of shops and restaurants. Limited hours on-street parking nearby. Recently refurbished to an acceptable standard for hostel accommodation. Shared a triple room with 1 other person and that was comfortable.
Soap dispenser in nearest cloakroom was empty and not refreshed during 3 day stay. Cooked breakfast was not great, but it was cheap at £5 per person per day.
great location,great surroundings,brilliant set up,value for money
Nice views. Good food. Good standard.
Price of food and also very limited choice in breakfast.
Good atmosphere, could have stayed a week
nitpicking but WiFi a bit on and off. but who needs it...no big deal
My first experience of a hostel in England. Very impressed with how it all works, with facilities too.
My sat nav sent me around the back, nothing to do with the hostel...!
- cleanliness - nice and bright room - friendly staff who give a lot of information regarding the Lake District
- location a little off-the-centre, but bus stop to Central Lakes and Penrith near to the YHA.
First stay in a YHA and was very impressed. Location lovely and reception chap very helpful, warm and friendly.
Everything about the YHA was brilliant. Especially brilliant to be offered breakfast at 7.30am so you can leave to get a whole day tramping in. So many places offer breakfast far later than that.
I have to say that I've not only recommended the YHA to family and friends I've joined! I was completely blown away at the level of service, and the specific 'nothing was too much trouble' attitude. We hear about staff being trained to go the extra mile - but really the team at Keswick do! We arrived about 8.28 and was politely asked if we would be eating, then when the they spotted my two young daughters recommended a different dish that wasn't on the menu. Any question was either answered or they informed me they would get back to me (and they did!). We loved it and can't wait to stay at others around the UK on our next visit back. Please do share my comments with YHA.
OK - if I need to be picky. the size of the duvet covers - little short and not very wide!
Close to the city centre, cleanliness
No free wi-fi for non-members YHA and rather expensive (1 pound for 20 minutes or 5 pounds for a day)
A very convenient location, in the centre of Keswick. Bus to Penrith is just 1 min walk way. Clean sheet and plenty of rooms and showers/toilets are appreciated. The best are the staffs, being super helpful in suggesting hiking routes and allowed me to borrow a map, if you don't have any with you. It definitely makes hiking in the mountains much easier.
The prices are a little bit out of my budget for a 6 bed dorm. But it is the price you would expect for Lake district.
The location of the hostel is super. Just a few minutes walk to the beautiful town. The staff are friendly and helpful. The room for six people is neat and good size. It is indeed a room with a view. We can see the river by the side and hear the sound of the running river.
There was an uncomfy smell in our room. Most probably it was from the carpet. Room for chatting and hang around close too early. Residents who want to stay late and chat have nowhere to go inside the hostel.
Very clean. Comfortable. Very cheap accomodation in one the Lake Districts premier locations. Fantastic location. Friendly staff. Cheap beer!!!
Unlike most YHA hostels, this one really enjoys a good location--close to everything: shopping areas, info center, bus station, bars & restaurants. During10-minute walk to Derwentwater, you can indulge yourself in this nicely decorated town. I told the receptionist that I might come back later than reception hours and the guy offered to take my luggage from the reception to my room. He also gave my great advice for my day trip there(to Buttermere and Catbells).
Wifi is not free to non-YHA members (free wifi available in the town info center)& poor cellphone signal. At weekends it charges 3 pounds more (no wifi no breakfast) so I had to go to Ambleside for cheaper accommodation.
it's a great hostel to stay with very friendly staffs
Hot showers. clean bedding and rooms. location in the centre of Keswick
single beds were a little short for someone over 6ft.
The location The shower The room
The veranda upstairs was a bit shabby
location, very close to the lake. Room is clean and tidy. breakfast is ok. most importantly, internet is free......
Great location, basic accommodation but very clean and well kept
My only moan would be that the self catering kitchen wasn't open before 7am. As walkers leaving at 6.20 meant we had to make alternative arrangements for breakfast
Excellent location, clean rooms with very helpful staff. Reception staff had excellent customer service and knowledge of the local area.
The 6 person room was a little small for 6 plus all walking equipment. However I would still stay there again as this had minimum impact and for the price was still good value
