Great hostel just on the shore of Derwantwater and less than two miles outside Keswick. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and they can even make breakfast, lunch and dinner for you, and sell you beer!

Couldn't get a good nights sleep. Pillows are useless and the foam mattress made my back ache the following day.

Thank you for your comments. Sorry that you couldn't get a good night's sleep. All of our mattresses are different, and we are going to upgrade to better mattresses this winter. We will also be upgrading our pillows this winter as well. Just out of interest, would you prefer a single thick pillow, or 2 thin pillows?

Wonderful hostel. Staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The location was perfect- two minutes walk from the lake and a short walk to Surprise View. The atmosphere was very relaxed. Facilities were great with a fully equipped kitchen and lovely lounge with comfy sofas- both with excellent views. I felt very safe and welcome here.
