Great hostel, the location is perfect, 2 min walk from town and shops etc. the staff are very handy, i had never been to the area before but they lent me a map and compass and recommended walks i could go on as a first timer. i would stay again
Easy to find (keswick ain't that big) right by a river. It's an odd thing but every time I stay at a 'youth' hostel, I'm the youngest by a decade or more and I'm 30! floor boards are very squeaky which makes sleeping difficult when early hikers are up. Staff were just okay, didn't get the full intro to the town with map and tips that I've grown accustomed to. All that said, I'd love to come back to lakes district and I'd happily stay here again.
The hostel is in a great location, near to the town centre and all the outdoor activities that the lake district offers. Beds are very comfortable, clean toilets and showers etc. However this hostel isn't really a "youth" hostel. People of all ages staying here and the majority are here for hiking etc so most people have early rises. Not a place for hanging out, meeting people and drinking etc. However lots of pubs within a 5 min walk and no curfew - just try not to wake the other angry guests!
