Property Description

Due to the extensive flood damage in 2016 and the refurbishment works taking place, we are not able to offer any catered meals for families or individual travellers at YHA Keswick until 1st March 2017.

Guests now have access to the new self-catering kitchen, however there is no additional social space whilst we complete the refurbishment. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. Whilst we complete the works at YHA Keswick there is very limited bike storage on-site.

YHA Keswick's superb location on the banks of the river Greta is only minutes from the vibrant town centre. You'll have easy access to walking, climbing, road & mountain biking, watersports and plenty of cultural attractions too.

Combine the great outdoors and walking to your heart's content with a wealth of evening entertainment. Popular YHA Keswick overlooks the river towards the mountains and is minutes from the town's amenities. Try local watersports, hire mountain bikes and if the weather's against you, visit the leisure centre, or the indoor climbing wall.

Limited on street parking available on Station Road, 100m from hostel. There is only limited parking available on Station Road, however there is free parking 400m away.

Unfortunately none of our bedrooms or bathrooms is accessible to modern standards.

    I had a great stay as a solo female traveler here without a car. It is conveniently located near the center of town, but still within walking distance to great hikes and the ferry on the lake. It has good common spaces as well, and a good self-serve kitchen. I loved that it was right by the river and I met friendly people from all walks of life. Good place to have as a base to explore the Lake District.

    One of the nicest hostels I’ve ever stayed at. Beautiful facilities and rooms. New and clean. Bugs in the bathrooms and halls at night but not the hostels fault when windows are open. Only problem was the majority of the staff weren’t that friendly, very mediocre customer service.

    Probably the best hostel I've stayed at value wise in my two month trip. The price is absolutely amazing for the facilities you get and the location is outstanding as well. A bit dead atmosphere wise with a lot of quiet older travellers but not bad for a good nights sleep (apart from the old blokes snoring). Don't bother with the restaurant. The food is decently priced but really flavorless.
