Social dining a highlight

The 3-course meals YHA Keswick serves as part of the YHA supper club programme is a favourite of many guests, with everyone who books sitting down together to dine on homemade, tasty fare.

Rooms are a great deal

You will find the rooms to be clean, warm, many of them very spacious and the showers to have good pressure — just what you need after a long day exploring the Lake District National Park.

Located in a special spot

Guests have mentioned that the views of the river running past YHA Keswick and the location's mountain backdrop make it something special Its close proximity to the lake, shops, nightlife and some classic walking tracks also make this a great option.

Negative Reviews

Some rooms a little cramped
