About YHA Keswick
Combine outdoor activity breaks and walking holidays with a wealth of evening entertainment. For accommodation in Keswick, this popular hostel overlooks the river towards the mountains but is only minutes from the town’s amenities. There's all sorts of activities on the doorstep including watersports, mountain bike hire for cycling holidays and if the weather’s against you, the leisure centre or indoor climbing wall. If it's a real climbing holiday or hiking holiday you're after, rise to the challenge of climbing Skiddaw.
After a busy day, you'll be ready to put your feet up and indulge in some delicious food and refreshing drinks in our licensed Rocky River Diner. This American-style eatery has everything you'd associate with our friends across the pond, including checked table cloths and generous portions of USA-style grub.
YHA members can enjoy free Wi-Fi in social areas at YHA Keswick!
