Accommodation at YHA Keswick

Bed in a shared room

Dorms are not currently available. 

Dorm rooms have multiple beds and are shared with other people who may not be travelling together. They are usually more affordable than private rooms as you'll be booking a bed rather than the whole room.

A typical shared dorm room includes bunk beds, a reading light and a storage cupboard for each guest.

Children aged between 12 and 15 can stay in dorm rooms as long as an adult of the same gender accompanies them.

Shared shower and toilet facilities are located near to the room. None of our dorm rooms have en-suite facilities.

Private rooms

Want some privacy? With a private room, you'll be booking the whole room for your stay.

Private rooms typically include a storage cupboard and reading light for each bed, plus a wash hand basin.

Shared shower and toilet facilities are located near to the room.

Private en-suite rooms

For added privacy, relax with your family, friends or by yourself in a private en-suite room.

Private en-suite rooms typically include a storage cupboard and reading light for each bed, plus shower and toilet facilities solely for the people in your room.

Manager recommends: There’s great choice for walking holidays here in the Northern Lakes. Or try climbing Skiddaw, one of the highest mountains in the Lake District, which dominates the view across Fitz Park. Keswick is an excellent centre for all kinds of outdoor activity breaks including water sports, hiking holidays and cycling holidays. Don’t miss the view over Derwentwater in the evening - with a backdrop of the Borrowdale valley, best seen from Friars Crag.
