Great Value
Great location and we were lucky to park right outside - probably because of COVID (Keswick was very quiet.) Fantastic value for a great location. Comfy beds and friendly staff.

All the staff are amazing with the current times
We felt really safe especially with the coronavirus. We booked a shower slot and another member of the hostel used it instead. I went downstairs to the reception and dealt with it straight away. They cleaned another shower block and let us know when it was clean. Just felt like they were doing an amazing job under the current circumstances and to make the visitors feel safe.
