Top tips for finding Keswick hostel deals

  • Families looking for cost-effective Keswick hostels that are clean, comfortable and safe need look no further than Yha Keswick. It has heated and carpeted family rooms, a games room and offers bicycle hire. There’s an on-site restaurant as well as a lounge and bar area. You’ll also appreciate the laundry service when you’re travelling with your kids, and you can bring board games back to your room to keep them occupied in the evenings. There are some interesting local attractions in the near vicinity of the hostel: Keswick Museum and Art Gallery is about 50 yards from the hostel, and the quirky Cumberland Pencil Museum is about 600 yards away.
  • If you’re a serious backpacker hiking your way through the Lake District, Stybeck Farm Shephards Hut will be just what you’re looking for. While not, strictly speaking, one of the Keswick hostels, it offers the same level of budget accommodation with all the amenities you need to be self-sufficient. There’s a small, equipped kitchenette and the cottage is heated, which you’ll really appreciate in winter. You’ll be nicely remote and off the grid, and if you need to go into the centre of Keswick itself, it’s only about 5 miles away. To some, this may sound like roughing it, but for others, it will be exactly what they’re after.
  • On the other end of the spectrum, for a more upmarket hostel experience than the norm, you can book through KAYAK at Derwentwater Independent Hostel. It’s one of the more desirable Keswick hostels, located on the town’s lakefront. You’ll easily be able to reach some of the town’s natural attractions, like Lodore Falls and Hope Park, and Theatre By The Lake is also nearby. The hostel has a restaurant, a coffee shop and a lounge bar; you can also cater for yourself in the shared kitchen. Laundry facilities are available, as is a communal games room, where you can play ping pong, pool and the like.
  • If you’re looking for a cheap hostel in Keswick, you should consider going during the low season. You’ll generally find lower-priced hostels in Keswick in October and August.
  • Hostel room prices vary depending on many factors but you’ll likely find the best hostel deals in Keswick if you stay on a Sunday. The most expensive day for hostel bookings is Friday.
