We arrived as the female manager was leaving and then went straight out so it wasn't until I returned quite late that I made up my bed, to discover that the bottom sheet was less than clean and actually had some horrible brown crusting...

The hostel is very centrally located in lovely Kendal and had good amenities. The best thing about this hostel, however, is the friendly and warm welcome you receive from all staff members. My friend and I felt we were being welcomed into someone's home, not a large hostel. We were only there one night, but still felt as if we... More

Great location in town centre. Easy access to M6. Ideal stop over when travelling to or from Scotland. The staff are friendly and helpful. The building is old and the floors and walls are uneven which add to a quirky visit.

A tired hostel in the Lakes district, Lakes area is beautiful with lots to offer. A lot off good walking and Beautrux Potter is wonderful. A good walk is up "Old Man Coniston". Beautiful area but expensive.

No complaints at all from our group. Staff very friendly and helpful. Free pool table in the lounge. Very central location, close to some very nice pubs, all the shops and restaurants/take aways. Good sized rooms. Very clean showers and toilets.

Really recommend staying here was so lovely, they had a fire, free pool and a cat and a dog so I was easily amused. Great kitchen and dining area as well and great location in the centre of Kendall. Don't stay anywhere else!

I ended up stuck in Kendal one night and the very nice people at Kendal Hostel sorted me out with accommodation even though it was 11pm and after hours. Very homely and I would definitely use again after my stay here.
