Good hostel, near to railway station, clean and organised , friendly staff. Hostel per se is nice, however Kendal is a very quiet area while other districts such as Windermere and Grasmere are more beautiful. Also, price is on the higher end for the services provided. One advice, always keep bus timetable with you and plan your local travel before... More

Lovely quirky place, with lots of character. Amazing breakfast and packed lunch. Definitely opt for those. My dorm had quite a few young, backpacker student chaps who needed a lot less sleep than me on my cycle tour. I would certainly get a private room next time.

We arrived to a warm reception, free pool table and the wifi code. This hostel has a very cosy feel to it and the staff were extremely pleasant and informative. The location was perfect for our group as we had a lot of bars and restaurants on the doorstep to choose from. Our room and all the shared areas were... More

Stayed at hostel as much cheaper alternative to motel. Very central in Kendal but parking is available nearby. Nicely decorated, clean and a pleasant atmosphere. Dorms had plenty of space. Helpful and friendly staff.

Really friendly, welcoming staff. Nothing was too much trouble. Had time-tables & local knowledge at hand regarding all local services & transportation. Even ordered taxi for us on our departure. Great atmosphere!

The private room i stayed in had a bunk-bed window and sink for only £25 per night but the walls are very thin making it difficult to sleep at night when its noisy. Great location center of town and very helpful and friendly staff and atmosphere.

We have stayed in a lot of Hostels, but this one was just ok. Every floor board creaked and the place is in need of repair. It does what it says on the tin but not one of the better ones we have stayed in.

This definitely is one of my favorite hostels that I have stayed in! The room is much better and tidier than I expected. The public facilities are clean without any weird odor. Mattress are soft. Had a really nice and deep sleep on it. The site is not far from either railway station or bus station. The most important thing... More
