The Kendal Hostel is extremely welcoming. Its facilities are great and is in an ideal location for accessing Kendal. I highly reccomend staying here and I shall be doing so again next time I am in Kendal.

This is a fabulous play to stay. Very well maintained hostel. It's right in the town centre but still quirky and full of character. Very clean and comfortable. Good value for money. Friendly and helpful owner.
