    The hostel is centrally located in Kendal and makes an excellent stop over for a group of saddle weary cyclists. Basic & simple accommodation but value for money and the staff provide a friendly welcome

    Really enjoyed our stay here. We were a large group doing a charity event and the staff leading up to and on the day of our stay were extremely helpful. Loved the feel of the hostel and the location was ideal. Would stay here again...More

    Extremely solid. Bed comfy, good atmosphere inside and out of hostel. Superb full english. Unusually good cooking facilities, as more and more hostels don't have them. Central and next to well-stocked supermarket.

    It is well located. Tony is extremely kind and helpful. The shared rooms are really cheap but also comfortable and clean. The hostel has good facilities, such as bike storage, etc. I totally recommend it if you want a nice place to stay in Kendal.
