Only stayed for the one night and was a convenient place to stay being in the town centre. Guess I have moved on a bit from my old travelling days and prefer a bit more luxury now but it was perfectly nice for our short stay.

Kendal hostel is always my first choice when making a solo trip to the area. The staff are warm welcoming and nothing is ever too much. i normally stay in the female dorms and the beds are comfy, always tidy and the hostel is very well maintained. The location is perfect, with you being on the brewery art centre site...
