Nice quiet location, but poor phone signal. Ideal for getting into nature. Plenty of walking trails nearby and staff are good at recommending hikes. I came here to look for a job and the staff were good on suggestions also. More

Hi, I loved that there were all ages at the hostel. Families with babies and young children, students from the field centre, and the rest. Lovely location. Mrs Axtmann More

Situated away from main area, Windermere and 15mins coach ride from Ambleside. Beautiful scenery surrounding. Pros: standard YHA hostel, great security, big dorm room. Cons: kitchen away from main building, without shelter (rains frequently) More

Lovely place in glorious location right in the middle of the Lake District by Windermere Lake. Lovely bar with good and affordable meals. All linen provided. Would come again anytime. More

Clean, comfortable hostel with very friendly and helpful staff. Only comment is that the car park is far too small and perhaps the hostel should cover the cost of parking in the nearby pay&display area for the customers that they cannot accommodate in their car park. The dorm room would More

Hostel is in a really nice place, with fantastic view. Room was clean and nice, beds were comfortable. Staff was kind of bored, and demotivated. Pizza in the restaurant is awful and expensive, better to go to somewhere else to eat. More

Hostel isn't the easiest to get to if you don't have a car. Its a long walk up a hill or a £8 taxi. Hostel it's self was good and very clean More

Kendal Hostel is cutting edge funtctional genius! It is a fund of English Lakes District information, as friendly as the folks at home, parked contentedly amidst England at its very best. Note that the Stagecoach buses manage to probe the English Lakes like a deft fleet of brain surgeons, More

One of the best YHA hostels I've been to in terms of location and staff. We paid for a cooked breakfast (£5), which was good. Note that the hostel does not have its own car park and it would have been good to know about local parking arrangements before we arrived. Some of the More

I was checking out this hostel for a future cycle holiday. It was perfect for my needs. The only drawback was the steps to the main door where I would need to take my bike and paniers. I am sure I will still stay there. More

I never saw any "staff", but the place seemed to be reasonably well-maintained, although it would be nice to have instructions as to how to operate the TV. Security is good, except that the code is the same for all of the rooms, so anyone could go into any of the rooms at any time. It More

Could do with having a pack of cards as there was only 1 game and 1 jigsaw. Also I could not find a hair dryer . I stayed in room 2 and unfortunately I had the worst mattress and spent 2 nights with springs sticking into me. I did not see the warden but I did report a minor problem to More
