MY wife and myself stayed for three night,we were made feel very welcome the food was spot on and our room was warm and cosy all you need when you return from walks.So glad it,s to remain open,it would have been such a shame to lose such a jewel of a hostel.

A group of eight of us stayed here for three nights for an exploring and adventure getaway in the Lake District. It wasn't the easiest place to find, but that may have been due to tired minds after a long drive from London. But we found it, which is the important thing. We arrived quite late in the evening, and... More

We had a great time staying at YHA Patterdale. The bus stop was just right in front of the hostel. We got the room for 8 people but there were only 2-3 power sockets in the room. Upstairs, you can chill on the sofa, watch TV, play games and have foods there. There's also a kitchen where everybody can use... More

A group of us (adults and teenage children) stayed here for one night prior to climbing Helvellyn the following day. I was pleasantly surprised at the standard of comfort in the bedrooms and the lounge area - really comfortable. The bathrooms were nice and clean with plenty of warm water and the pre-booked breakfast lovely. For comfort and price in... More

I travel to the Lakes often either to do some walking or cycling but this was the first time I'd stayed over in order to bag a few more Wainwrights. Great facilities and really friendly staff as well as a warm inviting atmosphere all inside a fantastic building. Patterdale has everything you should need but Glendridding is only a short... More

YHA Patterdale is a relaxed friendly and basic place to stay, where you will meet relaxed friendly staff and friendly like minded people staying there. like all the other YHA's I have stayed at I cannot fault the place I would prefer stay in this YHA rather than some posh hotel.

It was pretty good before but now is even better. in the last week or so the toilets and lounge have been refurbished and a TV now in the lounge. Has Wifi too. Recommended hostel in an excellent walking area. My only complaint would be the toilets are now not uni sex any more and the Gents is a 80... More

I was very relieved to find this hostel has been much improved. I have stayed a few times before and I was worried YHA were just leaving it to deteriorate and then sell it off. However, considerable effort and investment has now been made to really freshen the place up and give it a new lease of life, and it... More

This hostel feels a bit Scandinavian with its wood panelling inside. Large and modern dining and lounge rooms. The dorm rooms were huge and the beds are built into little wooden units-very cosy looking! Self-catering kitchen well equipped with utensils and crockery Modern bathrooms, with a very warm powerful shower- just the tonic after a day of walking. Few minutes... More

A group of nine of us have just returned from a couple of nights in the lakes and decided to stay in this hostel. It is in a beautiful location, being so close to Ullswater.
