This hostel has some nice facilities including a large lounge and dining room. The have free WiFi on site and the location is good for hiking the coast to coast and around Ullswater. They seem understaffed and the overall appearance of the hostel is a bit worn. They are having some renovations done which should help. They do not offer... More

Ellie recently took over running this and her customer service levels are amazing. We turned up 3 hours early and she let us relax in the lounge area or outside until the rooms were ready. We even did our washing while waiting so it was all done before bed. Great breakfast options at the YHA too.

I volunteered at the youth hostel for a week, and it exceeded my every expectation. Generally basic facilities but well worth the price! The main bonus is the attention and care given by the staff. Despite being understaffed and in the middle of construction works, the hostel was extremely efficient and managed to deal with every obstacle. Im starting to... More

The YHA Patterdale was excellent. From booking, checking in to checking out it was a great stay. The staff couldn't be more helpful, and we were greeted in such a friendly way when we arrived. It was great to be able to book the room and food beforehand online. I read quite a few previous reviews about the YHA Patterdale... More

If it wasn't for the fact the place is in need of refurbishment this would have been an 'excellent' review. The staff are very friendly and helpful, the food was very good with an amazing view of the mountains when eating your breakfast. It is apparently rumoured that there are plans to close down this hostel. If this is the... More

This YHA has unfortunately seen better days and needs a lot of money spending on it to bring it up to scratch. On arrival when we opened our bedroom door it smelt strongly of damp, and we discovered none of the windows could be opened (one had the handle removed to prevent this). Being full we were stuck in that... More

We stayed in the Patterdale Youth Hostel after the May bank holiday weekend and enjoyed the lovely 3 course meal with several newly made friends. The fab young manageress was absolutely lovely and couldn't do enough. I strongly recommend this hostel if you're looking for a cheap, clean, friendly stay in the Lakes. The Manageress makes it perfect.:)

I and a couple of friends from work organised a walking weekend to take on the challenge of Helvellyn via Striding Edge in Patterdale but did not want to pay the gasp-inducing prices charged by local B & Bs and hotels. So when Bookings.com threw up YHA Patterdale as a possibility, I was initially sceptical as I like certain basics... More

Went camping at YHA Patterdale. Two adults two children. The scenery was stunning, the wild life amazing. It was only a short walk to Patterdale and Ullswater. The hostel was busy as it was a Bank Holiday weekend but the atmosphere was friendly and everyone was enjoying themselves. The hostel had everything you could want - friendly, helpful staff, clean...
