This hostel is in a brilliant position for walkers, as previous entries mention. We were a party of forty and Glen, the warden, could not have been more friendly and helpful, particularly when an unexpected problem arose with one of our students. The rest of the staff were equally helpful, both before arrival with organisation, and during our stay. Personnel... More

Having done a Lakes point to point Lake District walking trip over Easter 2013 we decided to follow the same route this year so used Patterdale YHA as the first stop. To my great surprise it was a marked improvement on last year. The food hall had been moved around & the chap on duty was so helpful & friendly.... More

I have just returned from a weekend walking the Eastern Fells, and Patterdale YHA is the place to be. Interesting architecture, lots of space, stunning location and extremely welcoming staff. This will be a regular for our Lake District walking.

We stayed here as part of our field trip to the lake district. It is in an ideal location for hiking or any other outdoor activity. The staff are very welcoming and helpful. The food is also very good, served in a nicely decorated dining area. The common room boasted lots of space, seating and literature about the local area.... More

We visited in February 2014 as a walking group of 20+. We found the hostel very good with an excellent lounge and dining area and always a must, plenty of hot water and an effective drying room..Had a minor makeover since my last visit and wash rooms and toilets were improved over what I remembered. The staff couldn't have been... More

I visited their with hiking group. Room was not cleaned with any standard. This hostel is now close most of the time and only opened if other hostels in Lake districts are full. I would not recommend at all unless this is the LAST option and that too only single.

Book in! I was here for a few days running in and around Ullswater early November. The hostel is basic but cosy. I booked a lovely small private room (bunk beds and a sink) which was just down the corridor from the well appointed bathroom (with excellent much needed hot showers!). Breakfast was very good and there is a self... More

Location wise, this hostel takes some beating.... lots of great walking from the door and a pub just down the road, I didn't need to move my car all week. As many other reviews have said the place has a feeling of neglect which is such a shame. My dorm room wasnt damp, but the carpet was worn and dirty.... More

Tried for months to secure lodging for a one night stay on a Friday evening in Patterdale. Have previously stayed at the Old Water View B & B next door, which is excellent. All and sundry were full, only availability was this YHA. Given the previous reviews, reluctantly booked. I am sad to report that most of what I have... More

Last of 4 in 6 bed dorm so I had to kip on top bunk - don't like that. Shower very low and basic - not very comfortable. Other guests complained some rooms damp but ours was OK. Food edible. Staff friendly. Bike shed secure. Didn't use drying room. Recommendation for hostellers staying here is to eat out or self... More
