Great location for C2C. Old style hostel with everything looking a bit well used, great example of 1960's styling. Great staff and good food. Lots of space in the lounges and room to sit and read or watch TV. communal showers and loos. Large car park. Located on narrow road with little warning so drive with care.

Hostel is very clean but self service kitchen again having very old utensils which are in very bad conditions. Rooms, bathroom and toilettes are very clean. There is no barbecue option at this place and... More

Good value for the 40 pounds a night it costs to stay here. Rooms are clean, though you do have to make and strip down the beds yourself. There's plenty of storage space for luggage and also a sink in the room + tea/coffee setup. They only have common hall bathrooms but they were spotlessly clean when we stayed there.... More

Stayed here with partner whilst completing Coast to Coast. We arrived drenched, tired and unable to move without considerable pain! We were warmly greeted, able to book dinner, breakfast and packed lunches immediately and shown to our room. The room was small but very clean and had a sink and plenty of storage/hanging space. We were able to wash and... More

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

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.
