I really love this spot as its tranquil and a great launchpad to adventures on the fells. The staff are very helpful and were able to suggest a nice circular run up to place fell on my first night. I ran from the hostel to Helvellyn via striding edge and back via St Sunday Crag on the second day. All...

Huge lounge with very comfy sofas and beautiful views of the mountains. No communal meals. Top bunk bed a bit challenging to get in and out of .. feel it would...

Nice medium size hostel, very large dining area and an adjacent largish lounge are on the first floor while all the rooms are on the ground floor. My dormitory was very spacious, much more so than many I have been into. All the bunks were of the wooden structure variety, built against the walls, and are much nicer than the...

Enjoyed my stay at the Patterdale YHA on route walking the Coast to coast. Recently renovated. Comfortable beds in a room with a beautiful view of a stream and the fell I'd climb the next day. Lovely comfortable living room, super breakfast next morning, and friendly staff. Particularly liked the nice touch of fresh flowers in vases in living room...

Great 3 nights accommodation, good breakfast, very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Good quality showers, toilets and kitchen. Good big dining area and lounge. Great location for exploring the Ullswater area. Camping area is in lovely location: only slight shame is that you get some road noise but very minimal at night.

Hi Emily, really glad you enjoyed your camping stay with us here. We think it's a great location and it's always nice to know that guests think so too! Being off the main road means we're easy to get to but there is some vehicle noise. Luckily, as it's the lake district, it's never particularly busy and it's nice and...

Great location, big communal areas, good drying room, spacious dormitories. Loads of walks on the doorstep. Nice breakfast and just 5 minutes from the local pub and stores. Friendly people running the place. It's not a 5 star hotel, its a youth hostel, but a great way of seeing the outdoors cheaply.

A quirky architectural lodge hidden on the outskirts of the village. Perfectly functional, if a little damp rooms. Shared bathrooms in decent YHA condition. And a decent meal upstairs in the impressive lounge. Really helpful staff on hand, and can make you a great packed lunch if requested.

Patterdale used to be the cinderella of all the Lakeland YHAs - but now it has been comfortably refurbished throughout. We really enjoyed our stay, very good breakfast and comfortable beds. It rained into one of the toilets during the night so got a bit flooded - but did not detract from the weekend.
