The Youth Hostel was lovely to stay at and was easy to find with good access to Patterdale and surrounding walks. It was fairly busy when we went so parking was a tight squeeze and despite having only three of us, they put us in a dorm room for 8 people! This meant we had loads of room but no...

Hi John, It was lovely to have you volunteering with us again, and what a great week it was! It was so nice to see many parts of the hostel transformed, and just in time for the new season. We couldn't do without the help of our volunteers! Kind Regards, Ellie

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...

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...

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...

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...

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.

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...
