Patterdale Hostel

Hostel Patterdale

Hostelling International

Welcome to our hostel

Lively, retro and full of character, this quietly located Scandinavian style building is ideal for exploring the surrounding ridges and fells. The energetic will want to scale Helvellyn or try mountain biking and rock climbing. Those after a relaxing break can chill out on the Ullswater steamers. YHA Patterdale is a great place for a party and Irish Ceilidhs, salsa weekends, and special meals can all be organised for you. Plenty of toys, games and DVDs are available to keep children entertained and there are pubs in the village and more cafes and restaurants in nearby Glenridding. Home-cooked meals are available. All are welcome but please contact us before booking if you are bringing a child under five.

I liked the location of this hostel it felt like a country home in the woods. It was a very small town and the hostel was just a short walk to the available pub and restaurant. It was a very enjoyable place to stay for my husband and I.

L'auberge est très bien située, proche de sentiers de randonnée et l'arrêt de bus est au pied de l'auberge. Le petit déjeuner est délicieux, les sanitaires spacieux et le cadre est superbe: vue sur la rivière et les montagnes.

Lack of sufficient showers and toilets. Large pot hole in parking lot needs to be filled. Very dangerous for cars. Good breakfast and lunch packs.
