Stayed at this hostel in November having stayed at other YHA's in Langdale and in Wales.
This one is by far the most basic.
It is definitely NOT as bad as people make out on here. The staff are very friendly, the beds are really comfy. Rooms nice and warm There is a large common room upstairs, complete with large self catering kitchen with plenty of hobs and pots and pans. Breakfasts are great. EXCELLENT drying room to dry towels and boots.
Yes there is a few downsides - the rooms are dated and come complete with cobwebs, toilet areas are dated too (The toilets we're been upgraded as we stayed there and areas carpeted. It is also having an upgrade in 2012/2013).
However, as we spent 3 days out in the hills we only used the YHA to eat and sleep in. For what you pay in a YHA, it is more than adequate. Much better than camping.
Ideal location in Patterdale close to Helvellyn. Does the job fine.
