I have stayed at most at Youth Hostels in the Lake District and hadnt stayed at Patterdale for years so was excited to here about the changes.
On arrival there was zero parking was crazy due to lots of 4 x 4 parked badly taking up two spaces. Had to wait for the wardens to finish snogging before I got booked in which added to my mad mood af ther car park farce. Couldnt really see the revamp people had talked about in the room all the pipe work covers were off which didnt seem to safe. Bed were comfy with clean bedding.
Evening meal was good members kitchen was good but lots of dishes left unwashed but thats down to lazy people staying there.
The toilet facilities were very good and the hostel was clean and neat.
But its in a brilliant location and after a long day in the hills all you want is a hot shower and a good meal.
