Three of used this as a base to get our bikes up Mount Snowdon. Other hostels are nearer but were full. We stayed in a 5 person en-suite room. Some areas had been refurbished or repainted and some needed doing. Small kitchen for the number of people who could stay there. Great views, lovely building, welcoming and friendly staff.

On the first night of our stay (21/10/16) the fire alarm was activated at about 23:00 and continued well into the early hours of the morning for at least 90 minutes. We were forced to congregate outside in the freezing cold while guests attempted to silence it as there were no staff available at that hour. My friend and I... More

What a beautiful location! A magical place located at the foot of Mt. Snowdon. A lake across the roadway from the Hostel, forests and mountains everywhere you looked, and a historical main house with local artifacts only aided in enchanting me. Restful and quiet, there is no internet or cell service here. Hiking trails are everywhere, and a bus service... More

This is the second time I've stayed here. Before I stayed in the building called the coach house which is next to the car park about a minute walk away from the main building. I had a much better experience this time as I find the main building is a lot cleaner with better, more comfier beds.. And warmer. The... More

Large group of Eastern Europeans drinking in rooms above ours until 5am. At 7 am their wives got up to make even more noise clearing up. Same group let off explosive devices/ flares in the woods at night. YHA staff seemed unconcerned/ unable to manage them. If this Youth Hostel is allowing large groups like this, then please beware when... More

I really enjoyed my stay at this hostel. It is relatively small so has a more homely and less institutional feel than the larger hostels. The facilities were all clean and comfortable. I catered for myself and found the kitchen to be clean and well equipped. It is very well situated for walks in the area including, of course, walks... More

Sitting in the dining room looking at a stunning view of lake and hills was a real treat. The food was good (we had breakfasts and suppers). The staff were happy, friendly and helpful. I recommend this hostel unreservedly.

Instayed for one night on a Saturday in a twin room. This is a clean hostel in a stunning location which I would recommend. It represents great value with friendly staff. It is however a bit run down in terms of decor and it would be useful if the hostel was somehow able to provide an Internet facility. The self... More

The essence of staying in a Youth Hostel is right here. Homely facilities in a historic house. We loved every aspect of our stay. Would recommend and certainly will return. Just hope we get a view from Snowden summit next time.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Experience Snowdonia at its most serene in this early Victorian mansion in the heart of the National Park. Set in 40 acres of wooded grounds with stunning views over Llyn Gwynant and Snowdon, this is the perfect escape from the rat race for families and individuals alike. Walkers will be at home here, with plenty of low and high level routes all around. Don’t miss the classic Watkin path up Snowdon, which begins less than a mile from the hostel and leads you into incredible mountain scenery - just don’t forget your camera. ... more   less
