He arrived and has a great welcome, dinner was ok but at 6am while sleeping, music started playing very loudly while they prepared breakfast in the kitchen. We had room 9. Apart from that, all was good!

First; the good stuff. The Hostel is in an amazing location and the cafe space is very smart and welcoming with good wifi. However I had booked shared accommodation and was self-catering and my overall experience was probably the least positive I have had in...More

Tremendous hospitality for our event that passed through. I'm late writing this late, but it's certainly still valid. Our event is the Dragon's Back Race, and our marshals and some needy runners were afforded excellent support despite this being a renowned busy hostel. A thousand...More

About
Description
Located with-in The Snowdonia National Park at 1000ft. above sea-level, and set amongst stunning, jaw-dropping scenery, and with two of Yr Wyddfa – Snowdon Mountain’s - major footpaths – The Pyg Track More and The Miner’s Path starting on our doorstep, YHA Pen-y-Pass is the ideal base from which to climb Snowdon. The famous knife-edge ridge of Crib Goch – The Red Ridge - and the start of the Snowdon Horseshoe dominates the view from our dining room windows. With Tryfan, the Glyders, Moel Shiabod and Y Garn to either side, YHA Pen-y-Pass, not surprisingly, has it’s own place in the UK mountaineering history. Less
