One of the best hostels I've stayed in. Everything is spick and span, great facilities. Well-heated and nice warm bedding! Wifi worked well for me. Friendly and helpful owners. Good continental breakfast, free tea and coffee throughout the day. Historic building inside the town walls makes for a great base to explore Caernarfon. Being so small a town, all the...

Totters was my last stop on my trip around North Wales. It is a great hostel, one of the best ones in the area (admittedly there are not a lot of non YHA hostels in Wales). It is very lovely with a nice sitting area and a large space downstairs in the basement to hangout if you are in a...

.....and much more! Lovely Hostel in a lovely house in a great town. We had a shared room and space in the yard to park our motorcycles. The owner made us very welcome. We will be back no doubt. Massive clean and well equipped kitchen rounded the experience off.

I cycled from Holyhead to Totters and was very pleased to find a great hostel in such a central location. There was no-on other than a fellow guest to let me in and show me around but it's a lovely lace to stay. Well equipped with a lounge, dining room and full kitchen, they even include a self serve breakfast....

What a fantastic hostel this is, right on the dock of Caernafon and right in the town centre. Rooms were comfortable and a decent size. It may present issues to anyone who needs accessibility as the stairs were quite steep to the basement dining area but all in all very good.

Excellent reception by a very friendly woman, keen to show me round and advise where to eat. A surprisingly comfy bed, all made up beautifully (just what was needed after a day on a mountain). Breakfast is laid out ready for any time you need it, a real selection. Location is right inside the old city walls, next to the...
