Our room had a view of snowdon. There are great walks straight from the Youth Hostel including a lesser used route to the top of Snowdon. Friendly Staff and good facilities make this a great place to stay when holidaying in the area.

First time in a YHA hostel and we were really happy. The interior is a little dated but it doesn't matter as it is all spotlessly clean and looked after. The staff were wonderful; really friendly and welcoming. The breakfast and dinner options were very good value - £8.50 for a 3 course dinner. We stayed in a tripple room... More

Went to Snowdon for a weekend with my brother who booked this place as our accommodation.

As an Outdoors professional I have stayed here on a number of occasions and have always felt very much at home here. The hostel is just on the outskirts of town up a narrow, dark lane but it was as warm and welcoming as ever on this occasion.

The hostel was as expected with good cooking facilities and plenty of space. The staff were very friendly and Janet was extremely helpful. We left our boots in the drying room, and she was very accommodating in ensuring there was someone onsite so I could fetch them the following day.
