Property Description

Totters is situated in the heart of the historic castle town of Caernarfon. Sheltered by the castle's town wall, we are only 30 metres from the shores of the Menai Straits and get to see some fantastic sunsets.

The town not only offers the visitor a huge selection of pubs and restaurants to choose from, but also acts as the perfect base for trips into the Snowdonia National Park. There is very good public transport in and out of the National Park.

The hostel is a 200-year old, five floored town house, which is fully heated with all comforts of a home. The breakfast and kitchen/dining area in the basement is 600 years old! This also acts as a great place to congregate after the pub.

Continental breakfast and all bedding are provided in the overnight charge. We have a common room with TV/video's and games, along with a great choice of CDs to play. There is also a book exchange and a secure left luggage facility.

The bedrooms sleep either 4 or 6 and can be arranged as mixed or single sex dorms. There is also a double penthouse en suite wich can also be arranged as a family room. We are easy going, flexible and WTB approved. View House Rules

    Stayed at this hostel, once last year and once this year, Love Bob and his family. Will 100% be back next year and recommend to friends when they travel to Wales, location great if you like walking and exploring, if you have children there is a excellent skate park round the corner which was pretty awesome and big. Many places for pubs food and drinking which was awesome and location was 20 minutes away from velocity (worlds fastest zipline)

    Staying at Totters was wonderful from start to finish. The location inside the castle walls was superb and offered all the amenities within walking distance. If you’re an avid Pokémon Go player, you’d be happy to know it’s also a pokestop. The free breakfast was always up early and ready to go. Make sure to make this your go to hostel when visiting Caernarfon!

    One of the homiest hostels I’ve ever stayed in. Such a great place to come back to after a day out exploring Snowdonia or the surrounding area. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen was amazing, and the overall atmosphere was great. And we had no trouble ever finding free parking just outside the city wall. Caernarfon was very charming, and they were even filming The Crown while we were there.

    I just needed a cheap, local place to stay for one night and Trotters was such a great find! Available last minute (probably due to the time of year) and exceeded all expectations. The hostel is run by a couple/family so it's got a great homely feel to it. The rooms are clean, comfy and warm AND breakfast is included! Not to mention the fab location right on the water's edge. Cannot recommend enough to travellers and backpackers for value and location!

    This was more like a home than a hostel. Lovely, comfortable bedrooms, and a lovely common room in a central but quiet part of town. A decent continental breakfast and unlimited free tea and coffee along with friendly owners. I booked a dorm but got a room to myself at no extra cost. Maps were provided but maybe could have had a bit more tourist information and leaflets. Also the directions on my booking sheet were a little vague but one of the best hostels I've ever stayed in.
