    Can't fault the hostel and the friendly and helpful staff. The only downside I experienced was that the car park across the road began getting arrivals by 2 am and from then on there was considerable noise from car doors banging, people chatting, dogs barking etc which kept me awake. This might be a consideration for other light sleepers. The car park was full by about 4.30 am and then there was a steady stream of cars and minibuses driving around trying find a space. Other rooms may be quieter.

    Way nicer than the Snowdon ranger! And in a better location on the other side of The mountain, with easy access to way more of the Snowdon routes. Car park is expensive, small and always full though - but you can get cheaper parking for your whole stay from hostel for £5 (£10 deposit for permit) waaay cheaper that paying at the meter. Clean, cosy rooms, happy pleasant staff, excellent self catering facilities, hot shower, clean nice beds, I also had an excellent view from my dorm 👌🏻

    Everything was great! I wish the staff at check in had been a bit friendlier and more personable, but that’s just personal preference. The facilities were cozy. Someone had taken our pillows before we checked in and the staff gave us replacements quickly. Breakfast was delicious!

    The perfect spot if you're looking to climb Snowdon ❤️ it's right at the start of the PYG and Miner trails. There were two lockers in the room I stayed in (bring your own lock) for 6 beds so that's the only reason I rated security 4. The parking is the car park across the road which is usually £10 a day but you can get a permit from the hostel for £5 for your stay (plus £10 refundable deposit). Loved this hostel and will probably stay here again to redo the hike!

    The stay was perfectly moderate. My biggest bug bear was that it wasn't made clear on the website that towels would not be supplied. This should be made very clear so people know to bring their own! Other than that, the stay was reasonable.

    Excellent base for outdoor activities, especially if you plan to climb up Snowdon. Clean. Friendly staff. Restaurant and self catering both available which was nice. Hot tip: if going by public transport, the S2 from Llanberis or Betws-y-coed is your best bet. Have £2 on you.

    Booked this hostel the day I was going to arrive, but then saw in the fine print that I needed to book it before 12 on the day before or something like that. So I called the hostel to make sure my reservation would be honored and the front desk people had no idea what I was talking about. I didn’t trust that they would honor my reservation so I stayed in another place in town. This place is in the middle of nowhere so if they didn’t accept me I’d have nowhere else to go....
