    Very pleased with the location of the hostel. Good clean facilities. Didn't realise that I could get a permit, so ended up paying for car parking twice.

    I work on the railway and stayed in hotels all over the UK, but never stayed in a hostel. I booked this place for its location as I was climbing crib goch, after popping in here for a coffee last year after the 3 peaks I already knew the staff were friendly and the atmosphere was great, however I was blown away buy the rooms and facilities, the place was spotless, and the rooms clean and spacious. I’d definitely recommend it and I will be back in the future. 10/10

    Great place to stay to climb snowdon from! Only slightly more expensive than a campsite and seen as the weather is so unpredictable here you'll be glad to have a solid roof over your head when the the rain is pouring and the wind is blowing others tents down. Really helpful staff found us a place to park even when all official car parks were full. Arrive early morning to get a parking space, or in the afternoon when others have finished their walk.

    I had originally booked in with the other YHA in Snowdonia, but they had double booked me and found more a bed with this hostel. It is about a 15 minute drive to the base of Snowdon, but there is a beautiful hike/lake just behind that is worth it! The reception was so lovely and extremely helpful and she alone made up for the mishap! The hostel is spacious and the kitchen is massive with everything you'd need

    This hostel is in a great location for hiking up the Pyg and/or Miners' track as the start is literally over the road! The hostel's car park is more like a lay by so most guests park in the car park across the road instead, so even though you do have to pay for it the hostel give you a permit so it's cheaper than if you paid directly to the car park. Other than that... friendly staff, clean facilities, good food and drinks menu, shared kitchen and eating area. We had a great time!
