A great place to stay with either family or friends, well equipped, friendly staff and good amenities including a good pub and cafe within 5 minutes walk in either direction. In total a great base for any activities in Snowdonia with only a short drive to all the important peaks, we definitely intend to return in the future!

The Hostel was absolutely incredible, we was not expecting it to be so modern and fresh. Compared to other Hostels we have stayed in this was truly refreshing. Homan so helpful even at 11pm when we got there late! Telling us the best routes and where to go. The beds were extremely comfy, clean, more to the standards of a...

An outstanding place to stay for visits in and around Snowdonia National Park. This is a top class Hostel with a very well deserved 5 Star rating. The facilities are second to none and with an extremely friendly surrounding and homely atmosphere makes this a memorable place to stay and leaving you with a feeling of wanting to come back.

This is only a hostel in the loosest sense - forget any memories of rickety metal bunk beds and canteen style eating areas - it is a beautiful place to stay and only a ten minute drive from the pen y pass parking area for the start of some of the Snowdon routes. The receptionist while we were there was...

Lovely hostel, well run. Super kitchen facilities and really liked the communal dining area. It's all got a farrow and ball feel. Rooms are superb, I loved the private bunk beds. Great that dogs are allowed, they added to the atmosphere. Ate at the pub a few mins walk away, book of you want to go - Bryn Tyrch Inn.

Great hostel right where you want it. Perfect for Snowdon, Tryfan and the Glyders. Comfortable, clean, secure and friendly. The kitchen is great for cooking up that post climb chilli and the beds are first class.

Very comfortable, with all the facilities you'll need, and a few clever extra touches (e.g. curtained individual bunks with night-light and plug). Couple of pubs serving good food and beer, plus two very good cafes, all within walking distance, and easy access to Siabod, the Glyders and the Carnedds.

A truly great find. We'll be back. Wonderful location and conveniently placed for a great walking weekend, a full English Breakfast at Café Siabod (1min walk left) and supper at the Bryn Tyrch Inn (one minute walk right). Worth making a reservation for the latter especially. Super friendly receptionist/manager who went out of her way, and more, to help after...

Honestly, I was slightly nervous about a "five star hostel". Do hostels have any business being posh? Will I be scolded for mud or sneered at for ancient anoraks? In a word no. The hostel is a very thoughtful mix of the hardwearing and the opulent, with lounge furnishings like a Moroccan souk, but the flagstone floor and hardwood stairs...
