Really nice and welcoming for our first stay in Snowdonia. loved the real coal fire, great kitchen facilities (shame some lazy people didn't do their washing up but that's not your fault!), comfortable rooms and plenty of shower rooms that were always clean.

Running on casual backpacking principles to keep costs down, but with added extras (amazing duvets!), bunks with curtains, modern, cosy facilities, shared kitchen, fireplace and nearby options if you don't feel like cooking. Verandah overlooking the river, in the heart of Snowdownia.

Our room was nicely furnished and the communal spaces are very welcoming and well thought out. We got lots of really helpful information from Homan who was working on the front desk and his advice really made our weekend. There is a great cafe next door with friendly staff and a nice pub the other way. It's in a great...

This is a great luxury hostel situated in a great location for walking in the mountains of Snowdonia and with great views. We've stayed there twice and the staff were very helpful and accommodating. There is a good gastro pub on one side and a good cafe the other.

We've been using this place for an annual gathering for walking and beers for a few years. Always a warm welcome and always a good stay. Really stylish, really comfortable beds and more privacy than you might anticipate.
