Spent an excellent evening and slept peacefully here at the Yha. Wonderful breakfast with stunning views brought the sunny morning into focus, highly recommended especially as the cost was so reasonable. I would stay here again.

A good hostal, clean and with good facilities. It is a little far from the centre but you have a nice view, specially in the terrace they have on the top floor. The breakfast is a tipical hostal breakfast and they charge you GPB 5.75. Hostal Recomended

This Youth Hostel is on the edge of the walled town of Conwy, itself a beautiful place to explore. From the dining room there are fab views of the Conwy Estuary in one direction and Snowdonia in the other - it's even better from the observatory lounge on the top of the building. The staff are really friendly and helpful,...

I travel extensively and in the last two years have probably stayed at over 60 different places in Europe, including 30+ in the UK and Ireland. This was unreservedly my worst experience in many years. I've stayed at youth hostels before, although in private rooms.

Dear Trisha, I am really sorry to read that your recent stay at YHA Conwy was not up to your expectations. Understandably, our hostel gets extremely busy with families during half term school holidays. As there is high demand during the busiest part of the autumn season, the slightly higher than expected price reflects this. We always try to do...

Very good hostel wth good facilities. I especially liked the small room at the top of the building just to relax in. Good outdoor areas to eat. Comfortable dormitories although a bit crowded with an extra bed in.

Lovely views from the hostel which is in a great location, easy walking distance from the town centre. Clean, comfortable and serves a great breakfast! For £15 per night (breakfast extra) as a non-member, it is excellent value for money!

Spacious modern hostel with views of Conwy's Castle, medieval walls and harbour. Conwy Youth Hostel is an ideal base for exploring North Wales. A great location for backpackers, families, youth organization and anyone wanting easy access to the coastal resorts of Llandudno and the Snowdonia National park. The hostel is situated on hill just outside the town walls of Conwy in large grounds with a summer house, barbecue and picnic area. There are spectacular views from the roof terrace of the ancient medieval town of Conwy and the North Wales coastline. The town centre with its pubs, tea shops and local attractions is just a 10 minute walk away. The Conwy Castle is well worth a visit and the quayside is great for sitting back and watching the yachts and fishing boats go by. Guest Rooms – Spacious, light, clean with security lockers and all room fully en-suite. Bar – Relax tasting the Local beer lounging in our new Bar or admire the view from the patio/terrace overlooking the Snowdonia National Park. Outside – Plenty of room for a game of football in our large garden, enjoy the peace and quiet of the summerhouse or eat al fresco in our picnic and BBQ areas. Common areas – Relax and enjoy the views from our observation lounge and roof terrace, chill out in front of the TV with the kids in our family area, challenge someone to a game of pool or table football in the games room or if you just want peace and quiet sit and read your favourite book in our quiet lounge. Meals – All our meals are delicious and great value for money. If after a hard days sightseeing you don’t feel like cooking enjoy one of our evening meal specialties such as Welsh lamb casserole or Lemon and Herb salmon. We even have a special children’s menu with old favourites like Fish Fingers and Chips and Bangers and Mash. ... more   less
