First time at this hostel and have to say very impressed, had everything needed for my nights stay, staff were lovely and very welcoming, the dormitories were great loved the separate bunks with the curtains although I was a bit spoilt mind, due to having a room all to my self, ideal location for the Ogwen valley or the llanberis...

Brilliant place. Loads of communal space, even when the hostel was full it never felt crowded. Lovely bathrooms, all very clean and well looked after. Really good location. I will be a regular visitor from now on! Pizza and pint in llanberis nearby was also amazing.

Great location. Good facilities and modern bathrooms with hot showers. Dining options a short walk nearby. Plenty of walks straight from the hostel. Free WiFi but not only in public areas and not in rooms.

Friendly helpful staff, clean fresh and modern, cosy rooms even with our 2 dogs. Location is superb and with 2 pubs within walking distance it's an added bonus after a long day hiking. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will be back as soon as possible.

Fantastic base for exploring Snowdonia, always book this place when heading to the mountains. Extremely comfortable with great facilities and always a good vibe about the place. Love it!! Sits in between a good pub and the great Siabod cafe. Very short drive from Betws y Coed and the Ogwen Valley

What an amazing hostel! Clean, cosy, beautifully decorated and very comfortable. Great value too! Pretty quiet midweek and out of season but the lounge and kitchen / dining areas are pretty roomy. Cafe next door is a top tip for breakfast also

This is a fantastic hostel. Thoughtfully decorated, wonderful facilities and great staff. The owners take a hands on approach to customer care and there is a real eye to detail in terms of presentation of the hostel, customer needs and overall cleanliness. Friendly and inviting from the moment you drive in with cheerful outdoor seating on the veranda through to...

The staff are friendly and very helpful. The bunk beds are comfy, solid and private enough to get a good nights sleep (not like the rickets metal ones in other hostels). Great facilities. Good location

Beautiful hostel, cosy and decorated very tastefully . Stayed with 7other women in the 8bed dorm. Dorm was clean and comfortable and perfect location for walking. Will definitely be back! This didn't feel like a hostel more like a guest house.

“Best to stay away from rooms situated directly above the kitchen area, which can be boisterous in the evening. A relatively minor issue.”
