Wir waren im "Coachhouse" untergebracht. Im Zimmer war nicht mal pro Bett ein Haken. Die Dachrinne war verrottet und die ganze Nacht trommelte der Regen auf ein Glasvordach. Sehr hellhörig und z.T. defekte Sanitäreinrichtungen. Feucht und kalt, erfreulicherweise wurde abends mal kurz geheizt. Schlechtestes Juhe-Zimmer was wir je in Mitteleuropa hatten. Einziger Lichtblick war eine gut eingerichtete Self-Catering-Küche.

I really enjoyed my stay. The library was nice,and the facilities were good. Not having wifi, however, was very stressful because I am not a UK resident and did not have a cell phone data plan. Thankfully, I had a car and was able to drive somewhere with wifi. Otherwise, I would have been screwed, so please get wifi! The location was great, and the hostel itself was absolutely beautiful.

Wonderful unique location for exploring Snowdonia. It really does look like the pictures! The chef and the young guy working here are super friendly, such a shame one of the other staff members was kind of a jerk.
