Welcome to our hostel

Welcome to YHA Snowdon Pen-Y-Pass, the proud winners of the HI Sustainability Fund 2013. Hand picked by travellers for their low carbon footprint and high quality facilities, this is a hostel with a big seal of environmental approval.

The Snowdon base camp - once the haunt of famed Victorian climbers. Pen-y-Pass YHA is 1,000ft above sea level and at the start of the ascent of Snowdon. A great base to experience the stunning landscape and many activities that Snowdonia has to offer. Local attractions include the Welsh Slate Museum and Caernarfon Castle.

This former mountain lodge is ideally placed for the waymarked trails up Snowdon, as well as being a great base to explore the wilder side of Snowdonia. Fantastic full breakfasts, tasty packed lunches, delicious evening meals and a licensed bar. Accommodation is in 2-6+ bedded rooms and facilities include self-catering kitchen, games room and evening meals.

Eine Jugendherberge wie ein Hotel! Hervorragende Atmosphäre und Angebote für Essen. Die Lage direkt unterhalb des Snowden ist gerade für Wanderer verlockend. Auch für Motorradfahrer sind die kurvenreichen Straßen ansprechend, wenn denn das Wetter mitspielt. Landschaftlich mit den Hochalpen vergleichbar, aber bei 360 müNN ist das Klima mild und statt Dohlen fliegen dort Möwen. Das Meer ist gerade mal 20 km entfernt und auch die Burgen von Edward I.
