Snowdon Hostel

Hostel Snowdon

Hostelling International

Welcome to our hostel

Set off to tackle Snowdon from this comfortable hostel with a path to the summit starting here. And there are plenty more mountains, lakes and valleys to discover the next day.

Accommodation is in 1-6+ bedded rooms and facilities include self-catering kitchen, internet access/WiFi, games rooms, car parking and evening meals.

It’s in an area steeped in Welsh culture – the village of Beddgelert, Sygun Copper Mine, Caernarfon Castle and the Maritime Museum are all nearby. In summer, swim in the lake from our own beach, then share your experiences with other guests over a tasty meal and drink.

The room had no window which could be opened and it stinked so awful that even people with healthy lungs might fear not to survive the night :-( Since no other room was available we needed to cancel our booking and search for another place to stay. I think it would be fair in this case from hostelling International to refund our payment of 10,58 EUR to the following bank account: IBAN DE61 6005 0101 0007 3634 89, Owner: Juergen Koellner Thank you.

Necesita mejorar el transporte público. En domingo no hay manera de salir de allí ya que no hay buses. Aunque hay un tren muy infrecuente el personal no tenía horarios.

Mike and Megan were very professional and provided personal touch to their service. I am very happy with my stay at snowdonia ranger. I would certainly recommend this hostel to my friends just because of these two people. The upkeep and cleanliness of the place was to a high standard. I wish both of them my best. Regards. Rahul

Excellent accommodation to use as a base for the trips around. Beds could be quite bigger though.
