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.

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.

Une vraie petite auberge de montagne très sympa. Au pied du mont snowdon que nous avons atteint après 4 heures de marche (et autant pour le retour) . Donc on apprécie que l'auberge soit tout près du chemin de randonnée. et tout près aussi de l'arret de bus et de train pour aller sur la cote.

found the overall price to be a bit steep, the basic price is quite high for a rural hostel, with most extras costing around 5 pounds, such an internet, breakfast, etc...
