Perfect location to start climbing the Snowdon (Snowdon Ranger Path). Great vegetarian and vegan options for breakfast. The gentleman at the reception was very kind and accommodating, as we came almost five hours later than planned. Also gave very helpful information regarding parking and let us stay parked on the free hostel's spots even after we checked out. Overall a pleasant experience, and location is hard to beat (not only proximity to Snowdon but also to Llyn Cwellyn, which is exceptionally clear and quite enjoyable to soak in after hiking).
A bit of feet stink from previous guests.
Location good - hostel as described. Staff friendly and helpful. Food good, what I would have expected. Rooms clean and well laid out.
Had one night in a shared dorm. The dorm was very clean and well laid out 10/10. However a roommate in the dorm didn't relock dorm on return to room during the night. Maybe there should be a policy on locking dorm doors. I didn't feel unsafe but had a child with me and would have preferred had she locked the door when we were sleeping. Had a lovely twin room on our second night but the occupants of the room next door were talking fairly loudly until late and their voices carried through the wall. Not the fault of the staff or hostel of course but was very annoying and stopped us from getting to sleep.
Excellent staff, clean toilets and shower, lovely breakfast.
Room smelt of damp, velux window was really black with rust/mould and rust and dirt behind beds on pipes and radiator - just needs a good deep clean and lick of paint. Room smelt very musty which wasn’t pleasant.
the staff was fantastic, very helpful
food could be serve until later hours in the evening and earlier in the mornings
Perfect for those walking up Snowdon, close to Rhyd ddu and the rangers path. The hostel was Very clean. The bed sheets were immaculately clean and ironed. The showers, toilets and bathrooms were very clean the whole time we were there. The water was also nice and warm. The hostel very quiet. The kitchen facility was well equipped for you to make your own food but the breakfast was also nice. The staff were friendly and helpful about the area. There is a lovely village about a 15 minute drive from the hostel with lovely scenery, pubs and restaurants (in this village you can also get signal and wifi). The lake opposite the hostel is also absolutely beautiful. Lovely place to sit during the evening. Parking here is also good with spaces directly opposite the hostel and a large car park 1 minute away. The hostel does have WiFi but it only works on the ground floor.
With a stay at YHA Snowdon Ranger - Hostel in Caernarfon, you'll be on a lake, within a 15-minute drive of Caernarfon Castle and Rhyd Ddu Path. The front desk is staffed during limited hours. Free self parking is available onsite.
