YHA Idwal Cottage - Hostel, Bangor
Good hostel, great for mountain break.
The hostel was ok. Although we booked a two person room it was small. The shape was the main issue, long and thin limited the useful floor space and made it a little awkward with bags and gear. The kitchen and dining areas were good. Slightly larger lounge would have been great. No wifi, which isnt a massive issue on an escape break but the area also has almost no signal, and YHA have been running a marketing campaign lately about how all their hostels now have free wifi!
