    Snowdonia in a small group
    Had an Amazing trip with two friends! walked up to the top of Snowdon and then Climbed back down via Crib Goch! The Facilities are very good and the YHA Pen Y Pass and the location is second to none! the only downside is that there was no hot water for showers but to be honest it was quite refreshing after a long walk. Worth the visit and would definitely visit again.

    Small room for 6 people but the beds are super comfy Bar lacked a decent choice of drinks (unless you like bottled real ale) , no draft beers but the food was very good value

    Good6.0
    The room (26) has a generator/pump in the wall. The noise through the night is the same as a moped next to you, so no sleep. I reported the issue on checkout. The actual place was fantastic & staff great. Stay, but AVOID ROOM 26!
