This is Snowdonia’s Original Bunkhouse, started by me in 1966, now an Independent Hostel, a base for your own activities. There are various grades of accommodation with helpful flexibility, and all you need is your own sleeping bag – and food, since it’s totally self-catering. Each section is equipped for cooking and dining. Our water comes from the Carneddau mountains -take some home in your poly bottle.
It's warm and homely, and we usually become good friends with our customers. I keep it as a “ A Centre of Lo-Tech Pragmatism” . It reflects my attitude to life – keep it simple, so long as it works. Here it really does – come and see!
As a retired instructor and mountain rescue leader I’m usually around for a chat - and advice, if you want it. There are good pubs and eating places nearby. Llanberis about 3 miles away, by road, cycle track, or cross country paths. Your own drink brought in is fine, if it goes with responsible behaviour. (I take a drop, too.)
