This hostel was once the haunt of Victorian climbers - George Mallory of Everest fame once stayed here on his early climbing trips to Wales. With such a prestigious history, it now makes the ideal base to ascend Snowdon and explore the surrounding mountains.

This hostel has recently been extensively refurbished to offer great value accommodation in a stunning position at the foot of Mount Snowdon. Private or dorm rooms are available, many of them en suite.

YHA Snowdon Pen y Pass also benefits from a modern classroom with high tech conference facilities, ideal for group presentations, business conferences and school groups, as well as probably the swankiest self-catering kitchen you've ever seen in a hostel. Free WiFi is available in the hostel.

On site there is a cosy bar, and catering is available if required.

This is a great base for families and friends, as well as youth groups wishing to explore the local area and enjoy the walking, climbing and many other outdoor activities available.
