Liked: This hostel is good in the sense that the staff is helpful, and the breakfast is good.

Disliked: But the bad thing is, it is located quite high on the mountain which makes me quite hard to climb up onto it. Moreover, the fee is quite high regarding its high location and both wifi and breakfast not included.

Liked: Very cheap out of season and beautiful dining hall (for the view). Nice facilites and very friendly staff. Location is a bit up the hill, but also enjoys a nice view on Conwy.

Disliked: A bit quiet. Probably not a place to meet other people (there are still the friendly Welsh to get to know over a pint in Conwy though).

Liked: It has had a major revamp since I was last here 3 years ago and now for the most part must be one of the best hostels in Britain. The rooms are some of the best Ive seen with well designed bunks, new fittings and all ensuited. The eatery is not backpacker cheap but is good value with the food generously portioned. The views from the place are great.

Disliked: In this day and age for such a well appointed and modern hostel to not only charge for wifi... but EIGHT POUNDS?! It is down right disgusting. You can get a MONTH of wifi with any telco for under 20 quid so there is simply no excuse for this fee. Needless to say I went offline for the night. Ruined what would otherwise be a near perfect score. Didnt look at the kitchen but will on the next visit.
