Bryn Gwynant YHA is a little tired and lackinging in homely touches. The accommodation while well placed to access Snowdon and the surrounding area is showing its age and needs refreshing. The staff are friendly and helpful.

Beautiful scenery, friendly & helpful staff, lovely old building and perfectly situated in a quiet location ideal for hiking in Snowdonia. Plus a Drying Room that drys soaking wet boots over night. What more could you want.

About
Description
Experience Snowdonia at its most serene in this early Victorian mansion in the heart of the National Park. Set in 40 acres of wooded grounds with stunning views over Llyn Gwynant and Snowdon, this is the perfect More escape from the rat race for families and individuals alike. Walkers will be at home here, with plenty of low and high level routes all around. Don’t miss the classic Watkin path up Snowdon, which begins less than a mile from the hostel and leads you into incredible mountain scenery - just don’t forget your camera. Less

There is a bus stop right outside the hostel, but I don't know if the bus goes to Bangor or not. There are certainly regular buses going around though.
