It was wonderful to see the hostel being used by lots of different groups and individuals - architecture degree students, scouts, children with learning difficulties, people who travel for work, and explorers like me from all over the world. The staff were immediately in tune with the needs and preferences of their guests and I felt encouraged, not laughed at,... More

We have been here before and had a good experience, and this was more of the same. After a warm welcome we found the rooms clean, well fitted out (for a YHA property) and warm.

Great hostel ..... neat, clean, purpose built. Offers evening meals, breakfasts and a bar. Warm, clean and fantastic location. The town is World Heritage listed and rightly so ...... incredible ! Walled town, can walk the walls. Smallest house in UK, castle, quaint town, beautiful. Would definitely stay here again.

The room was clean, lovely and very affordable! We especially enjoyed the beautiful views and peaceful atmosphere. It would have been nice to have some small kind of breakfast included and free wi-fi, but given how inexpensive the room was, I can hardly complain.

Literally 10 minutes walk from the start/finish, perfect. The hostel is in an elevated position, so walking back up the hill a little more taxing than walking down for the start but really no big deal. You have to be out by 10.00 am but you can return for a wash in the cloakroom . We tried to persuade the... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Spacious modern hostel with views of Conwy's Castle, medieval walls and harbour. Conwy Youth Hostel is an ideal base for exploring North Wales. A great location for backpackers, families, youth organization and anyone wanting easy access to the coastal resorts of Llandudno and the Snowdonia National park. The hostel is situated on hill just outside the town walls of Conwy in large grounds with a summer house, barbecue and picnic area. There are spectacular views from the roof terrace of the ancient medieval town of Conwy and the North Wales coastline. The town centre with its pubs, tea shops and local attractions is just a 10 minute walk away. The Conwy Castle is well worth a visit and the quayside is great for sitting back and watching the yachts and fishing boats go by. Guest Rooms – Spacious, light, clean with security lockers and all room fully en-suite. Bar – Relax tasting the Local beer lounging in our new Bar or admire the view from the patio/terrace overlooking the Snowdonia National Park. Outside – Plenty of room for a game of football in our large garden, enjoy the peace and quiet of the summerhouse or eat al fresco in our picnic and BBQ areas. Common areas – Relax and enjoy the views from our observation lounge and roof terrace, chill out in front of the TV with the kids in our family area, challenge someone to a game of pool or table football in the games room or if you just want peace and quiet sit and read your favourite book in our quiet lounge. Meals – All our meals are delicious and great value for money. If after a hard days sightseeing you don’t feel like cooking enjoy one of our evening meal specialties such as Welsh lamb casserole or Lemon and Herb salmon. We even have a special children’s menu with old favourites like Fish Fingers and Chips and Bangers and Mash. ... more   less
