Meet the team
Manager recommends: A great base for all kinds of weekend breaks in Wales. Come and walk Cader Idris straight from the hostel front door. See magnificent scenery, sandy beaches, beautiful lakes and very few people in lovely southern Snowdonia. Dolgellau is great for fishing holidays and other activity breaks too. And with large sandy beaches close by in Barmouth, it's great for seaside breaks.
