Deep in the beautiful mountain scenery of North Wales, YHA Snowdon Llanberis is located on the doorstep of Snowdonia National Park and is a ten minute walk from Llanberis High Street. From the hostel you can walk up Snowdon, or from the village you can catch a train up to the top of Snowdon. Explore the history of the region at the Slate Museum, or visit Electric Mountain.
We've recently given a fabulous makeover to many areas of the hostel, so we're now more inviting and comfortable than ever.
