Meeting like minded people. Friendly staff.
Poor food quality for vegitarians
Having stayed in stratford upon Avon YHA I was hoping Pen y Pass would be just as good and it was just as comfortable, although sleep was interrupted by a fire alarm
Sadly the food didn't match Stratford; the chicken curry lacked chicken (plenty of corn kernels) and the portion size was small- I hoovered up every last grain of rice! A light is required outside the barn- it is very difficult to see.
Right opposite Snowdon. Great base.
Yha pen y pass Snowdon in situated right next to some beautiful walking trails. The stay was lovely as all the needs of guests were thought of. Excellent value for money.
Staff are helpful and into outdoor pursuits so they are genuinely interested in your hiking plans. Great atmosphere. Lovely food; sensibly priced drinks. Kids loved the board games on offer. Quadruple room very comfortable: room facilities and furnishings vibrant and fun. A little noise from doors opening and closing elsewhere prior to 11.30pm. Otherwise a great night's sleep. Enjoyed cooking breakfast in the spacious self-catering kitchen. And you are in the heart of Snowdonia.
The proximity to the road - not much YHA could do about that! Just watch your step!
Curtesy of the staff, basic but clean and comfortable rooms. Excellent food.. Basically.. All of it..
Can't fault it at all..
location friendly and helpful staff
The location is dramatic, the history awe inspiring.
Stay was too short.
Able to grab a shower after walking the hill next day, good stuff
Excellent location for access to Snowden and surrounding areas. Facilities were better than expected. Friendly staff and willing to advise on walks and places to go.
Food was basic and choice on menu limited although value for money and tasty. Maybe introduce a special. Furnishings good but could be more comfortable after a days walking.
Friendly helpfull staff.lovely clean everywhere. Beautiful location.
No phone signal, very noisy people above us kept us awake. Small self catering dinng room. Not enough parking spaces.
Nice comfortable beds - kids loved the bunk beds and didn't want to leave!!
No WI-FI . mobile phones no working.
Good service & friendly, cosy atmosphere. Good value for money especially food - enjoyed 3 course evening meal & breakfast. Clean, compact private room. Perfect location for access to snowdon mountain walks, main reason for stay.
Noise levels and temperature at night (v hot & stuffy) disturbed an otherwise comfortable night's sleep. Parking v limited - parked on pay & display opposite which meant renewing ticket before 7:30am.

No Wifi - but it's nice to have a break from no communication!
Everything, I was going to the summit of Snowdon and the start of two of the trails were literally just across the road from the YHA Pen-Y-Pass, good food, good service, excellent hygiene and unbeatable prices.
Fantastic locarion right next to snowdon. The staff were very accomadating as we arrived very latr due to completion of the three peaks.
There was a mix up with the rooms, therefore two of us ended up sharing with a family and the other three were in another room, instead of being in the same room. Apart from that everything was lovely.
Excellent end point for the three peak challenge, great facilities and recently underwent an expensive refurbishment. The restaurant and Bar (only bottles) were also excellent presenting very good value and choice. would definetly stay again. Staff could not have been more helpful. This YHA was better than a large proportion of hotels out there!
Friendly atmosphere and picturesque location
No mobile phone signal. When the parking is full at the hostel car park you may have to park in the snowdon car park which is opposite the hostel. However this car park is very expensive.
Location superb. Staff friendly and helpful. Good communal rooms with games. There was limited on site parking which we used.
The total price for dinner bed and breakfast was quite high bearing in mind we had to make our own bed and no tea/coffee in the room. However there is nothing really to compare it to for the location so this is an observation rather than a criticism.
Nothing it's probably the best hostel iv stayed in.
Everything was just perfect! The location was brilliant for exploring Snowdonia! Had a wonderful experience!
Some wierd smell in self catering kitchen!
The location was right next to one of the more popular trails up to Mt. Snowdon. The facilities was complete with bar/ restaurant/ living and sitting areas for you to play cards and drink beers with friends. Great way to relax and chill with friends after a hike.
Parking was a bit tricky during the day if you're just arriving but was fine since we had a friend who wasn't hiking and took the car away to visit surrounding areas before returning and parking after hiking hours.
