Our family room on the first floor was chilly and damp. The beds were relatively comfortable at least. But truthfully, clean windows and stripping old damp wallpaper would have made the difference between a good YH and an awesome one. Struggled a little with wireless but got there in the end.
We are a family of 4 with 2 boys. We booked the YH for its proximity to Snowdon, which didn't disappoint us. Also a stones throw away from a beautiful ice-cold lake which we swum, in wetsuits. We enjoyed using the clean, well stocked and organised kitchen. The lounge was inviting, friendly, and warm, with fellow YH's reading, researching, playing cards etc. We were lucky to have many families there at the same time, allowing the kids to make friends and entertain themselves. We definitely made good use of the drying room. Showers were clean and hot, great after a dip in the lake.
