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. Alternatively, from the village you can catch a train up to the top of Snowdon or along Llyn Padarn, explore the history of the region at the Slate Museum, or visit Electric Mountain.

YHA Snowdon Llanberis is an ideal base for families, individuals and groups of walkers, cyclists and climbers who want easy access to the fantastic mountain trails, rivers, lakes and attractions of Snowdonia. We've recently given a fabulous makeover to many areas of the hostel, so we're now more inviting and comfortable than ever.

FREE Wi-Fi available for all our guests!

The Hostel

The Youth Hostel has a lounge, classroom, dining room and self-catering kitchen. The hostel has really been spruced up recently and our renovated communal areas have never looked better - we've refurbished reception, dining and lounge areas and added new furniture and flooring. Guests can now connect to the Wi-Fi in communal areas too.

We have 50 beds in both private and dorm rooms which are arranged as follows:

1 x 3 bedded en-suite room (double bed and single bunk), 3 x 2 bedded room, 3 x 4 bedded room, 1 x 5 bedded en-suite room (double bed and three single bunks), 1 x 5 bedded room, 1 x 6 bedded en-suite room, 1 x 6 bedded room, 1 x 8 bedded room

Hire the whole place

This hostel is occasionally made available for hire on an exclusive basis. This means that you can have the place to yourself and choose how many of your friends, family, club mates, etc., join you. We allocate availability for exclusive use in blocks, typically up to 90 days in the future. If you are looking for space to stay with us on a normal shared basis, and can’t see any availability three months or more into the future, then this hostel may be being held for Exclusive Hire. You can check availability for Exclusive Hire on our dedicated website, or use our live chat service for more information.
