      Difficulty to rate amenities because there isn’t much there, but providing you read the description of the hostel properly, you won’t be disappointed. Lovely clean room, comfy bed, hot showers and clean kitchen. Helpful chap on reception recommended local pub where I had an amazing meal! Overall, a cute little place but very basic. My first stay in a YHA and pleasantly surprised.

      Quiet little gem

      Excellent location for walking and seeing the genuine Welsh countryside and mountains. Not having internet was interesting as planning had to be done with real physical maps. Nice and quiet.
