5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

great place to stay before your climb to the peak! the route is right outside of the hostel. great overall stay and the breakfast in the morning was good, the only thing i would say is can get a little cold in the winter months and the noise by passing cars can be unsettling, apart from that the place was a great stay, thanks to all the staff.

Pen Y Pass Winter Holiday

Pen Y Pass hostel was a great place to stay for a few days. Staff were very helpful and everywhere was clean and tidy and it's location couldn't be better for access to the Pyg Track and The Miners track. It was busy at the weekend but quiet during the week although this was in Winter, so I'd think once the season starts, its probably booked solid.
