This is Snowdonia’s Original Bunkhouse, that I started in 1966. It became an Outdoor Pursuits Centre but now I run it an Independent Hostel, a base where everybody arranges their own activities. There are various grades of accommodation with helpful flexibility, and all you need is your own kit and sleeping bag – and food, since it’s totally self-catering. Each of the sections is fully equipped for cooking and eating. As a renowned “Centre of Lo-Tech Pragmatism” it reflects my attitude to life – keep it simple, so long as it works. Here it really does – come and see!
As a retired instructor I’m usually around for a chat and advice. There are good pubs and eating places nearby. Llanberis about 3 mile away, by road, cycle track, or lovely cross country paths. Your own drink brought in is fine, if it goes with responsible behaviour. (I take a drop, too.)
