Description
If it's dramatic, breath-taking views of mountainous landscapes you're after then YHA Snowdon Pen y Pass is the location for you. Situated at the foot of the magnificent Mount Snowdon, over 1,000ft above sea level, this Youth Hostel is the perfect choice for climbing holidays and budding mountaineers.
 
Having recently undergone a restoration project, this much loved and famed location is now a state of the art accommodation base in the heart of Snowdonia.
 
Added to this is the licensed bar and restaurant where you can re-fuel with a delicious meal and a refreshing drink after a day exploring on the mountains; and the cosy snug social areas where you can relax and share stories with your fellow travellers.
 
The hostel also pays tribute to its famous past - George Mallory stayed here while using Snowdon as a training ground for his ill-fated Everest expedition. The bar is named Mallory's after him and information about the surrounding mountains and Mallory himself can be seen throughout the building.
 
Great for cheap family breaks, this former mountain lodge makes a great base for exploring the local area, walking and activity holidays in Wales.
