There is a restaurant offering full meal options, free Wi-Fi, games room, dedicated meeting room, plus delightful and secure outdoor space to use up excess energy.

We pride ourselves on offering a flexible option for schools and groups whatever the age and whatever the objective of your stay.

For school groups YHA Conwy has a great deal to offer.  Younger school groups will love our fully inclusive educational linked packages. Our Multi-Activity Package combines YHA-led activities with more adventurous off-site sessions delivered by our accredited partners Pro-Active Adventure. All real experiences at great value for money prices.

Ideal for groups wanting to lead their own trip, the hostel  is only a short walk from the historic town of Conwy, complete with its Edwardian castle and city walls, and medieval Aberconwy House.  Further afield Snowdonia is a short hop away, and makes a popular location for an amazing field study trip. Plus groups on self-led stays can also add on half-day and full-day bolt-on activities through YHA or Pro-Active Adventure. It’s the ideal way to fill free time or add a little more adventure into your visit.

With fantastic hiking, mountain biking, watersports, spectacular coastlines and Conwy RSPB all at hand, whatever your reason for staying at YHA Conwy we will have something that’s perfect your group.
