This much-loved location sits at the foot of Mount Snowdon, giving school trips and adventure lovers a head start up the mountain. YHA Snowdon Pen-y-Pass boasts refurbished social spaces and a room that can be used as a games room or meeting room. We’ve also got high tech conference and educational facilities, so we’re an ideal choice for business groups and adventurous field trips.
What we lack in mobile signal and internet, we make up in fabulous décor and comfy places to relax. Groups can spread out in our stylish lounge and dining room, enjoy a drink from the licensed bar, and enjoy delicious group catering options including breakfast, a packed lunch and evening meal.
Obviously, we’re the go-to location for groups climbing Snowdon, and we’ll advise you on hiking routes like Crib Goch, the Miners Track and the Pyg. Keen climbers are also spoilt for choice with Cromlech Boulders and the Snowdon Horseshoe nearby. Or sign up for an amazing adventure with Plas-y-Brenin for a week of rock climbing, abseiling or thrilling watersports. Pretty epic we say.
