Surrounded by some of the highest mountains in Snowdonia National Park, Yr Hafod is the ideal base to explore this stunning area of North Wales. Our indoor hostel is a beautiful stone building which stands at the head of the Nant Ffrancon Valley, and the centre offers stunning views of the mountains. Sleeping up to 32 people across four rooms, the hostel also features a carpeted lounge area to relax in after a busy day trekking in the mountains. The hostel contains two washroom areas with toilets and showers, a large kitchen and dining room. The hostel also features central heating, a drying room for wet clothes, a secure covered foyer with hooks for hanging wet waterproofs and racks for boots. There is also a pay phone.
Yr-Hafod has good road access and parking for up to 10 vehicles.
