I stayed here for 3 nights in one of the 4-bed dorms with ensuite. Upon arrival I discovered that wonderful old-school YHA friendly charm from all of the staff that is the reason I keep returning to YHAs. It's an easy 10 minute walk just outside the town walls from the railway station, by which I mean it's easy to... More

Stayed here on a Saturday, whilst visiting the Conwy Feast. The YHS is at the top of a relatively steep hill but is only a few minutes walk from the town centre. We had a twin room (bunks) with own loo, for £35. Room was very basic but great value for the price, hostel had some excellent facilities (bar, games... More

I enjoyed my stay here immensely. I was really wanting certain foods to eat and low and behold they were served in the dining room! Praise the Lord! The staff were wonderful and helpful. The maltese chocolate rabbits were delicious! I can't find them here in Canada! The view in the dining room was lovely - it is the biggest... More

We had a very good stay at this hostel. We are seniors (70 & 80 yrs) and having a lift saved us for more important walking. However, it was the only hostel of 5 we stayed in that I had to climb into an upper bunk. Not a problem, just mentioning it. The views from our room and the observation... More

Spacious well positioned hostel. One of the best I have stayed at. I rate as a hostel. It's not a luxury hotel, so would not suit everyone, but excellent for short visits. Very easy to get to Anglesey, Snowdon etc

On the plus side the views from the hostel are wonderful, the staff are welcoming and it is a short walk into Conwy. I also had a good night sleep on the solid with clean bedding bunk bed, On the negative side the room shower absolutely stank. (Use the hall showers). The served dinner is horrible, dry and tasteless. Better... More

This is the sixth time we've stayed at this magnificently situated hostel and, as usual, we weren't disappointed. It is perfect for sixth form geographers - we took 32 students this time. All the staff are friendly and welcoming. The food is very good and even the packed lunches were fully eaten (just about) this year. We have already booked... More

This hostel is on the hill, only 5 minutes walk from the small Conwy station. We found the staff fantastic - really welcoming, genuine and friendly. The first room unfortunately the toilet was broken but the staff swapped us into a larger and (nicer) room. Be warned though - in summer when the weather is warmer, some of the rooms... More

YHA Conwy is situated just outside of town of Conwy in an idyllic setting. From the canteen there are spectacular views of Llandudno, Conwy bay and the surrounding Welsh hills. It is a peaceful setting that offers bunk accommodation in single sex rooms or rooms to yourself. The hostel offers good meals and superb breakfasts as well as a self... More

Great location, friendly and helpful staff. I was a little disappointed at the standard of cleanliness; the Bunk frames were dusty, as was the bathroom. There were no croissants for breakfast as advertised. Overall though, a great hostel with a lovely modern spacious feel and of course great views!
