          Tucked away off the A5 main road through tourist honeypot of Betws-y-Coed, The Vagabond is a quiet, clean and well run Bunkhouse. Breakfasts can be provided (extra cost) or the usual DIY rules apply.. as well as Evening Meals, pre-booking is required. This particular Bunkhouse,...More

          This review needs to be put into context: we paid £19 pp for one night, so the Hilton is not what we were promised or expected. However, my friend and I both left feeling pretty underwhelmed. Arrived to find that the dry room, where we...More
