We planned to have a quick overnight with two days walking at Conwy for my husband's birthday. I used to visit Conwy when very small, so have wanted to return for ages. We weren't disappointed: The hostel itself is down a very private drive, and has simply stunning views. There is even an observation level up an extra flight of stairs. From our room we could see the castle and adjacent bridge, and the restaurant has panoramic views. All rooms were very clean and the staff were lovely - helpful and cheery (even when my son spilled milk 3 times at the breakfast buffet). There were two added bonuses: that we picked the same weekend as Gwledd Conwy Feast, so we altered our plans to have a shorter walk on the Saturday and spent the afternoon watching great live music and eating local food; we also found The Albion pub a short walk away, which is a local gem run as a joint venture between 4 local breweries.
The only downside, as ever, with Conwy was the lack of pub food or cafes after 5pm. Ate in at The Schooner fish and chip shop - best I've eaten.

Our family really enjoyed our short break at YHA Conwy. The family room was great and the good self catering kitchen, dining room and play area made meal times very easy and relaxed. The children enjoyed playing in the garden. Views are amazing.

Room Tip: Family rooms are great

The hostel is fantastic - the facilities are great and the staff, especially the managers, are just the best. They were so helpful and assisted me to fix up a problem - went well out of their way too. The town is beautiful and well worth a visit even if you only have a short time tomspend in Wales as I did. I highly recommend a stay at Conwy Youth Hostel.

The hostel in Conwy is located on top of a hill above the city, easy to reach by car and not too far by foot. It is a big modern building with clean facilities and great views of the city from the terrace. The staff were friendly and helpful.
However, compared to other hostels it was quite pricey and we only stayed there because we didn't have much of a choice...

I stayed at Conwy YHA whilst rallying around LLandudno, Its a great base for the North Welsh Forests and easy to get too.

Rooms were very clean and the staff were VERY helpful. Menu looked good and at a good price, Sadly I was not able to eat there due to the nature of my stay but wished i had as i only ended up with aa KFC.

Would recommend staying there and will again

I had stayed at a YHA hostel in Edinburgh, Scotland back in 2011, so while planning my visit to Wales in Oct 2013, it was my first choice. I was travelling from London late in the evening. When I informed the hostel that I would be checking in late, they made sure someone stayed back beyond the regular reception time to make sure I wasn't stranded in a strange town. The facilities were excellent. The rooms were comfortable and staff friendly.
