“It is a new, comfortable and well situated hostel.”
Reviewed September 11, 2010

The hostel is next to the town center. It is new, wide and very comfortable. Kitchen, dinner room, lounge and bedrooms are clean and lightning. Staff is very friendly and the hostel has internet facilities. I really reccommend going to Conwy YHA. I have stayed in many YHA hostels in England and Wales and this is one of the best.

We had never been youth hostelling before and we couldn't have picked a better place for our first trip. We took our 15 year old niece and had a brilliant time. The catered food was excellent, the room and bathroom, clean and spacious; the self-catering kitchen extremely well organised and the location brilliant. We can't wait to return and hope all of our next Youth Hostelling experiences are as good as this one!!!

Great place to stay ( just as previous responders have said) Good food.
You can go to the top of the building and have a fantastic view of the town; also great views from dining room.
Some roads a bit narrow, especially through the town wall archway.
One negative was that the duvets made us too warm, lighter weight bedding was needed.

Conwy is really a good place, the city is clean, we spend a good evening at the hostel, the staff is helpful, and the room is clean, the only problem is the ceiling is too thin, we can heard the kids upstairs jumped up and down.

Jack (aged 4) and I had a wonderful stay at Conwy YHA. The hostel is bright, clean and modern and is in a great location, just a few minutes walk from the castle walls. The well-equipped self-catering area and the YHA cafe share an upstairs dining area with fabulous views. We found the shared dining area very sociable as it enabled us to mingle with the other guests. Jack especially liked the "kiddies' corner" with its books and toys - a really nice idea, and again, very sociable (unless you don't like 4 year olds!). The staff are really warm and welcoming, especially Christine, Katy and John the chef. Thank you for looking after us so well, we really enjoyed our stay and we have already highly recommended Conwy YHA to friends and family..

conwy2, Manager at YHA Conwy, responded to this review, November 8, 2010
Great to hear rom you and we are very grateful for your kind words. We were just some how puzzled after such a great review from you. You would not recommend us to your friends and family. Maybe you could let us know what we could do to improve the centre. It is also possible that you may have say "No" when possibly you meant "yes".

Please let us know.

Wanted to stay near the beach at short notice and found the family room rate better than any B&B we could find. As it turned out we couldn't have found somewhere with better views so close to the the great Conway beach (near the marina and much better than Llandudno which are also good). Staff all really friendly, room really clean and comfortable, which made the stay with 2 kids under 4 very pleasant. Easy walking distance from Conway, with station and fantastic castle. We self catered but food restaurant looked and smelt good. Local ales from bar went down very well whilst eating tea looking out at the sea with mountains behind. This YH made a last minute break very easy and fun.

Really quiet hostel, amazing lounge and terrace area with spectacular views. The staff were always very helpful, and the games room was cool. The self-catering kitchen was very useful. The only drawback is that the rooms were way too hot at night.
