We have stayed in Llwyn Celyn Bach in May 2012 - it was a flying visit only so we had somewhere to put our heads down whilst marching up and down Snowdon in preparation for the Three Peaks Challenge.
Due to work commitment we have arrived very late - it was past 10pm. The owner of the campsite was only concerned with getting our tents up as it was raining and pitch black. We have payed later on and neither the lack of payment or late arrival were a problem.
The showers and toliets are very clean though you do have to pay to use the shower. Each time one of us visited they were spotless though (not an easy task with rain pouring and muddy trails).
As the website warns you, the campsite is located on a farm so expect some noise early in the morning - this is usual on a farm and most people do not mind for the price, as the overnight stay has only cost us £10 - always check the website for the prices.
We didn't find that other campers were a problem - everyone seemed polite and friendly, but I suppose you can never guarantee company!
The only negative really is that the field we stayed in was on a hill - makes sleeping in a tent tricky but we were so tired we managed to cope and sleep anyway.
Would definitely recommend if you are in need of a cheap, overnight stay - the owners are lovely and for the price, you will struggle to find anywhere at such close proximity to Snowdon paths (about 10 minute walk to Llanberis path).
