This is the place to go if you want good food and good sleep! Breakfast and dinner was excellent, and we looked forward to the dinner menu every day. Portions were generous, and meals prepared by Carolyn and her team were delicious! (In comparison, moving on to other YHAs was a disappointment thereafter). The staff (Julianne, Gareth, Ben, James, and Hayley Louise, among others) were very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and had a good view (they all do). However, if you're on the big side, the shower is a bit small and requires strategic movement. The hostel is on top of a hill, and has a fantastic view of Conwy and Llandudno. It's a bit of a hike up from town, but taxis fares are very reasonable (£2.80 to town, £4 to Llandudno Junction train station). And the hostel has a lift!

Conwy Youth Hostel is light, bright, clean, and has extremely friendly and very helpful staff. Its location is very convenient to the castle and town of Conwy, and has excellent views! There is room to spread out throughout the hostel, and a good TV also! The kitchen is great to cook in, having lots of space and appliances to use. I would recommend it to anyone. Can't beat the price for a comfortable dorm room.

We had a good half term stay in Conwy YHA. The views from the dining room were beautiful and the good was good and the drink offer was a nice touch. The kids enjoyed the games room and the comfortable lounge with a good selection of beers! The surrounding area was lovely with plenty to do and see.

Good location with great views all around. Well equipped kitchen and dining room with a view. Excellent games room with pool table, board games, giant connect 4 etc to keep children happy. Staff friendly & helpful (as is the norm with YHA). Rooms spartan but comfortable enough. Easily enough to do in the area for a week or more.

We had a good stay at Conwy where the staff were friendly and welcoming. The hostel has superb views from the dining room. The food was fine, though not exceptional, and good value particularly with the free drink offer. There was lots of tourist information available but not the local cycle routes / walks advice that is normally available at hostels. Perhaps that reflects the nature of the area which has plenty paid attractions for families. This was clearly an excellent hostel for young families but also for couples like ourselves.

Our family had a great time at Conwy. The shared spaces are light and spacious. A good games room and plenty of areas to relax. The self catering kitchen is large and well equipped - and kept clean by centre staff despite large numbers of guests over the weekend. The dining room has the most amazing views across the estuary and up to the mountain range. Centre staff are very helpful and more than happy to help out with an inquiry. Local ales are stocked in the bar. The family room was a good size with an excellent shower in the ensuite. Our only negative comment is that the bedroom floor was in need of a more thorough vacuum cleaning session prior to our arrival.

Room Tip: just ask when booking. the centre staff are really happy to advise and help.
