THIS IS WHAT WE CALL A PROPER BUNKHOUSE!!
6 of us stayed between Christmas and New Year for a walking holiday in Snowdonia. Location is excellent, easy walking into town and easy trip to any of the Snowdon walking routes.
The first night of our stay we all headed into town for food and drinks. When we got back a few of us fancied a nightcap and so text the manager and he came back to the bunkhouse and opened the bar (we have stayed in loads of hostels and this is the only one where we have had an offer like this so we weren't going to leave without putting it to the test). Well, one drink turned into another and the next thing we knew the bar was full and the beer was flowing, watch out though, the chilli vodka has a right kick on it.
There were families and ladies staying last week and we never had any issues with using the showers or the drying room and as it rained almost non stop everyone returned to the bunkhouse wet so the showers were in almost constant use.
The second night we decided to stay at the bunkhouse as we were all tired from the walk but still up for a party!! The shepherds pie with veg and wedgies was fit and enough to fill 6 growing lads. James behind the bar should be on commission as we had more to drink than we intended but as one of the other parties staying said "We are on our holidays!!"
From the minute we arrived to the second we left we were made very welcome and all 6 of us have said we will definitely return so watch out The Vagabond, we'll be BACK!
