Accommodation in Snowdonia
For courses based in Snowdonia we tend to meet at the Siabod Cafe in Capel Curig each morning. If you don’t have your own transport then choose something that is in Capel Curig itself.
For a pleasant, friendly and not too expensive option we recommend Plas Curig Hostel in Capel Curig. (The old YHA that has been beautifully refurbished)

There are several camp sites in Capel Curig and the Ogwen valley. They are all fairly similar in that they provide basic facilities in farmers fields with a shower (usually coin operated) and a couple of W.C’s.
We tend to use the camp site behind the Youth Hostel in Capel Curig as it is handy for the pub and quieter than most.
