Here is a selection of accommodation options for all budgets here in Snowdonia.

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)
