Housed in a Grade II listed Victorian building and refurbished extensively in 2017 our hostel provides dorm and private accommodation for individuals groups and families.

We are located at the very heart of the town, just 50m from the UNESCO designated Caernarfon Castle and less than a minute on foot to the Menai Strait.

Spiral up the staircase to your room and you’ll find sunlight and sea air breezing in through beautiful sash windows. Each room has its own charm, with quirky and original handmade features for you to discover.

Fantastic venue, would recommend to friends and family, 5* from us!

Our bespoke bunk beds have been specially handcrafted from reclaimed wood with a good night’s sleep in mind.

We have 3x 8 bed dorms, a private room and a family unit. The accommodation is spread over 3 floors with toilet / washroom / shower facilities on each floor.

A help-yourself breakfast accompanied by locally roasted filter coffee is provided for our residents each morning, if you prefer espresso based coffee these can be purchased throughout the day. We do not have self-catering facilities, however, Caernarfon offers a wide range of eating options from budget take-away to award winning restaurants. Our coffee / cake shop is open throughout the day and we don’t mind our residents bringing take-away back to eat in the cafe area.

Dogs are welcome in the cafe and can be accomodated in some hostel rooms with a small fee, please contact us if you wish to add a dog to your reservation.

Our friendly, accommodating and knowledgeable staff are always on hand for tourist information and recommendations. Wifi is free for residents.
