All of our North Wales courses are based out of our Basecamp Coffi in Llanberis in the heart of Snowdonia National Park. As well as being a great base for climbing and mountaineering there’s lot of options for accommodation to suit all budgets.
It doesn’t get much cheaper than camping! If you’re looking to minimise cost then camping is a great option, there’s a campsite actually in Llanberis itself costing around £8 a night. They also have glamping Yurts if you want a little more comfort
Shared dormitory accommodation gives a little more comfort for a reasonable price. Next door to us Pete’s Eats has shared dormitory bunkbed spaces for £16 a night.
The Youth Hostel in Llanberis is just a little way up from the main street where the campsite is and offers shared dormitory accommodation from £16 a night.4.
The Heights have a number of basic dorm rooms for £17.50 per person.
For a little more luxury I can highly recommend the friendly Dol Peris which has a number of cosy small rooms with a communal kitchen setup, starting from £35 for a single room.
Finally Plas Coch is a lovely and friendly place to stay which also provides a really hearty breakfast included in the price starting from £60 a night.
Airbnb and other options
If none of the above work for you, or they’re already fully booked, then Airbnb has loads more accommodation options to choose from.
There are also numerous B & Bs and hotels in Llanberis to choose from but I can’t give much in the way of personal recommendations I’m afraid.
The Pen-y-Pass Youth Hostel has been done up nicely in recent years and although parking is limited there, it does give the exciting prospect of being easily able to start one of our days from Pen-y-Pass if it suits our plans.
The Snowdon Inn just outside Cwm-y-Glo has been recently renovated and has camping from £8 and bunkhouse space from £17.
