Cwm Pennant Hostel

Cwm Pennant Hostel Information Page!


Cwm Pennant Hostel is a 56 bed independent hostel set within 1000m² of grounds with fantastic views of the Cwm Pennant valley and Moel Hebog. Located on the edge of Snowdonia National Park, the hostel is just 4 miles from Porthmadog and offers relaxed accommodation for families, individuals and groups. This is a seriously stunning part of the UK and Cwm Pennant Hostel is run by a friendly team, keen for you to make the most of your stay. Hike, climb and mountain bike around Snowdonia National Park to absorb all of its natural beauty. If you don’t fancy the climb up Mount Snowdon, there’s always the Mountain Railway which slowly climbs to the summit of Wales’ highest peak.

  • Disabled access: there are disabled facilities onsite, including access to a ground floor room, ramps and a disabled shower room.
  • Security: this is a very safe area and our CCTV make it even more so. Inside the building, we have lockers to keep your valuables secure (keys available from reception).
  • Staying connected: there is no mobile signal here, which is an attraction for some of our regular customers who can finally switch their phones off but wifi is available most of the common areas in the main building. Don’t try to download large files at dinner time though, it will not happen!
  • Parking: there is plenty of onsite car parking as well as lockable outbuildings to store your bikes or boats securely.
  • Activities: the grounds are large and quite wonderful with their orienteering circuit (maps available on request from reception), fire pit for those of you wanting to try their hand at barbecues or bonfires (at your own risk and peril!).  It is paradise for children and our own have been running around the place since they were toddlers.
  • Doggy-friendly: we welcome dogs and their owners in two of our private rooms (the only exception being our shared lounge and dining room for the comfort of other guests) and there will be plenty of secure grounds for them to run around in (mind the sheep and cattle in the neighbouring fields!).
