Details

Sorry no pets (with the exception of registered assistance dogs) including pets in vehicles in our car parks


If you can't decide between a countryside or seaside break, look no further as YHA Kings is perfect for both. At the southern end of the Snowdonia National Park, the hostel will suit families, school trips and individuals alike.

For activity breaks, there's pony trekking and watersports or good mountain biking if you're on a cycling holiday.

Walkers looking for a weekend break in Wales can choose between a high-level hike up Cader Idris or gentle trails leading to the Mawddach Estuary, where low tide sands and woodlands are a haven for wildlife and migrant waders. Dolgellau's great for fishing holidays too!

This 42 bed Youth Hostel has a selection of dorm rooms and private rooms, some of which are en-suite.

There is no TV or mobile phone signal at the hostel, making YHA Kings a fantastic 'get away from it all' location! There's a full range of shops and amenities five miles away in Dolgellau.

Wi-Fi is available but a charge is made by the service provider and due to our remote location, internet connectivity can be intermittent.

Breakfast and evening meals are available in our licensed restaurant.

We are fully licensed and offer a wide range of fairly priced drinks so guests are not permitted to bring their own alcohol on to the site.
