Snowdonia YHA Ranger Station

#1 Post by old git » Sun Jun 13, 2010 11:13 am

Just thought of this, went there in Feb. roads around as you can imagine are brilliant (even in Feb.)
Was only £15.95 (+£3 non members fee), warm, dry bed, clean sheets (sealed in a pack for your arrival).
Never been to one of these before, but doing a small tour via various YHA in July.
Hot showers etc.etc. for the money can't be beat I don't think & most of them are in brilliant aras.
This one had plenty of parking, lakeside aspect, fry-up in the morning if you wanted it for small charge, or make you own in the catering kitchen, small bar & meals available in the evenings for the lazy like me.
Give it a go, cheaper than hotels & better than camping in the winter.

Had a quick smile at the mention of youth in connection with the members of this forum, but yep, good thought OG. :smt001

Nice reminder, OG; I'd never considered YHA places, even tho' I used them frequently in my youth ( :smt017 seem to remember being young once). I believe they're much less spartan than they used to be

I've recently joined YHA, having no wages as such these days I can't really drop £50 into travelLodge once or twice (in between campsites) in a weeks travelling if I need somewhere to 'flop', YHA seemed a bargain :smt003
