News & Offers
” I know where I’ll be wanting to stay next time I’m around Dolgellau area.”
HyB bunkhouse is on Heol y Bont in Dolgellau, mid Wales. It means Bridge Street and, I’m going to guess gives its initials to the name HyB Bunkhouse. The naming isn’t the only quirky detail. It is above the shop ‘Medi’ (which sells gifts and up-cycled chalk-paint goodies) in a listed building. There are beams and oak floorboards and wooden panels. There isn’t a communal kitchen/lounge but each room has a mini-kitchen for self catering, which means extra privacy. Perfect for your small group or family.
I know the HyB bunkhouse through its cycling links. The section of the Sustrans 82 cycle-way that goes through Dolgellau is one of the more challenging stretches but delivers views right through the heart of Snowdonia and along the coast too. Equally, the Coed Y Brenin mountain bike centre is right on the doorstep for high octane, Go Pro-friendly adventure.
An online reviewer gave a comment that carries more weight than anything I can write: “Modest and authentic hostel accommodation – exactly the style I prefer. I know where I’ll be wanting to stay next time I’m around Dolgellau area.”
Coed Y Brenin is the UK’s first dedicated mountain bike trail centre.
The excellent mountain bike track network at Coed Y Brenin has evolved from natural forest trails. There are 8 trails to ride of various difficulties and if you are unsure which to ride you can visit the Singletrack Zone, where you’ll see what to expect on the trails out in the forest.
Self catering accommodation in the heart of Dolgellau.
HyB Bunkhouse provides 4 rooms each with its own mini-kitchen and beds for four people. HyB is close to pubs and restaurants in the heart of Dolgellau. Dolgellau is the start/end of the stunning Mawddach cycle trail which is one of the off road sections of the Lon Las Cymru cycle route. The Mawddach Cycle trail follows the track of a disused railways line along the shore of the Mawddach Estuary, with stunning views on all sides. At the mouth of the Mawddach the cycle trail passes over the long Barmouth bridge into Barmouth. Stunning !
