Lodge Dinorwig is right on the edge of the Snowdonia National Park in North Wales. Entering the building you can still find features of its previous use as a school. The 4* bunkroom sleeps up to 14 people and all beds are equipped with curtains, plug sockets and reading lights. Lodge Dinorwig will look after all your catering needs during your stay. A cooked breakfast is included and you can book dinner if you wish. Overlooking Snowdon and Llanberis, Lodge Dinorwig is the perfect base to plan your route up the highest mountain in England and Wales. With North Wales being the Adventure Capitol of Europe, Lodge Dinorwig is conveniently located for many adventures. A short drive will get you to the fastest Zip Line in Europe and many activities like mountain biking, coasteering, surfing, climbing and trampolining are just waiting right outside our front door. The on-site Cafe gives you the perfect excuse for that slice of cake after a day spent in the mountains.

News & Offers from Lodge Dinorwig Hostel and Cafe

The perfect base for the attractions of Snowdonia- including Zip World!

September 3rd 2019

Make Lodge Dinorwig your base to start your adventure in North Wales

There are not many places in North Wales with views like ours over Snowdon, Llanberis and Anglesey. The perfect spot to plan your route up Snowdon, psych yourself up before heading off to Zip World or just deciding which beach to explore today.

The bunkroom is very cosy, with capacity for 14 people in handmade bunk beds; bedding is provided and the beds have curtains for extra privacy. We have plenty of space for you to lounge about and enjoy our on-site Cafe. 

Our cooked breakfast (included in our rates), is perfect before setting off to hike up Snowdon and nearby peaks. The café serves great lunches and we can provide you with a packed lunch to take with you.

We don’t have any self-catering facilities at the Hostel but dinner can be booked with us as well. Why worry about cooking and washing up when we can do it for you for just £12.50 for two courses. 



Explore the beaches of Anglesey

July 18th 2019

Did you know that Lodge Dinorwig is just a short drive from Anglesey Island? If you are looking for some beach adventures, Anglesey has 27 sandy beaches and rocky coves.

With over 100 miles of coast line around Anglesey, you have plenty of beaches to choose from. When the sun makes an appearance and reflects on the deep blue sea you have to remind yourself that you are still in Wales as it could be anywhere in the world. We might be lacking the tropical temperatures from down south to enjoy a play in the water without a wet suit but rock pool exploring and beach strolling are very high on the list of favourite beach activities. Enjoy some long sandy stretches on one side of the island or head over to the rugged bays with many cliffs and stunning coastal walks


Escape the crowds and visit Snowdonia

July 5th 2019

It can get busy on the highest mountain in Wales but we have lots of other gems right on Lodge Dinorwigs door step to explore and enjoy without the hussle and bussle.

One of the top attractions in our neighbourhood is Snowdon. And while it is a beautiful mountain with stunning views, the amount of people walking up to its peak can be a little bit off-putting for other walkers.
This shouldn’t stop you from coming to the area to explore the mountains.
One of our favourite walks to escape the crowds is the Elidir Horseshoe. You can walk out of the hostel and you’ll be on the top of Elidir within an hour and the views over the Snowdon Massive are fantastic on a clear day. Then keep walking along the top ridge to take in the whole panorama of the mountains.
Why not try another peak and explore the Ogwen Valley? It’s just a short drive to the bottom of the paths and a couple of lakes make a perfect hiking location for the warmer summer days. Just remember it’s Wales and if you fancy a proper swim, you might need a wet suit to enjoy it for longer 🙂
We have endless oportunities to enjoy the outdoors right on our doorstep and we are more then happy to give you some pointers in the right directions to make your stay as fun and adventures as you would like it to be.
We still have a few dates in August available so please get in touch to book.
