Sutty, who used to be on here, organised a UKC winter meet 2 winters ago and about 30 of us stayed here:
No idea if he was a member of the club or how he booked it, but a great place, great fire, huge kitchen, just outside Llanberis, pub at the bottom of the road. Probably an ideal place.
Hope this helps, Den
Think I am going to hit a brick wall, what with needing it on May bank holiday!!
There's a bunkhouse on Garth Farm now (other end of the lake from Plas Y Brenin), but I've no idea how good it is. The farmer offered it to me as a refuge one night during a particularly vile storm, but I managed to stay in the tent instead.
May be worth ringing to ask about (01690 720212)
There's a lovely bunkhouse between Ogwen and Bethesda which will fit the bill. Just Google Ogwen Bunkhouse. The owner is a really nice guy.
Just looked it up: Glan Dwr bunkhouse.

While we're here, does anyone know of a similar sort of place in the Dolgellau / Cadair Idris sort of direction?
Hvae a look on www.independenthostelguide.co.uk plenty of budget accommodations there.
