I have stayed at this bunkhouse twice now. Used it for both my holidays in 2013. Firstly was in March was me a single female with 4 lads and then in August with my boyfriend.
I have stayed at a fair few youth hostels and bunkhouses but nothing beats the warm welcome you get from Mark and the rest of the staff when you go to The Vagabond. The house itself is very homely with a good sized kitchen and dining area to chill out in. The bar is a lovely place to kick back and have a drink with fellows walkers/climbers/cyclers. Infact the first time we stayed here we managed to convince, on our first night, a fellow traveller to bring himself and his guitar inside out from the cold and play for all of us in the bar. At that point I think my friends and I knew that we had picked a gem here.
The care Mark and his staff have for The Vagabond and it’s customers shows in its upkeep. The Vagabond has all the essentials needed for a wary walker to rest their head after a long day.
I would recommend this bunkhouse to anyone going to north wales not just for its facilities, cleanliness and value for money but the care the staff have for their customers, new and old.
I look forward to seeing you again in 2014!
