Plas Curig Hostel Revisited


This time last year we were in full throttle designing the Hostel. By now all the structural work had been done, the bunk beds had been built in and the decoration had started.  What a project!  Once a YHA, it had become so run down they were about to lose their 2 star rating, so under new ownership the plan was to create a luxury hostel while still keeping the prices low.  This has most definitely been achieved, the hostel was granted 5 stars from Visit Wales last October , 2011 and it is currently the only one to hold that status.  It is wonderful to come back and see that everything not only worked but still looks brilliant a year on.  The bookings are pouring in, nearly every weekend is full in advance and the atmosphere is stupendous.  The reviews on Trip Advisor have been quite sensational – deservedly so as the staff are very welcoming and the place is super clean and fresh – and The Guardian and Trail magazine have given Plas Curig a very big thumbs up.
