Croeso Corris Hostel

Croeso (welcome) to Corris Hostel - an award winning "green" independent hostel with an environmental and Celtic theme.

The 42 bed hostel (Welsh Tourist Board 3 star graded) is within an old school of character and charm, overlooking the mountain craft village of Corris. Come and feel at home in a caring and holistic atmosphere.

We are situated within the Dyfi Eco Valley in a land of ancient energies & sites, Druids and myths. This land has a biosphere of nature reserves, sandy beaches, rolling hills with cascading waterfalls, and the lofty mountain of Cadair Idris.

It is also a mecca for cyclists, with off-road routes and Sustrans National Route 8. We are located near the ancient market town of Machynlleth, the 'alternative' capital of Waleswhich is now becoming a national centre for ECO-tourism and lifestyle. Three miles up the valley is the world renowned Centre for Alternative Technology, with practical solutions for a world of green living.

At Corris itself, there is King Arthur's Labyrinth, with its spectacular underground settings, the adjacent craft centre, and narrow gauge railway.
