Cymdeithas Rheilffordd Ffestiniog


The Ffestiniog Railway Society aims to make friendly, good-standard accommodation available to volunteers.

Minffordd Hostel

Minffordd Hostel

Most volunteers stay in the purpose built Minffordd Hostel – it is situated close to both the FR and National Railway (Arriva Wales) stations.

Minffordd hostel is the best accommodation available on the railway, and we would like to wager that it is certainly in the premier league of volunteer accommodation on preserved railways. The Ffestiniog: best Railway, best accommodation!
