Ty Powdwr is better equipped than a typical bunk-house, offering hostel-style accommodation. Group bookings can be made for up to 23 people in three dormitories. Families were at least one adult is a member of a BMC affiliated club with children can book whole dormitories. A fourth dormitory is always reserved for use by Karabiner Mountaineering Club members, who can use the Hut at any time.
