We first stayed at this YHA several years ago and I think that must have been straight after its refurbishment. Then our view was super clean fresh rooms and nice decor. Sadly it's now reverted to a well-worn YHA with city prices. Good points - super, super nice staff - friendly and helpful. Good food at breakfast and dinner. House... More

We rented the whole YH for a weekend in March. There were about 35 people in our group. Location is excellent, good starting point for walks and cycle rides. It is a beautiful building, it is well maintained and spotless inside. Everything was in working order and it had all the things you need to cater for a large group... More

My wife, 3 year old son and I had a fantastic time at Beer YHA. It is a beautiful building with lovely views over Beer. It is very clean and you can tell it is looked after with lots of care and attention to detail. The manager, Gwen, was very welcoming, friendly and couldn't do enough to help us. We... More

We've just hired the entire YHA hostel for our wedding. The entire set up was perfect. We had complete use of the hostel from Friday through to Sunday, which gave the marquee company we'd used loads of time to set up and take down the marquee itself. The Hostel boasts an impressive lawn that has views back up the valley... More

After reading numerous positive reviews prior to booking our group of 3 were disappointed with many aspects of the YHA. We arrived after a long days walk to face a fairly laborious check in - online payment in advance may be worth considering, especially as the booking was made online. Room was basic, clean and fine other than the lack... More

We stayed here on a 3mth UK trip. The YHA manager was really pleasant and helpful. The room was good and the location was an easy walk to the main village. We enjoyed our stay and would love to visit again one day. Full marks - thanks so much !

Stayed here for a weekend with my walking club. It was clean, warm, friendly (staff and other guests). Great having food cooked for you, good value too. Would recommend to others. If you don't want to share with strangers booking would be a good idea, in advance. The staff are friendly and the food they supply/cook is really good value... More

What a wonderful place. The building has a lovely warmth to it, maybe something to do with the beautiful wooden floor on the ground floor. I loved the quirkiness of the building and the way some of the original features had been maintained. Nearly every window (that I saw) had a window seat, so you could take in a view... More
