In the very small town of Kington in lovely countryside for walking and horse-riding this is a very friendly recently modernised hostel. There's an en-suite disabled-friendly family room too. There's a kitchen to cook your own food in (meals aren't currently available). They have many suggestions for local walks. You can get a bus to Knighton and walk back along... More

It's a very long time since I visited a youth hostel, to be honest. I booked Kington using the Exclusive Hire service, so my group had sole use of the property for the time we stayed. There was 7 of us using the property as a base for a motorcycling break. Everything we needed was there. The place was clean... More

I was a walk in off Offa's Dyke and only intended to stay one night but stayed three because of the price (Member of YHA) and convenience of location. I was able to make appointments in Hereford and Hay on Wye from here with very little trouble. The Manageress was warm and welcoming and everything is here for the weary... More

We stayed here and had exclusive hire with a group of friends (5 families in total). We arrived in the evening. All the heating was turned off to save the environment so we turned on the radiators that we needed and it soon warmed up. As we had exclusive hire there was no staff member on site which is normal... More

Building has recently been refurbished and is in excellent condition. Dorms clean and comfortable with en-suite. Large, well equipped kitchen and large dining room adjacent. Comfortable lounge with TV. Shops and services a few minutes away in... More

The hostel is in a good location just off the high street, an easy walk to the supermarket, pub, cafe and launderette. We arrived at about 4pm and as the hostel was closed we waited outside. At about 4.20pm a staff member arrived and stated we could not go in until 5pm (as per the opening times). It was dead... More

Thank you for your feedback. I'm disappointed that you weren't allowed into the hostel until 5pm. If no staff member was present until that time it would be different but with someone on-site I am very surprised that they didn't open the door and allow you to use the common rooms. The washing machine and dryer are usually fine, I... More

Thank you for your positive review. It's good to know that you enjoyed your stay and appreciated the lovely area. I'll pass your kind comments on to Colin, a fantastic volunteer. I see you found the fabled "Tavern", a great little real ale pub a hundred yards or so from the hostel. More

Very welcoming hostel, clean, great kitchen space and well equipped, enjoyable evenings' spent in the Lounge playing rather noisy games. We walked the ridge spectacular scenery, this walk will be remembered for the slightly different but very welcoming coffee shop with good homemade flapjacks etc. a very enjoyable weekend with very helpful hostel staff, would thoroughly recommend Kington YHA

This place is warm! A great way to heat up after a cold day in the hills We stayed here for a family gathering of 28 and rented the entire property. Situated in the centre of Kington, catering and partying was a doddle thanks to a great big communal area furnished with sturdy wooden furniture. The kitchen is huge, clean,... More

Cheap looking the beds was unclean and damp. Unfriendly. Very out dated. The road outside had cars going past at all hours. Room was full of flys. The showers had no hot water. Toliets unclean. I will never stay here again
