Ty'n Cornel has been called the most remote hostel in Wales, and a favourite hostel with those who seek solitude. Walkers and adventurous cyclists can explore the mountain terrain of the Elenydd, with several hilly tracks to choose from. The hostel is comfortable and has an open fire in the lounge. There is also a small area of grass adjacent to the building where it is possible to camp.

We stayed one night in Ty'n Cornel, walking in and earning a voucher to stay again for half price if we returned within a year. The hostel is comfortable with a very cosy living room. The area is stunning. So many hills to explore. Thank you to the Trust and the volunteers for keeping this gem going.

This is definately a beautiful spot and extremely remote... it had a beautiful log fire and was very warm in the lounge room however I would say to take some winter pyjamas as it was cold elsewhere in the house... it had everything else you need shower kitchen bike shed etc I would suggest bringing binoculars as the wildlife around the area is so beautiful to watch.. best couple of nights sleep I've had in a long time it was so quiet!! Would definately visit again.

A hostel at a beautiful and remote spot. Lots of hiking to do in the area, and right along the Cambrian Way. The hostel itself is very comfortable, an abundantly good shower, large kitchen and very welcoming living room. The place has all the vibes of a mountain hut, but with modern-day comforts. If you are in the area; Ty'n-Cornel is most definitely worth the visit!

I had two great nights at Ty'n Cornel, it was warm and comfortable, quiet and far away enough into the hills to make it feel wild. The last mile of the road to the hostel was done very slowly but I made it in my little Panda so you don't need a 4x4, just a sense of adventure! The kitchen was incredibly well equipt, so don't necessarily go basic wi your ingredients. The trust that runs this hostel (and Dolgoch) are doing a great job and I will return. Thanks.

Thanks for your review, Bob. I’m glad you had a good time. The woodburning stove certainly makes it very cosy now. Thank you for the comment about the kitchen. We do try to have everything people might need. Yes, do come back again. Janet and Richard Hollins, Hostel Managers

I'd been before once, with the ramblers. I love the place. Yes a little chilly in winter but it ads to the ambience of the place. It's just the best. I had it all to myself. Fantastic. I wish I could live there.
