We stayed at the hostel campsite for 1 night during the recent big freeze! I didn't go into the hostel itself so I can't comment on the rooms etc.
However, the location is great on the banks of the Wye but be warned vehicle access is down a steep drive with a 180 degree hairpin bend just up from the hostel so if you have a big vehicle or are a bit of a nervous driver this may not be your cup of tea. We have a VW camper and it was ok but we did have to do a bit of forward and back to get round the bend.
Other members of our family tent camped in the campsite which is the field next to the hostel but vehicles weren't allowed there so we stopped in the bottom car park. There was no one else camping (probably put off by the cold) but that was a good thing as there is only 1 toilet for men and 1 for women. We were only staying one night so I didn't go inside the hostel to check out the showers.
There is a very well equipped kitchen for use by people staying in the hostel and campers which we used in the hope it would be a little warmer in there than outside! Again it was fine as there was only our group but if there was anyone else staying and cooking it would have been a bit of a squash.
We walked in both directions along the Wye and there are lots of footpaths for exploring. We also went to the pub on the other side of the river which was ok.
So the location is great but it felt an expensive stay - we aren't YHA members and so it was £26.00 for one night. Yes the kitchen facilities were good and we don't have a problem staying in a carpark but we were very glad that we were the only group there otherwise the facilities would have been quite stretched.
But we did have the most beautiful sunny 6.00am dawn with a beautiful frost (and ice inside the van!)
