“A very good find for a long weekend”
Reviewed December 13, 2011

We stayed at St David's Youth Hostel for 5 nights and were really pleased with our choice. The hostel is away from the city itself and it feels like a nice retreat, away from everything. It clearly has been recently modernised with a brand new and well stocked kitchen and clean rooms (albeit a bit too small) with shared bathrooms (again, new and clean). Ample parking is available if you are coming by car.

We were lucky to have fantastic weather during our stay and could enjoy wonderful walks on the Pembrokeshire coast, easily accessible from the hostel. It is also possible to do some horse riding (depending on the season, we were a little too early in the year for that)

Will definitely stay there again if we are lucky to visit the area another time.

Room Tip: I rated the room "average" due to the small size. Maybe some larger room are available but...

Quite small YHA, with rooms scattered over 3 old farm buildings. The kitchen is well equiped and looks brand new (Ikea!). Rooms are quite small but clean an have a sink with a mirror, comfy bunkbeds and quilts. There are enough showers in the hallway. Outside are some picknicktables where you can enjoy the stunning view over Pembrokeshire. Just a 5 minutes walk away up the hill you get more amazing views over the ocean and the coastline. It is a 10 minutes drive from St. Davids and quite hard to find, so check your maps!

This hostel although named St Davids is a couple of miles outside of the city, within easy walking distance of Whitesands Bay. It is in a beautiful setting and very peaceful. The hostel has two kitchens, various outside benches, a drying room, very useful for wetsuits. The showers and toilets are of a high standard and very clean. The hostel manager Jeff is very friendly and helpful. The four bedded family rooms are on the small side. I have been to many other UK hostels and this is one of my favourites.
