Hey Im a random kiwi guy that was on a cycle tour right through the UK. By the time I got to St Davids i was in need of a much needed rest. The supervisor David and volunteer Anna were bouth thier weight in gold with the service they provided. Geoff even washed my smelly clothes and hung them out when i forgot to hang them out! Outstanding. The prices for the rooms are normal for all YHA so you know what to expect. Also the interest that both Anna and Geoff have in you in wanting to now who you and what your life story is is phenomenal.
Right first and foremost i want to explain everything from an unbiased view about this hostel. So first of all I will naturally starts with the good then the bad.
GOOD - its close to magnificent beaches. A little walk from St Davids city centre but cuts right through paddocks to end up right next to the cathedral. The kitchens are functional, clean and with all modern amenities. The living areas are lovely with nice views overlooking the paddocks. The rooms are bunked mainly but cosy with in my opinion and rustic feel. The surrounding areas outside are well keep with a bbq that can be used. The whole hostel as a whole has a rustic charm that makes you feel at ease as soon as your there.
BAD - Absolutely bloody nothing!
Verdict - If you do not stay here you basically missing a trick. I had the most brilliant two days there to rest. Well done guys and keep it real.
