Just returned from a four day, midweek break involving nine family members comprising two grandparents, two parents, three mid twenties and a teenager. The younger generation chose to use the well appointed campsite while others preferred the clean and comfortable hostel accommodation. Everyone enjoyed this idyllic facility, set in a secluded, breathtakingly beautiful location. Detailed attention is given to the requirements of guests, ranging from a well equipped communal kitchen to an effective drying room. Best of all were the exceptionally helpful staff members who really made every effort to make our stay such a pleasure.

I made a booking with YHA Brecon Beacons Danywenallt back in January for two groups of four people. This was two separate groups staying in two different rooms, arriving in separate vehicles and going on separate treks the next day (i.e. the two had nothing to do with each other - they weren't even arriving / departing or eating dinner together.) At the last minute, days before the booking, the hostel cancelled my booking, stating that they could not accommodate a group of 8 due to Covid regulations and the rule of six. I tried to explain that this was two separate groups of four and not a group of 8, but they were having none of it and refused to honour the booking. As they cancelled at such short notice it has been impossible to find a suitable accommodation so close to our travel date. Really poor customer service, no other hostels had an issue with this arrangement and they were completely unprepared to listen to my case.

I stayed at this wonderfully positioned hostel as part of a group renting the whole place for a long winter weekend. It was the second time we had come - because loved it so much the first time. The hostel was very comfortable and had two lovely sitting/dining rooms with wood burning stoves. They look out onto the unspoilt valley, so short walks from the hostel, as well as longer treks, were scenic and varied. Most extraordinary was the help we received from the warden Bryan. His communications before we arrived were great. Most amazing though was his help in returning to us a pair of binoculars that we left behind. The Covid-19 crisis was ramping up but he responded to our text and phone calls in a very friendly and efficient manner. He found the binoculars, wrapped them up with great care and posted them back to us. He wouldn't take any money and said that they saved some of the tips they received to return lost items. I had never thought to tip wardens and staff of hostels, but I will do in future!

Turn from the main road a park will be on the right, there is a small walk to the hostel although reception is well signed. There is a shared lounge area, camping area, picnic tables, drying room, shared and private bathrooms, reception, dining room and kitchen which was well maintained and clean. In the lounge area there are some board games and books and a wood-burning fire place. There is very limited wi-fi (I could not get any phone signal at all). Very reasonable prices to stay, we stayed in a shared room although was informed that there was no other bookings so we had the room to ourselves. The location is good, only a short drive from Brecon and a short drive from walking routes for Pen y Fan.

We were a small group of friends wanting a cheap and cheerful break to do some walking in the fabulous Brecon Beacons. It was certainly cheap: thanks to a special offer we paid the less than princely sum of £9 each per night. It was certainly cheerful: the staff were friendly and super-helpful, nothing was too much trouble. The setting is superb, with walking in all directions straight from the door. The bedrooms are warm and comfortable. The lounge and dining room rely on woodburners for heating. A couple of things to be aware of: the bedrooms have no reading lights, so take a torch if you’re a night time reader; the emergency lighting is quite bright, so if you’re a light sleeper, maybe take eye shades; the track leading to the hostel is pretty rough in places so leave the Porsche at home, we scraped the bottom of our car (a Golf) on the way out but no harm done. We managed to exit without scraping when we tried it a second time. We thoroughly enjoyed our break and will certainly be back.
