I stayed at St David's when I traveled from London with three friends to surf. The staff at St David's were so helpful from beginning to end, letting us arrive late, and giving us tips on cafe's for breakfast the next day. I wouldn't hesitate from staying there again!

All that you would expect, plenty of facility space - even if full, (kitchens x2, showers inside and outside dinning areas). Location is great and you could base yourself here for a week or do the one night on your way along the coast path. Our family room for two was small only room for a bunk bed, right by...

This hostel is not the kind of hostel you expect to have, like in cities (very noisy, people shouting, bad isolation, etc...). NO, this one was perfect if you wanted to stay in a quite place nearby the sea. The staff was friendly and making sure we had everything we need. The kitchen was clean, and every pan-pot-cutlery that we...

Nice old hostel in a lovely location. the staff were really lovely when i was there. my room was small but comfortable and the remote location means that it's worth sitting out for a glimpse of the local wildlife

This hostel is in a fantastic, magical location. It is self catering in well equipped kitchens with lovely dining rooms. The rooms have shared showers and toilets. There is no wifi and little phone signal. It is a real escape in a truly magical setting. The coast path is very nearby and possibly the most stunning in Wales with fantastic...

many thanks for your review of the hostel. We are all so glad you enjoyed the stunning scenery and walking the coastal path. St Davids is unique - a village with a cathedral. The smallest city in the UK. Claire

This hostel is probably 2 or 3 miles outside of St David's but that's a good thing as it is near the beautiful Whitesands Bay and the Pembrokeshire Coast Path. It was quiet, picturesque and there's a great little hill out the back for an early morning walk. Check in isn't normally until 5pm but we arrived early and the...

Fantastic quite location, with views over the bay. Close to coastal path, just behind the hostel. A group of us shared a room last September, 2015. We had glorious weather and sat outside at night drinking beer & wine with others (well behaved), in the hostel, really friendly relaxed atmosphere. Hostel had been modified to all the usual standard shower...

I've stayed here a couple of times now and I just love the location - it is a real gem and a great getaway. The hostel has been modernised since my first trip. The host was very helpful and friendly, offered to put the fire on for us each night which was lovely.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Experience the magic of the area with breathtaking bays, beaches and hills. This rural retreat is a converted farmhouse at Whitesands Bay, one of Britain's Blue Flag beaches, great for a cheap family seaside break. Swimming, surfing, coasteering, climbing, riding and walking - everything's here for a non-stop activity break or watersports holiday. Don't miss St Davids Cathedral and St Non's - a significant religious site. Try and pull in a visit to Ramsey Island, with its wealth of bird and sea life. There's a separate four bed unit that's great for family breaks. ... more   less
