Thank you to the staff for a splendid overnight at Port Eynon YHA. I had booked in earlier in the day and was made to feel very welcome by the manager, who caught me walking down the path and told me enthusiastically that he had been expecting me. Nothing was too much trouble from moment one. The hostel itself is...

Well equipped, thoughtfully managed and the most fantastic views of the beach and sea from the communal areas. Doable without a car as the hostel stocks some non-perishable goods and the village has plenty of cafes etc. Thoroughly recommended for a short family break.

Visited with a school group, as I have gone for many years. Had a really lovely stay and a cracking field trip. The accommodation is very comfortable and the views even on stormy days are awesome. Very good communal areas as well.

I can't say enough thank you to the manager! The location is very good and you can walk a beautiful path along the coast. The youth hostel has a big panorama window and you have a nice view on the beach. The hostel has good cooking facilities, is clean and the beds are cozy.

And it would have been more had I known the location on the beach was so good. Away from any roads - parking is just minutes along a lane - the old lifeboat station has been up-graded over the years to provide very comfortable accommodation and a well equipped kitchen. If you don't want to cook the little village will...

This hostel is wonderfully situated on the beautiful Gower peninsula, with hiking opportunities all around. The building itself is surrounded by camping grounds, which were mostly empty when we visited mid-week in September. You can hike up to the point behind the hostel for some wonderful views from the cliffs. We lucked out with some fabulous, warm weather during our...

We had an amazing family and friends birthday weekend here. The hostel is very clean and Dianne, the warden, very helpful. She made us feel very welcome. The mattresses on the bunk beds are incredibly comfortable and the hostel is very well laid out. We needed more mugs because we were an adult only group, but Dianne saw to that...
