We have just hired the whole hostel for a hen weekend. was amazing. Great space and location. Staff were very helpful and accommodating. Would really recommend this hiring it out for a special occasion.

Only downside is some of the radiators did't work but they kept the fire going for us.

As the title says, I've somehow managed to make it to this stage in my life and successfully avoided staying at youth hostels. However I was pleasantly surprised. In our final stage of our trip friends had booked this place due to a last minute cancellation. We were going there with 6 other families and their children and had sole use of the property. I think this probably made it more enjoyable knowing that it was only friends and family. My family shared one room with bunk beds and a double bed with ensuite. It was a bit like being back at school. It was a bit basic but fun for a couple of nights so we all had lashings of fun. The location is brilliant, the view from the dining tables was just fantastic. Watching the waves rolling in as we had our breakfast. The beach is just a stones throw. We did self catering and this worked well with all the families contributing. My only small constructive comment would be to supply a fee paying washing machine for residents to use as there are a multitude of muddy ponds for children to fall into around there. Handwashing 4 sets of mud covered clothing each day was not the high point of my stay but apart from that, it comes highly recommended even by me - the youth hostel virgin. However my husband did say he thought it was very posh for a youth hostel so i have to take his word for it.

This is a Youth Hostel, so don't expect five star luxury, but you do get a five star welcome and fantastic beer.

It can be a bit tricky to find. On a dark night it can be easy to end up on the steep road down to the beach... ignore the beach road and drive along the track just to the left of the campsite entrance.

The best location; ever.Although a youth hostel with basic rooms; some are double or family rooms with en-suite. Comfortable and quiet. Superb and well priced food;far superior to food I have had in any other hostel. Licensed bar with excellent range of local beers.There seemed to be nothing that was too much trouble for the staff; very friendly and helpful. Very regular music events. Surfing within yards of the front door. Wonderful walking from the front door. Views to die for. Perfect, perfect
Open all over Christmas with open fire. Cafe / bistro / bar was open all day and evening. Staff amazingly welcoming.
DOG FRIENDLY CAFE / BAR

Room Tip: On e of the most beautiful family beaches within yards of the hostel. Surfing, swimming, rock pools...

we called into the YHA and immediately met the chef, manager, Buddy and all round good guy through the window of the kitchen!... we couldn't get in because we had no key code.
after check in which was simple, we had a cuppa tea.... the best!
Room, although small was clean and adequate... after all it's a place to lay our heads.
Wi-fi available to members and 2 or 3 computers available to general use.....
We're here for the night and have breakfast included in our £33.00. Glad we bought and renewed membership. Breaker review tomorrow.

We held a 40th birthday party for my husband here and we had an amazing time. The rooms were what you would expect in a YHA, basic, but they were clean and the beds were comfy. Staff were lovely. They catered for us and it was great, good price too. Not exactly cheap to rent out the whole place for a night but well worth it. Such an incredible location and a perfect party room. Our guests loved it too. Highly recommended.

My Husband, myself and our 6 year old son have recently returned from a 3 night stay during October half term. We arrived to a very friendly greeting and were allocated room 3, WOW what an amazing sea view. Our 6 year old was immediately off exploring as we unloaded the car and unpacked. He had an amazing time we hardly saw him. We stayed over Halloween they put on an amazing Halloween party with pumpkin carving, fancy dress, live music and Karaoke. A good time was had by all.

The burger meal we ordered on our second night was delicious and amazing value for money. It came with a glass of wine or beer or cider all for £6.49. Try the house red it is one of the best red wines I have tasted.

We have already booked to return for 4 days in May half term next year. This YHA is right on an amazing beach and we intend to hire wet suits and try out body boarding.

Thanks to Matt and his team for the amazing job you do at YHA Treyarnon. Cant wait to see you all again in May.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 3 with the most amazing sea view. Also rooms 1 & 2 have a sea view.
