Bit of a mixed visit to this yha having had numerous successful visits in recent months to other yha properties Setting is fantastic and on a sunny weekend it was a great place to stay The cleanliness of the property however really let it down. Like any yha much of that relies on the goodwill of the guests but here...

I'm retired, but my wife has a fairly stressful job and I was looking for somewhere that we could truly get away from it all. What bliss, no tv, no mobile signal, not even radio and to cap it all the weather gods were smiling. Yes we had some rain this was Wales in November for goodness sake but on...

This hostel is very well located for the Taff Trail and other walks in the Brecon region. It can be a struggle to find if you do not thoroughly read the directions on the website, as the left turn across the dam looks like it is only a cycle trail. We had a shared bathroom private room. The room was...

Hi Kitty_karate. Thank you for your review and feedback. We are constantly striving to improve our little farmhouse and have now made plans to put an extra set of blankets in each room, and we have found a way to dim the green emergency LED's in the new lights we fitted recently. The MIA toilet paper was naughty and extra...

Very accommodating staff who did their upmost to ensure our stay was as pleasant as possible. Above and beyond service vastly overshadowing other YHA stays to date. The accommodation was of appropriate calibre for the price of the room and thus was good value for money.

We stayed here for one night having travelled from YHA Pen-y-Pass. Lovely hostel and friendly staff, we were self catering but the food being served looked good. Would definitely stay for longer next time. Thank you

A friend and I stayed here this week during a cycle tour of Wales. We were so glad we had opted to stay here. After cycling a fair distance we arrived exhausted and barely able to string a sentence together but were greeted by Danny who was so friendly and welcoming. Just what was needed.

We had a family room for 3. The centre was in a great location and the view over the beacons and reservoir really fabulous. The staff were great and always helpful. Room a little small and we appreciated the shower though we knew we weren't en suite. Definitely recommend.

Hello Nicky and Simon, We loved having you guys here, again (!!!), at Danywenallt. The hostel really is ideal for guests such as yourselves, lovers of the outdoors. It's great to hear that you enjoyed the food and company too. No doubt you both know the Beacons pretty well by now, but be sure to return. See you then.

I stayed here for two nights over the August Bank Holiday weekend, and really enjoyed it! There is plenty to do here. Activities wise, you can stroll out and up onto the Beacons, which is what I did each day. There is also cycling on offer, hand gliding, Llangorse lake, a climbing centre, and a canal path to discover. I...

Hello Craignethercott, Thank you for staying with us at YHA Danywenallt, we're glad to hear you enjoyed the comfort and cleanliness of your stay. At times the hostel can become rather busy, and its age can, on occasions, make it a loud building to negotiate through. We hope this didn't impede upon the tranquillity of your stay too much.
