We spend 3 nights here in a family room. It was busy but there was plenty of space in the dining room at meal times. We did our own catering and the kitchen facilities were very good. The lounge was comfortable with a selection of books and games. The bedroom was small but lovely and warm even though were were...

Hi there Jan, and many thanks for the lovely review...and truthful too!! We're a lovely cosy place really, and with great guests staying then there's very usually a very peaceful feel to the hostel. One day we'll get those windows triple glazed!! All the best for now, Andrew

Surrounded by woodland, hidden up a track away from all the hustle and bustle of Minehead this is a lovely hostel. Really friendly and helpful staff and spotlessly clean. Leave your boots at the door! Countless footpaths to explore right from the doorstep. Wander over the hills for a couple of miles easy walk to wonderful Dunster with its castle...

Hi there, and we're very happy that you had a great time with us and in the lovely places to visit around us. Dunster certainly is a highlight and only 2 miles from us up and over the hills of Exmoor. Many thanks for noticing how clean we are too!! All the best, Andrew, Angela and Charlotte.

This hostel has a beautiful location although be aware that it is a little way out of town and up a very bumpy track, my bike just made it without being rattled to pieces. The hostel was very clean and all facilities more than adequate. The manager, Andrew, was extremely friendly and helpful. The wifi was useful as there was...

I like the remoteness of this YHA, even if the drive down and track up a hill nearly killed our beloved car! Wifi was good we just about got it in our room, which had nice view across the woods, it had a sink but share bathroom. I didn't take a shower because the stains in the bath grossed me...

Many thanks for the review Gorwydd, and for choosing to stay with us recently. We are indeed up a bumpy bridleway (so special permission to us and our guests to be able to drive up here in the woods) just inside Exmoor National Park, so the views aren't too bad really!! Yet we are only 20 minutes lovey walk away...

I stayed there a year ago as a volunteer and felt home immediately. I do love the forest and I could have never imagined that no WiFi would be such a nice thing to happen. The hostel is a really nice building with a big comfortable kitchen and a nice common room where i especially enjoyed the huge windows. There...

Afetr a busy summer, decided to have a break. Booked a night at the YHA in Minehead. Easy to do. Arrived early morning. The hostel was closed until later in the day. We parked our car and went for a walk. Popping in to the local pub at the bottom of the road before a 20 minute walk into Minehead...

We visited the south of England within two weeks with a family of four and stayed mainly in hostels by the YHA. This hostel was the hostel which met most the spirit of old hosteling: no TV (but Wi-Fi for the kids..), situated in an beautiful building in the forest, a bit apart from town (a bit complicated to find...

Many thanks to the Richters for the very kind review. I'm glad you enjoyed our peaceful spot on the edge of Exmoor. The walk up to us from the town on a hot sunny day is usually a huge relief as you go under the shady trees and escape far from the cars and hubbub of town. See you again...

Booked the bell tent as they looked great. It was advertised as beautiful, so I was a bit disgusted to see a tent covered in bird mess. Also, unlike the sample photo on the website, the tent is pitched on such a steep slope that the beds all are at various angles . . . the worst of which is...
