Hostelling International

Welcome to our hostel

Head to the wilds and this 18th century farmhouse in the lovely Tywi Valley for a relaxing rural retreat. YHA Dolgoch is a tranquil hostel in a peaceful and remote environment with the nearest shop 9 miles away, so please come prepared.

The hostel features a fully-equipped self-catering kitchen and a cosy common room where you can sit back and relax after a day spent outdoors. There is no electricity but the lighting is powered by a solar panel. The only heating is a wood burning stove.

YHA Dolgoch hostel is a great base for walking, mountain-biking and bird watching, a pastime that can be enjoyed by anyone. Pony overnighting is available and the Welsh National Cycle Route runs nearby.

There is no electricity (no phone reception, no wifi), that was quite a shock at first, but I didn't really need it anyway. There is a very nice living room with an old fashioned stove and lots of books and games. Still there is a phone you can use if you need to make a call. Closest grocery store is in Tregaron which is a 30/45 minutes drive from the hostel. This is a perfect place for hikers and people who want to get away from the city or a while. It was a wonderful adventure!
