Minehead Hostel

Hostel Minehead

Hostelling International

Welcome to our hostel

YHA Minehead is based in an attractive house high in Somerset’s Exmoor hills, perfect for a country retreat, a weekend break or family get-together.

This cosy hostel features a self-catering kitchen where you can make your own hearty meals as you would at home, laundry facilities, and a charming garden with barbeque facilities.

Take to two wheels, relax on a beach or try to spot a badger in the Exmoor National Park. This hostel is a great base for activity-packed breaks - the nearby tracks are great for mountain biking and cycling, while walkers can enjoy the South West Coast Path. Don’t miss the medieval village of Dunster - a lovely short walk away.

Lieu perdu en pleine nature pas trop facile à trouver; ambiance montagnarde, le cadre est charmant et calme. Youthhostel sans chaussures : on met ses chaussons comme a la maison ! Ambiance chalet, très chaleureuse, cuisine équipée au top ! On se sent bien ici. Le parking est un peu loin de la maison;

Mitten im Wald. Anfahrt etwas beschwerlich. Kostenlose Parkplätze vorhanden. Sehr nettes Personal.

Die Jugentherberge an sich ist sehr nett, abseits des Ortes mitten im Grünen gelegen. Ohne Auto und mit Gepäck sicherlich nicht gut erreichbar. Mit Auto aber auch ein Problem, da die Anfahrt zur Jugendherberge über eine Forstweg erfolgt, der genau das ist: ein Forstweg. Für sperrigere Fahrzeuge oder Autos mit wenig Bodenfreiheit definitv nicht passierbar und auch für normale Autos ungeeignet (Geländewagen o.k.). Ist man ohne Achsbruch angekommen, hat sich der Weg jedoch wirklich gelohnt.

Einer der besten Jugendherbergen, die ich erlebt habe. Lage, wie im verwunschenen Märchenwald. Super sauber und gemütlich. Personal sehr hilfsbereit.
