Welcome to our hostel

There’s nowhere quite like YHA St Briavel’s Castle. How often do you get the chance to stay in a medieval tower? And at these prices too! Perfect for families, the hostel is brimming with history. Join one of our fascinating guided tours and we’ll let you into the secrets of this 800-year-old building. If you really want to get into the spirit of the place then join us for one of our regular medieval banquets. The hostel makes a great base activity holidays in the Royal Forest of Dean and Wye Valley. If you’re on two feet then take Offa’s Dyke path – the ancient border separating England and Wales. If you’re on two wheels then don’t miss the Royal Forest Route with its sculpture trail and 19th-century mines.
