A great place in a small village not near shops. The attached pub is a great place to meet the fun locals. There's a wonderful walk starting from the hostel.


I really enjoyed my stay here. It was on a bus route from Brecon and lots of hikes and walks nearby. It is a bit isolated even though it is in a "town" but if you have come to relax and do some walking then it will be perfect. ******no bus service on Sundays FYI but hostel staff very nice and will often give you a lift to nearest stop though


The owners were very welcoming- nothing was too much trouble or forgotten Gret value for money in terms of what you got The Bar area is cosy, friendly and popular with locals The en suite bathroom and bedding was fresh, spotless and clean. Even gaves us extra quilts and an extra heater in our room! Great breakfast/menu options for food Plenty information for walks/national park provided if ask Located 15 mins from Brecon and beautiful views
