Best Brecon hostels

Top tips for finding the perfect Brecon hostel

  • To experience the archetypal Welsh Valleys holiday, choose one of the Brecon hostels in the countryside. Brynderwen is one of the top picks, in a lush rural location that’s also only about 3.5 miles (6 km) from the centre of the town itself. It’s a great all-round place to stay that will suit most travellers, from couples to families to groups of friends. There’s a wealth of rugged hiking trails surrounding the accommodation. If the weather is inclement, as it can often be in this region, there is indoor entertainment in the form of a shared lounge and TV area or a selection of puzzles and board games. These are especially useful if you have children with you.
  • If you like to take holidays that involve plenty of healthy, physical activity and you’re looking for Brecon hostels through KAYAK, a suitable place to book is Ty Newydd B&B. It’s a really charming place to stay, and serves as a base for cycling trips, horse riding and canoeing. Fishing is available right there on the premises. You’ll have a choice between a traditional English or Irish breakfast and, once suitably fed, you can set off for nearby tourist attractions like Brecon Cathedral, which is roughly 4 miles (7 km) from your accommodation. If you want a taste of Welsh history, it’s well worth making the roughly 10 mile (17 km) drive to visit Bronllys Castle.
  • For a cosy couples’ getaway, one of the best Brecon hostels, complete with four-poster beds, is Castle Lodge B&B. You’ll have your own kitchenette and dining area, and your hosts will organise grocery deliveries on request, so that you don’t need to leave your nest. There’s a picnic area, and you can also use the outdoor BBQ and patio. For on-site entertainment, there’s a games room, and you can go horse riding and hiking too. You can get packed lunches for this, and there are also a couple of shops selling essentials.
