YHA Broad HavenHaverfordwest, Pembrokeshire, SA62 3JH
Just a stone’s throw from a well-renowned, beautiful Blue Flag beach, YHA Broad Haven is a super spot for seaside family breaks. The hostel is dominated by its beach-side location, with a nautical theme running throughout the building.
Explore the Pembrokeshire coastal path from the hostel’s front door, or at low tide, walk the half mile over the sand to Little Haven with its quaint fishermen’s cottages and quayside. If you're feeling peckish, why not enjoy some food with a stunning sea view at our Haven's Beach Cafe?

Accommodation at YHA Broad Haven
Bed in a shared room
Dorm rooms have multiple beds and are shared with other people who may not be travelling together. They are usually more affordable than private rooms as you'll be booking a bed rather than the whole room.
A typical shared dorm room includes bunk beds, a reading light and a storage cupboard for each guest.
Children aged between 12 and 15 can stay in dorm rooms as long as an adult of the same gender accompanies them.
Shared shower and toilet facilities are located near to the room. Some of our shared dorm rooms are en-suites, meaning that they have a bathroom that you would share with other guests who are also staying in the room.
Want some privacy? With a private room, you'll be booking the whole room for your stay.
Private rooms typically include a storage cupboard and reading light for each bed, plus a wash hand basin.
Shared shower and toilet facilities are located near to the room.
Private en-suite rooms
For added privacy, relax with your family, friends or by yourself in a private en-suite room.
Private en-suite rooms typically include a storage cupboard and reading light for each bed, plus shower and toilet facilities solely for the people in your room.
Like camping but with a few added extras! Our Landpods sleep up to 4 people, on two double mattresses and a single futon mattress, which doubles up as the seating area. All bedding is included, plus duvets and LED lighting.
Landpods don't have heating, so are more suited to the those who like a traditional camping experience. Even in the colder months, it’s nothing a couple of warm, cosy blankets can’t fix! There is a bench and BBQ firepit outside, so make the most of the great outdoors and dine al fresco.

YHA Broad Haven was built in partnership with the Country side Commission (now the Pembrokeshire Coastal National Park Authority) in 1980 to be used as a youth hostel. They had an information centre next door which is now our field study centre for visiting groups. The youth hostel is situated in the Pembrokeshire National Park, which is the only coastal National Park in the UK.
