A myriad of small, quiet roads all the way down from Shropshire to the Herefordshire Marches.
Nestling in the Welsh Marches on the edge of an historic market town, cosy and comfortable YHA Kington is perfect for an activity break or weekend away exploring this region’s idyllic villages and rolling countryside.
Situated on the Offa’s Dyke path, the hostel is great for cycling and walking holidays, as well as canoeing and pony trekking. The hostel is a stone’s throw from the Welsh border and just 40 minutes from the Brecon Beacons National Park.

We allocate availability for exclusive use in blocks, typically up to 90 days in the future. If you are looking for space to stay with us on a normal shared basis, and can’t see any availability three months or more into the future, then this hostel may be being held for Exclusive Hire.

Meet the team
Manager recommends: Don't miss Hergest Ridge, with panoramic views of the glorious border country, wild ponies, red kites and buzzards soaring overhead - simply stunning. It's a gentle climb to the ridge, but benches along the way make it accessible to most. It’s just a twenty minute walk, or five minute, drive from the hostel - put it on your to-do list for your walking holiday or weekend break.
