Why guests love YHA Llangattock Mountain Bunkhouse
Accommodation at YHA Llangattock Mountain Bunkhouse
Bed in a shared room
Dorm rooms have multiple beds, are typically more affordable than private rooms, and shared with other people who may not be travelling together. A typical shared room includes bunk beds, a reading light and a storage cupboard for each guest, secured by a padlock if required.
Children aged between 12 and 15 can stay in dorm rooms as long as an adult of the same gender accompanies them.
Some dorms may be en-suites, meaning that they have a bathroom in the room that you would be sharing with the other people in your dorm.
Don't fancy sharing a room? Private rooms typically include a storage cupboard for each bed, secured by a padlock if required, a reading light and a wash hand basin. Shared shower and toilet facilities are located near to the room.
Private en-suite rooms
Enjoy your own space with a private en-suite room. Private rooms typically include a storage cupboard for each bed, secured by a padlock if required, a reading light and a wash hand basin.
Camping is only available to increase numbers as part of a sole use or Exclusive Hire booking. Please contact the hostel directly if you wish to add camping to your booking.
Hire the whole place
This hostel is occasionally made available for hire on an exclusive basis. This means that you can have the place to yourself and choose how many of your friends, family, club mates, etc., join you.

Meet the team
Manager recommends: For a different activity break, try caving at Llangattock Hillside - the largest network of caves in Europe. We can put you in touch with caving instructors, so there's no excuse!
