Accommodation at YHA Manorbier

The hostel

Dorms are not currently available. 

This 70-bed hostel has private bunk rooms for couples, families, or friends. Half our rooms are en-suite, while the others have shared washroom facilities. In 2015, we refurbished our reception and foyer area, plus we have added stylish new furniture, modern metal beds and a wonderful sea view. We have also upgraded our bathroom facilities.

There is a large, modern self-catering kitchen off the dining room. The kitchen contains two-four burner gas hobs, one large range cooker with six burners and three oven compartments, one oven, one microwave, two fridges and a range of kitchen utensils, crockery, and cutlery for guests to using during their stay. Tea towels, bin bags, washing up liquid and soap are provided.

The large dining room, with views out to sea, has seating for 50 people. The lounge has seating for 20 people to sit and relax after a day’s exploring. Wi-Fi is available at this property which is free of charge for guests to use. 

Outside we've added a patio and self-contained camping amenities for our camping and camping pod guests.


If you like glamping, then you will love an Airstream! This unique holiday experience has all the fun of sleeping under the stars but without the set-up stress. Plus you are protected from all the elements that England and Wales can bring. The Airsteam comfortably sleeps two people in a double bed with bedding, heating, and USB charging points included for your comfort.

The Airstream is also equipped with a table and two chairs – perfect for dining al fresco in the warmer months. You are welcome to use hostel facilities including showers, toilets and self-catering kitchen (currently closed) during your stay.

Guests have year-round access to a shower shack and toilet shack, where you can freshen up after a sleeping under the stars.

These spacious tipi-like tents are fully kitted out with a double futon bed and three single futons plus all bedding and can sleep four or five people. They also have eco-friendly solar lighting and comfy bean bags for you to chill out on during the day plus bedside tables, a coffee table, rugs and soft flooring.  All bell tents include a BBQ fire pit.

Camping is sold per person and not per pitch. During the booking process, you will need to select the number of people that you wish to camp.

The YHA Manorbier campsite is a level field close to both the car park and the hostel. The field is surrounded by trees, hedges, willows and even a wildlife meadow and has stunning sea views. The campsite is peaceful and serene with plenty of space for children to play. Staying on the YHA Manorbier campsite means you get the best of both worlds - a great outdoor experience with all the superb new hostel facilities. Very popular with families, this campsite is also suitable for organised groups.

Guests have year-round access to 1 shower shack and 1 toilet shack, where you can freshen up after a sleeping under the stars.
There is a dedicated fire pit for campfires at the far end of the field.
Campers are allowed to have a BBQ as long as it is safe, supervised at all times and that care is taken to ensure no damage to the grass.

The main car park is just a minute's walk away from the campsite.

Important Information
There are no electrical hook-ups or water taps on the campsite. A torch is recommended for night time.

Camping pods

YHA Manorbier is now home to three large camping pods. If you like camping but you could do without the sun, wind or rain then this is the holiday for you! These wooden camping pods have all the fun of camping but are completely protected from the elements, and they're heated! You are welcome to use the camping facilities including showers, hairdryers, toilets and self-catering kitchen (currently closed) and lounge.

These camping pods make for a great family break and they have space for up to four people to sleep in - including one double bed and twin single beds. Mattresses and all bedding are included for your comfort. Each pod has its own individual decking area.

Guests have year-round access to 1 shower shack and 1 toilet shack, where you can freshen up after a sleeping under the stars.

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 or club mates join you. 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. You can check availability for Exclusive Hire on our dedicated website. There is also an Annex available to hire, as well as the main building.


Like camping but with a few added extras? These Landpods are the perfect alternative for sleeping under the stars. The Landpods sleep up to four people, on two double mattresses and a single futon mattress, which doubles up as the seating area. With LED lighting, these pods include all beds and 15 tog duvets. The Landpods do not 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.

All guests have full access to all of the hostel facilities, including the self-catering kitchen and bathrooms, so you can cook delicious meals, or freshen up after your night sleeping under the stars.
