This mighty fortress is largely intact and its endless passages, tunnels and stairways are great to explore. Make sure you don't miss the medieval life exhibitions.
Set in the attractive, bustling coastal town of Newport (in Pembrokeshire), this converted Victorian school is well-positioned for excellent walking, beaches and local attractions.
YHA Newport Pembrokeshire offers good quality, self-catering accommodation and the Newport Sands beach, local shops, pubs, coastal path and bird sanctuary are all within easy reach. The hostel also sits in the shadows of the Preseli Hills which have fantastic views from the top, great for walking holidays.

Accommodation at YHA Newport Pembrokeshire
This 24 bed Youth Hostel has a selection of dorm beds and private rooms available. The room break down is as follows:
2 x 2 bed rooms, 2 x 4 bed rooms, 2 x 6 bed rooms
Our hostel is self-catering only but you'll find plenty of equipment to use - even a rolling pin! There are two fridges, a freezer, two toasters, two kettles, two microwaves, two ovens and twelve hobs, plus lots of pots, pans and cutlery to use. Our facilities put some of the big hostels to shame, so bring your stuff and get cooking. There's a shop in town five minutes away and we sell some chocolatey treats at the hostel too.

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. 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: Walk the section of coastal path that runs in either direction, with great views on a clear day and fantastic wildlife - Pembrokeshire at its best! Or walk from YHA Newport Pembrokeshire to YHA Poppit Sands - named the New Zealand of the Northern Hemisphere, the northern end is the highest and most dramatic section of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path. Along the route you’ll encounter seriously impressive rock formations such as the cliff folds and collapsed cave around Ceibwr Bay. Beyond that, Cemaes Head is the best place to spot seal pups in autumn. Turn the corner and the Teifi Estuary comes in to view. The area’s home to bottlenose dolphins, porpoise and, for the night, you.
