Overview

Experience the magic of Pembrokeshire with the breathtaking bays, beaches and hills which surround YHA St Davids. This rural retreat is a converted farmhouse at Whitesands Bay, one of Britain’s Blue Flag beaches, making it perfect for a cheap family seaside break full of coastal walks.

Swimming, surfing, coasteering, climbing, riding and walking – everything's here for a non-stop activity break or watersports holiday. When you stay in St Davids, don’t miss St Davids Cathedral (which makes St Davids the UK's smallest city) and St Non’s – a significant religious site, and plan in a visit to Ramsey Island, with its wealth of bird and sea life.

Why guests love YHA St Davids

  • Recently renovated beach-side hostel
  • Great for exploring the Pembrokeshire coast
  • Rustic farmhouse styling

Accommodation at YHA St Davids

Bed in a shared room

Dorms are not currently available. 

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.

Private rooms

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.

Landpods

These brand new Landpods, upgraded for 2019, are fully waterproof and sleep up to four adults. They are slightly elevated off the ground for a comfortable night’s sleep under the stars – you can even open the roof for a better view! With LED lighting these cosy pods include all beds and bedding. There is a table, bench and BBQ firepit outside so you can make the most of the great outdoors and dine al fresco.

The new larger Landpod sleeps up to 4 people, on two small double mattresses (one above the other) and a single futon mattress, which doubles up as the seating area. They’re even tall enough to stand up in! There is no heating in our Landpods.

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.

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.

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.

Volunteering

Volunteering with YHA is a fantastic way to have fun, learn new skills, boost your CV and travel to different places. We have a variety of different opportunities to choose from and volunteering roles to suit everyone.

The tasks are varied and in return you will meet some great people, who both work and stay in our hostels, as well as enjoying your time off discovering the local area and attractions.

This hostel is part of our Volunteer Managers programme. You can find out about becoming a Volunteer Manager and supporting our small hostels on our Volunteering site.

Meet the team

Manager recommends: For a change from the beach on your seaside break, climb Carn Llidi. The path starts from the hostel and the views from the top are breathtaking. Look out for welsh ponies and buzzards while you’re walking, and badgers in the evening. If you're looking for a surfing holiday, Whitesands Bay beach offers some sizable waves.

Or if you love wildlife, take a boat from St Justinian to Ramsey Island in spring. There’s an enjoyable 3.5-mile trail around the island so take a stroll and acquaint yourself with the wealth of local creatures. The towering cliffs to the west of the island are home to buzzards, ravens, razorbills, guillemots and kittiwakes.
