When you enter the large local car park the 1st yha building you see is
not the hostel but if you've not been there before you wouldn't
know that. So you walk the path to it but the door is locked/closed
and has a sign on the inside of the glass saying 'yha this way'
with an arrow pointing left. Well the hostel itself is hidden from view
from the carpark entrance with bushes, so you look to the left and
assume the sign means go around the back, and with your luggage, but
there are no entrances etc... You think "what's going on
?". Tired from the journey there, confused, you decide to look
further along the carpark, and then you find the hostel behind bushes.
There should be a sign on the door of the first building saying
'This is not the Hostel. The Hostel is the next building to the
left' etc not just 'this way' and an arrow. After our stay,
as we were leaving in our car another person who had just parked up was
doing the same as we'd done and we had to explain to them, pointing
towards the bushes, and this person looked in the proferred direction
but just seeing bushes looked back to us again confused so we had to
repeat ourselves etc. So then, yha, put a clearer sign up ! And another
complaint is that although a yha member I was refused a members discount
on the room fee because I’d booked the room via Booking.com online.....
Bad ! What’s the point of my annual Direct Debit membership fee if no
discouint ? !
Relaxed and congenial atmosphere. Excellent location for exploring area
from Skomer up to St Davids eg.
