Welsh Youth Hostels

Youth Hostels throughout Wales are celebrating YHA’s surprise top 5 ranking in the Best UK Hotel category in the recent Guardian, Observer and Readers' Travel Awards 2012. The youth hostelling charity, which has 29 Youth Hostels in Wales, was ranked at number 4 behind the luxury chain hotels, Sofitel, Hotel Du Vin & Bistro and Malmaison. Marriott was ranked at number 5 in the category.

YHA has worked hard to shed its former reputation of rickety bunk beds, sleeping bags and 1960s dormitories and has invested more than £19.5m in recent years in to its network of 150+ Youth Hostels throughout England and Wales creating great value, modern and comfortable accommodation. There are a huge variety of Youth Hostels in Wales based in coastal, rural and city centre locations and are considered as some of the charity’s most popular locations.

YHA is celebrating the win by offering people a special winter warmer offer for stays between 1 November 2012 and 28 February 2013. Four people can stay in a private family room and have an evening meal for only £44.95 for one night or only £84.50 for two nights. Even better, up to six people can take advantage of the offer for only an extra £10 per each additional person per night.

Many Youth Hostels now boast private en-suite rooms, restaurants and bars and some even have honeymoon suites! YHA London Central was even praised recently for its comfort, location, great value and facilities in the French edition of Cosmopolitan, the international ‘lifestylist’ magazine for women.

The offer is open to YHA members and non-members alike, however members will make an additional saving. To take advantage of the Winter Warmer offer visit or contact 01629 592700 and quote WARMER-001 when booking.
