Thank you so much
It was really nice, the card machine was down when I arrive and I didn't have any cash. They were kind enough to allow me to check in and pay later in the day after I was able to get cash back at the local pub. They also helped me organise a taxi to work the next day as I didn't know the area and my phone was having signal problems. Would highly recommend to anyone who is travelling and would like a simple room in a beautiful location.

Excellent hostel by sea
Amazing location, friendly staff, clean and tidy hostel - would thoroughly recommend this YHA to anyone. Being situated in an old lifeboat station you are right on the coast with lovely views and sounds of the sea with benches outside or comfortable sitting room with picture windows.

Fabulous settiing
This is a perfect place to base yourself for a stay on the Gower. Very affordable and comfortable. The main lounge has huge Windows that look out to sea with comfy couches for a rainy day or evening reading. Lots of books on the history and geography of the area. Kitchen is available for guests. The bunk bed was actually extremely comfortable. Diane and Martin, who run the place are just lovely and extremely helpful. We really enjoyed our stay. Just one note: watch out for creepy crawlies in clothes and such as they are abundant in this corner of the world.
