Tyncornel is a great little hostel in splendid Cambrian mountain scenery, at the head of the beautiful Doethie valley. There is excellent walking and cycling right from the front door: green rolling mountains, narrow twisting valleys that provide an ever-changing view . You may walk all day without meeting anyone.
The hostel has plenty of character. It's the most isolated hostel in Wales, and it provides a simple but comfortable welcome - see the photos!
This listing books a private room for up to 4 people. This room has 8 beds, but the booking is only for up to 4 people. Other listings book the whole hostel, or places in a shared dormitory.
There's no phone, TV, internet, or mobile signal, but you won't need them - you're here to enjoy the hostel in its beautiful surroundings. Come and get away from it all!
The hostel is owned and run by Elenydd Wilderness Hostels, a charitable trust staffed entirely by volunteers.
Shared indoor areas: common room (plenty of books, magazines, and games), self-cooking kitchen, electric shower, separate male/female washrooms and toilets.
