Elenydd Wilderness Hostels - Independent Hostels in Mid Wales, UK

A real escape from it all.

Hostels located in the heart of the Cambrian Mountains, the last true wilderness in Wales

  • These former Y.H.A. Youth Hostels are both in a remote upland region of Mid Wales, where the cry of the red kite is more common than the sound of the car.
  • This is a land of rocky outcrops, forestry and meandering rivers; the Tywi being the best known, where you will experience a solitude almost impossible to find elsewhere in Wales, England or the UK.
  • The hostels/bunkhouses are perfect for individuals, couples, family breaks and groups.
  • You can also camp under our incredibly dark skies. Duke of Edinburgh's Award participants are offered a concessionary camping rate.
  • Dolgoch has 20 beds in 3 rooms sleeping 4, 6 and 10, Ty’n Cornel sleeps 16 in two rooms of 8 and a self-contained shepherd's hut.
  • Both hostels have wood burning stoves for cosy, fireside evenings.
  • Around the hostels in the Cambrian Mountains and across North and South Wales there is a wealth of things to do - walking and hiking on remote paths, cycling on quiet roads and forest tracks, star gazing in amazingly dark skies, exploring local places of interest or just enjoying a peaceful, tech free individual, group or family break.
  • We’re proud to have 5 star Tripadvisor ratings for both hostels.
  • Why not browse our Gallery to get a taste of why people love staying at our unique hostels?

We have Beds from £15 a night and Whole rooms from £50 a night
