YHA Leominster was a workhouse of the Old Priory, a Benedictine Monastery that dates back to the 11th Century, and is now a well-equipped hostel. Come and stay to embrace the history of our surrounding area - we're just a 5 minute walk from the town centre and easily accessible by public transport. Leominster is situated in the Marches, the fiercely disputed borderlands between Wales and England, which have been fought over for centuries. We are at the heart of the Black and White Villages, whose style dates back to Tudor times and was famously adopted by the Victorians.
The walking and cycling in the area is excellent, and we have some maps available for sale or hire in the Youth Hostel. There are several National Trust properties nearby, along with museums, visitor centres and beautiful water gardens. You can visit the Queenswood and Leominster Country Park, or go for a round of golf at one of our local courses. If you enjoy your food and drink, sample the cheese at Monkland Cheese Dairy, visit us during the Ludlow or Herefordshire Food Festivals, or take the Cider Route, a 20 mile cycle tour through some of the best cider producing country in the UK.
We have 30 beds spread over 10 rooms, with one en-suite, disabled access room on the ground floor. The hostel also has an open plan dining room/lounge, a self-catering kitchen and a cosy quiet room. Have a look at our history and local information boards to get a taste of the area and our hostel's heritage.
Our well-equipped hostel is ideal for families, groups and individuals. We also offer excellent family facilities including double rooms, day access, games, high chairs, cots and baby bath.
4 x 2 bed, 4 x 4 bed and 2 x 3 bed (double with single bunk)
