One of our most remote hostels, this former 18th Century inn is a beautiful rural retreat in the corner of the Brecon Beacons. It has spectacular views of the Sawdde Valley and trails lead to the legendary Llyn-y-Fan glacial lake, great for walking holidays.

YHA Llanddeusant has three areas for camping. The main area, the Youth Hostel garden, has a capacity for 10 tents and seating and tables for meals. Facing west, you can enjoy beautiful sunsets and views over Coed Pen Arthur and Tricrug across to the peak of the Black Mountain (Mynydd Du). As well as this, YHA Llanddeusant is in a Dark Skies area which means you can feast your eyes on countless constellations. There are another two areas which are also used for camping.

Hire the whole place

This hostel is occasionally made available for hire on an exclusive basis. This means that you can have the place to yourself and choose how many of your friends, family, club mates, etc., join you. We allocate availability for exclusive use in blocks, typically up to 90 days in the future. If you are looking for space to stay with us on a normal shared basis, and can’t see any availability three months or more into the future, then this hostel may be being held for Exclusive Hire. You can check availability for Exclusive Hire on our dedicated website, or use our live chat service for more information.

Self-Catering Facilities

The hostel is self-catering only. There is no shop on site and the nearest shops are seven miles away so come prepared.

Our self-catering kitchen has two big ovens with hobs, two toasters, lots of kettles, saucepans, plates, cafitieres, a mocha coffee maker if you fancy a nice coffee, large gas-fired BBQ, two microwaves and all the cutlery you'll need - including potato mashers!
