Pant-yr-Athro International Hostel Reviews

A very pleasant eight days in a very welcoming hostel. Excellent hosts

A clean, well run establishment with all basic facilities provided. Pleasant TV lounge and well equipped kitchen. Adequate bathroom facilities. A few minuets walk from the Wales Coast Path makes this an excellent place to stop off for a night or three.


Simple and cheap

Can't say anything negative about the price to stay here -- it is very cheap. Rooms are very basic, cramped, with basic linen. Not much in the way of storage -- no drawers or wardrobe. Food is basic. Chips were not very nice at all. Tomato Ketchup appeared to be watered down with vinegar. The one major downside is the early closure of the bar -- Even on a Friday night with a packed bar (in excess of 20 people), the owner still forced everyone to drink up and vacate the bar, even though there is an apparent license for it to stay open till 3am. And as you're in the middle on nowhere, this effectively means its your bedtime. It wouldn't be so bad if you could purchase drinks for later consumption in the communal area -- but again, this isn't allowed. In conclusion, Reasonable accommodation for your money -- but a strange 'dictatorship like' approach to alcohol and staying up past midnight.

A place to crash

This place specialises in Stag dos. The accommodation is very basic and everything is on a budget. Twelve of us shared a bathroom with two, small sinks, two showers (ok), and two tiny loos. Four of us were in a ten foot square room with two bunk beds a few shelves and some limited hanging space. The decor is 1970s with a mexican theme mixed in with other African and Asian ornaments. The mattresses were lumpy and the sheets were all in one with the pillow cases obviously designed for convenience and certainly not for comfort. As a place to crash after a night on the town it is adequate and at 10 a bunk good value.

The virtually traffic free lanes are ideal for cycling. For the walker, Carmarthenshire offers coastal and country walks. Carmarthen town itself(the ancestrial town of "Merlin" is the oldest town in Wales and offers most social and cultural activities.
