About The Old School Hostel
The Old School Hostel offers 4 star quality accommodation at hard to beat prices.
We're comfortable and characterful...
The Old School is an ex YHA hostel opened in 1968 and closed by them in 2006. Now up and running as an independent we've undertaken a major refurbishment and have added a cosy lounge area, extra showers, private rooms and re carpeted and redecorated throughout.
Free internet access...
Stay in touch with friends and family with free Internet access in the lounge.
We're a great budget Bed and Breakfast option- B & B from £21 per person...
Our optional breakfast uses mostly organic, local and fair trade produce and is only £5 per person.
We're one of the greenest places to stay in wales
We recycle 90% of our waste, run on 100% renewable electricity and plant a tree for every booking made. Help create a forest for the future - come and stay!
We're a great get away from it all location...
It's a fast paced world out there but things move at a different speed down in our part of the country and you'll soon find yourself adjusting to 'Pembrokeshire time'. People say its like Cornwall used to be 30 years ago and even in high summer it's easy to escape the crowds and find a secluded beach or walk for miles on the cliff tops and meet hardly a soul. There are no traffic jams and locals will take time to have a chat with you in the shops. The hostel itself is a great place to relax - curl up with a good book on one of our comfy sofas in the lounge or enjoy chatting over a glass of red with friends in the stylish dining area with its beautiful Renie Macintosh chairs. If you're looking for somewhere to unwind after visiting one of our vibrant cities or just an escape from the stresses and strains of modern life for a while then head our way. You'll be made most welcome!
Reception is open for Check-In from 5pm to 10pm by the way. Please give us a call if you will arrive later than 9.30 pm.
All rooms have been recently decorated and have wash basins and reading lights next to the bed and storage facilities for guests belongings.
All bedding is provided and beds are made up prior to guests arrival. Towels are available for a small extra charge.
Our shared dormitory accommodation is mixed sex. Rooms have bunk beds and the maximum number or guests per room is 6. Most rooms have an en-suite shower.
Our double rooms comprise a private room with one bed for two persons. Some of the beds are 4 feet wide, a little narrower than a standard British bed. Please contact us if you require a standard size double. Most of our double rooms have an en-suite shower.

We're close to some of the most breathtaking scenery in the world...
We're situated in a stunning National Park and are just a short stroll from the world famous Pembrokeshire Coast Path.
We're 15 minutes away from St. Davids and some lovely beaches are nearby...
Renowned for its beautiful and ancient cathedral and relaxed, laid back atmosphere, minuscule St. Davids, the smallest city in Wales is only a short drive away and there are regular buses too. Famous Whitesands Bay, one of the best beaches in South Wales is about a 20 minute drive from us. Whitesands is a well loved surfing beach and great for families too. There are also some lovely secluded sandy bays on our stretch of coast, some of which are only accessible on foot.
We are a short stroll from the village pub and a delightful cafe/gallery...
We're in the centre of Trefin, an attractive cliff top village about half way between St. Davids and the ferry port of Fishguard/Goodwick. Mike and Meriel run The Ship, our congenial local pub. Lunch times and evenings 7 days a week they serve up hearty portions of good value pub grub including favorites like Pembrokeshire pork and leek sausages and steak and ale pie.
