Tywi Valley and Dolgoch Youth Hostel
Tywi Valley and Dolgoch Youth Hostel
YHA are dumping this hostel in the autumn of 2007. It is the only habitable building for miles*! See LinkExternal link for information regarding saving this hostel. No other similar accommodation is available in the area.

The hostel is now being operated by the Elenydd Wilderness Hostels Trust. Grants have been agreed for considerable improvements to be made in the next few years. Bookings can still be made through the YHA. The above link gives the latest information.

*not any more; Nant-yr-Hwch has now been restored.

The last farmer who lived here, Huw Jones, tells the story: LinkExternal link
Dolgoch Youth Hostel
It will soon be noticed that reference to Dolgoch and its nearby companion hostel at Ty'n Cornel will disappear completely from all YHA publicity during May 2017. These, and some other basic traditional hostels no longer fit the YHA's money spinning glossy "holidays for kids" image. Young TRAVELLERS of limited means are no longer what the YHA wishes to encourage. Ty'n Cornel and Dolgoch are thriving and comfortable upland bunkhouse style hostels, open for most of the year and full booking information can be found on the Elenydd Wilderness Hostels website.

In the meantime, please do not be off by anything the YHA says if you have problems booking through 2017 and beyond. The Elenydd is a wonderful remote area for walking away from "the crowds".
