A delightful Welsh Backpackers that really captures the essence of what it is to be a great hostel. Hospitality at its best. Here are what some visitors have had to say;
“Fantastic place! It was an absolute god-send for us after a tough hike, just what we needed – superior hospitality, comfy beds, and cracking showers, all housed in distinctive decor and at an excellent price. Exactly like acquiring a lovely new home for a night, this place is my favourite kind of place in the world. A haven and no mistake!” – Sam O’Hara-Childs
“Wonderful little gem in Fishguard! Q was a terrific host showing us a beautiful sunset and some great card tricks. I will be sure to recommend this hostel to fellow travellers. Make sure to pop into the local pub “The Fishguard Arms” it’s a quaint little pub that just screams “Welsh history”. If you get a chance to chat with Q make sure you do so, you can guarantee a lovely chat!” -Grace Vogel
“After one night at Hamilton Lodge we decided to stay another! The bed was comfy and the host was so friendly. Q has put a lot of passion into creating a homely environment for people to come to. Finished to a high standard and has a great vibe. Highly recommend staying with Q at Hamilton Lodge”- Sam & Yuka UK & Japan
