Self catering International hostel in Camarthenshire

Llansteffan is a beautiful, quaint village set at the tip of the Towi River and Carmarthen Bay. The sandy beaches nestling below the castle offer sun bathing and relaxation. The virtually traffic free country lanes make this area ideal for cycling. For the walker, the hostel is on the Wales Coastal Path.

Carmarthen, Wales' oldest city and ancestral home to Merlin of King Arthur's legends, offers most social and cultural activities.

Facilities include self-catering kitchen, dining area, TV lounge, showers, free WiFi, and free parking. The two Mexican bars offer pool, darts, TV, weekly drink specials and food (eat-in or take-out).

Unique hostel on the Wales Coast Path

February 22nd 2020

Walkers take note. Just 5 mins off the Wales Coast Path a warm welcome, a well stocked bar, squishy sofas and an evening meal (if you want one) await you.

What more could you want?  Perhaps the choice of a private room or a dorm, central heating, beds made up and all bedding provided, hots showers, sturdy wooden bunks that don’t squeak, WiFi and that real home from home feel.  Well Pantyrathro International Hostel has it all.  The icing on the cake is the quirky Mexican theme running through the hostel.
