Chris and Sue Story
Originally with just 2 draughty dormitories open to the rafters, outdoor loos and no showers the youth hostel had a major refurbishment in the early nineties when an upstairs floor was added to accommodate 6 new bedrooms.
It was a dream come true for us when we came across it on our travels and a few months later found ourselves signing a lease as the new tenants. We had our very own hostel to play with!
Still, we did wonder quite what we had taken on when we moved in one dark February day and looked around the tired and unloved place. It had become pretty run down, needed a bit more than just some TLC and the banks wouldn’t lend us any money.
Now, seven years later we’ve finally completed all the refurbishments we planned though we still like to tinker with improving things. We hope that we’ve created something a bit special but haven’t lost sight of the core values of those pioneering folk who started the hostel movement back in the 1930s.
They set out to provide inexpensive, safe and welcoming places to stay so people could explore for themselves some of the most beautiful countryside Britain has to offer.
We like to think that here in the Old School Hostel in the far west of lovely Pembrokeshire their spirit lives on.
