Information from Hostelworld


Comfortable and modern facilities combined with the Welsh essence and tranquillity of former times.

Experiment the passionate lifestyle of Gaiman. Yr Hen Ffordd, the Welsh name for The old Road, is situated in a unique place only a few steps away from the main attractions of the town. It has renewed rooms with all the necessary services to make of your stay a pleasant experience.

The road on which this 103 year old house is located is of great historical value because, apart from being one of the oldest roads in the town, it is only a block away from some of main tourist attractions, such as the main square, Gaimans first house and the First School of Patagonia.

This old road surrounded by hills provides a unique setting for the history of the Welsh settlers in Patagonia.
