Most volunteers stay in the purpose built Minffordd Hostel – it is situated close to both the FR and National Railway (Arriva Wales) stations.
Minffordd Hostel is split into 5 modules and in total it will sleep some 42 volunteers. Rates vary on whether you are an FR Society member/non member and/or on a working visit. The facilities are excellent by anyone’s stretch of the imagination.
Each module has its own fully equipped kitchen and storage facilities. There is also a combined lounge and eating area. There are two shower/washrooms per module and the two-person rooms have a sink provided.
Each module will sleep 8 people in three rooms, with the exception of module 6 which sleeps 6 people in 2 x twin rooms and 1 × 2 bunk room (we charge a slightly higher rate for this module). There are three rooms for sleeping. 2 × 2 bunkbeds and 1 × 4 bunkbeds. Module 6 is 2 × 4 Beds and 1 × 2 Bed. On the top floor of the Hostel is a meeting room/library quiet room and below is a communal lounge which has free satellite television, DVD player and Video Player. Plus a tea and coffee bar.
Wireless internet access is available throughout the hostel for a small set-up charge. Please see the Warden on-site for details.
Laundry facilities are provided on the ground floor, with a small charge. The Warden oversees the communal areas of the hostel but living areas are the responsibility of the residents.
