I spent 2 nights here just before the Easter holidays 2017. The views from the front bedroom are good the showers fine, the lounge very pleasant and the cooking area well organised. The house is old and spacious but has recently been refurbished. There is a lot of space outside - although it was a bit cool to use it...

Fantastic place to stay whilst you are on Portland. Recently had a refurb and so the whole place has a fresh feel. The showers are clean and warm and the water is hot. Cooked breakfasts are really tasty ands all the staff are friendly, especially the manager who I think was called Angie. We camped in the sloping garden with...

Thank you so much for the positive review. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us and you coped with the sloping garden. People often ask why we don't level it off, but there are hidden secrets beneath that prevents us from doing so! We too appreciate the amazing location on this beautiful Isle, with its spectacular...

I was staying with my daughter who is 13. She has never been to a YHA hostel before and was a little apprehensive especially since we arrived in the dark and she was hungry. Just before we arrived, we got a phone call just to make sure we know that we needed to arrive before 9. This made us feel...

Hostel very quiet and a bit of decorating going on! Angie at the hostel clearly runs this place very well and takes alot of care in making sure her guests are happy. Was made to feel very welcome and given good recommendations for things to do. Breakfast was great. Rooms and showers all super clean.

I stayed in the YHA Portland for two nights in October. I walked from the train station in Weymouth. It is an excellent walk along the Rodwell Trail and I recommend it highly. I stopped at an old castle that used to belong to Henry Vlll. I understand it was something of a holiday home for the King, he used...

Can't recommend enough. Lovely, warm staff make sure you get the most out of your stay. Facilities and rooms are spotless, adding to the wonderful stay. I was only there for 3 nights, but would advise anyone I knew to use this place; whether they're used to YHA or not.

Myself and friends have stayed here a number of times over the last few years when attending sailing events in Weymouth. The staff have always been very welcoming and willing to help. Absolutely fantastic value and a lovely location. We always look forward to staying and would definitely recommend it as our favorite accommodation in Weymouth and Portland!

Thank you for your great review. Sorry about the plug socket, we have re-sited some of the bunks to accommodate the larger ones so I will ensure that the sockets are fully accessible. I will make sure that all the team see your feedback as we all really do appreciate it. Thanks again and we hope to welcome you again...
