A delightful hostel. Hidden away in West Lulworth away from the busy centre. A clean and well organised place to stay. Great location for coastal path walkers just up the road from Lulworth range walks. I had dinner and breakfast and it was really good food. Good value for money and they provide packed lunch which is ideal before heading... More

Just had a wonderful 2 night stay at this hostel. Staff lovely, really friendly atmosphere, super clean and great location. No ensuite rooms but good shower and bathroom facilities. Only 7 bedrooms so wonderfully personal.

Lovely hostel, good self catering facilities, excellent location, bike shed had just enough space for 4 bikes -as had tables and chairs from recently refurbed dining room! Staff need to be up todate on whether MOD Range walks are open or closed as we were given wrong information. As a consequence we walked on the coast in the other direction... More

This YHA is in a beautiful location with sheep bleating on the hills behind. An excellent base for walking the spectacular coast line. The kitchen is reasonably well equipped and clean. Not enough comfy chairs for all if the hostel is busy, but lots of tables and benches. Dim central light in bedrooms ensures a torch is a must for... More

Thank you for your comments, normally it's exceptionally quiet here during the night, sheep notwithstanding! However, we do now stock ear plugs in case light sleepers have the occasional issue. The ceilings in the bedrooms were scheduled for redecoration over the summer, this was completed last month and new curtains have been hung too. It is difficult to get the... More

The hostel is in a lovely location, Accommodation is basic as one expects from the YHA though is kept scrupulously clean and is well equipped. The manager and staff could not be more friendly and capable, indeed they make the place special. I extended my stay and will visit again. If you want luxury this is not for you -... More

I see no point in the reviews that criticize the utilitarian 'school hut' look of the building. Not all YHAs are fortunate enough to be housed in old castles and follies. And in fact the prefab nature of the Lulworth YHA is the reason it is so warm and easy to keep clean. Even on a Sunday night in the... More

Is a rather small and cramp yha if you have it exclusively. One main area with sofa tables and kitchen. Makes for a confined space. Rooms ok. Certainly one of the older less invested hostels. The hostels location is great for the cove and close to a great cider pub.

Modernised 1960s prefab building situated on the outskirts of the village and about a mile or so from the cove. Parking on-site. Staff friendly, welcoming and efficient. Building is generally in good condition and has seen recent improvements, although some parts still seem to be stuck in a mid 20th century time warp. Dorms basic but clean and comfy. Washrooms...
