Reviewed 17 January 2017

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...

Excellent service, friendly staff and efficient at all times. Meal in the morning and the breakfast were excellent with plenty of food for seconds for the more hungry. Would visit again and use this facility as they were really accommodating and flexible,

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!

Brilliant value for money. The drying room dries kit and the showers are hot and powerful. very friendly staff and good options on breakfast. we had one of the rooms overlooking the back garden which was bright and comfortable. we didnt find the plug socket until just before we left so look carefully.

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...

I stayed at YHA Portland whilst I was sailing in the harbour. I requested breakfast, lunch and dinner, it was superb! The drying room was really useful for wet kit and the lounge had a lovely atmosphere with everyone chatting to each other. Would recommend to anyone staying on the island or looking to do activities near by!

Plenty to do in the surrounding area, and only a short walk to local pubs and restaurants - some good recommendations from the staff too. Most importantly the bedrooms, breakfast area and common rooms were all very clean, and after a good days walking and cycling the added bonus of a YHA hot and strong shower should never be underestimated....
