The hostel is in a good position for Lulworth Cove, Durdle Door and walks along the Coastal Path. There are a few buses which can be used to provide linear walks. The people in charge do what they can but the hostel really needs extension to meet demand. I was there the week before the Easter holidays and it was...

Thank you for your review. The week before Easter was part of the school holidays for some areas & we do tend to be a very busy hostel during the peak periods however most people seem to enjoy the sociable atmosphere & friendliness of our hostel. I have noted your comments but unfortunately it wouldn't be possible for the hostel...

Came the other week just for a couple nights and enjoyed the hostel. It was pretty quiet as it was off season time but the staff were very friendly and helpful. Nice kitchen where you can do all cooking. Bedrooms were nice and clean and so were the bathrooms with lovely hot water. Really enjoyed everything!

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...

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...

Thank you for your comments, all our permanent staff are local so I'm surprised they didn't know about the range walks / opening times.. we'll have a training session! Glad you enjoyed it anyway & hope to see you again soon.

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...

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...

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 -...

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...

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.
