The manager was very friendly and helpful. The place was clean, well equipped and the communal areas well laid out and homely. The room itself was comfortable but slightly on the small side. Overall good value for money, the self catering facility makes it a cheap place to stay if you are on a limited budget. Good free wi-fi.

The host was extremely friendly and the hostel looks very nice. Our 4 people room would have been very tiny to actually share it with 4 people but otherwise the rooms were nice. The beds are really comfortable!

Hi thank you for your review and we are glad you had a good stay with us. Your stay was in a 3 bed female dorm. To all appearances it may look like a 4 bed dorm as there are 2 bunk beds in the room. We did away with the 4th bed a long time ago as the room was smaller than our standard 4 bed dorms, we removed the mattress and replaced the spare bottom bunk with a wooden cover for guests to place their luggage on, this enables more room for guest comfort. Many thanks Colin @ Bunkhouse Plus

Very clean hostel, although we were the only people here so to be expected! Free wifi is nice, but no soap! Can it cost so much to provide soap?

Hi. We are glad you had a great stay with us and we hope to see you again in the future. The subject of soap has come up before in reviews. We used to do this and had a major problem of soap being taken into showers, going missing etc. which meant we were replacing soap/towels throughout a day! So rather having to allow for a price increase in beds and on advice from our 'Visit England' assessor we replaced all soap with hygienic hand gel dispensers in all washrooms

We had a great coupe of nights here in Dec 2014, James (the receptionist) was really helpful and made us feel very welcome, the whole hostel was very clean and looked after, bed was comfortable (we stayed in room 2 which was a double en suite) and we had the whole place to ourselves on the first night! Its a bit of a walk into the busier part of town with bars & shops etc (took us 15 mins) but not too bad, and it was very quiet around the hostel at night.

Very clean and smart hostel offering good value for money. Some of the facilities ( heating, cooker) were not working very well, but staff were very polite, helpful and apologetic about it.

The room and ensuite was very clean and adequate, however rather too cramped. The internet access was very good and free, and it was good we were easily able to use one of their free parking permit. Thank you

Cheap and cheerful hostel near the seafront. We didn't use them but kitchen facilities looked good and everywhere was very clean. Bedroom was a little small but to be expected for the price and didn't cause us any problems.

Hi. We are pleased you had a great time with us and in Weymouth. Sorry to hear about your experience with our volunteer at the Bunkhouse. I have spoken regarding this and established the reasons why - We had a complaint from another guest regarding yourself and your friend (Borrowing) property not belonging to you, hence the disappointment with our staff. We are sure it was just a misunderstanding and we hope everyone continued to have a good holiday. Colin @ Bunkhouse Plus
