Very authentic beautiful house next to park. Quiet area but easy access to town. Great staff. One of best hostels in the world!


We had a great stay at Dorset House- such a homely, welcoming atmosphere. It was lovely not having bunk beds for a change! The kitchen was great and nice powerful showers.


Having only single beds instead of bunk beds is a bonus because you dont get disturbed, or you dont disturb others by having to climb on top to get to the top bink
