Property Description

Historic Grade II listed Inn, the oldest in Dover, nestling in the shadow of Dover Castle behind the beach and just a short stroll from the Ferry port for boats to France and Europe.

Freshly converted into Dover Backpackers with a mix of en suite family rooms and youth hostel style bunks and a new downstairs 8 bed 'cyclist' dorm with room for 8 people and 8 cycles, inside safely right by your bunk.

A great place to wait for the ferry to France and as a result of being the 'last bar in Britain,' we have had the coolest of guests; 3 of the Beatles, all of the Rolling Stones, Sir Cliff Richard and actor Hugh Grant.
Check In: after 12:00
Check Out: before 12:00.

We are a 'Holiday Hostel' for genuine backpackers and travellers only, no children in mixed dorms.

Latest Review

" This hostel is extremely run down and under renovation. The staff were very nice, but that's the only positive thing I can say about this place unfortunately. The mattresses are unbearably uncomfortable, the dorm was too cold to sleep, the shower wasn't working and the ceiling was caving in. It was a very disappointing (and sleepless) stay here for me I'm afraid to say. I'm sure the place will be much better after the renovations are finished. "
