The view was beautiful. The staff were very helpful and the event board was really useful.
The building needs renewal and the showers weren't working.
I was extremely impressed by the whole place. The staff were amazing and the food was great. I was with 2 of my grandchildren and it was marvellous for them to be able to make friends to play with. I have already recommended the hostel to my family.

sometimes dirty toilets and grubby floors in kitchen

The accomodation was excellent. All rooms very clean. Water pressure for showers needs improving. The breakfast was first class and well cooked. Good break from the south west coast path.
Swanage is an interesting town to visit and close to attractions in the hinterland. The YHA is well located to access these. Some staff very helpful (but others shouldn't be in the hospitality industry).
Swanage YHA needs to reinvent itself and be much more client focused. The days of only providing for young people are gone. The hospitality industry elsewhere is generally improving all the time but this establishment seems to be in a time warp because it doesn't seem to be client focused. The showers may save water but the tiny spray is inadequate - and not even a bench for clothes in the tiny shower cubicle. And why can't a towel be provided without having to be hired? Even the rooms are as minimalist as they can be. Breakfast time was more like a school canteen than a holiday establishment and wasn't at all efficient despite the numerous staff on duty. Enjoy you holiday and look for a nice B & B instead, and you will find it much better value for money.
Close location to town centre...good showers .... Clean bedding ... Clean WC areas .... Easy access.... Good sized car park.
Rooms were too warm, windows didn't open wide. Pillows hard. Carpet smelt.
Convenient place to stay for last night of a long walk from Minehead.
Problem more to do with other users who have little respect. Toilets not in clean condition. Doors banging late at night. Don't know what answer is to this
I liked the way I was received when I arrived. How the receptionist took the trouble not only to tell me about YHA Swanage but about the attractions locally.
I was only staying one night for the purpose of attending the WW1 service as Standard bearer for the Royal Marines Association and did not have time to dislike anything, that is if there was anything to dislike anyway!
I love the location is good with trees and close to the beach and i like their food you are allowed to take what u want as much as u want if they have it ofcos and you must have paid for breakfast too
I don't like the rooms they old with dirty rugs,no table,no tv,no net the most basic things in all hotels or hostels, even the shower has no control is just push. if is cold or hot u must use it like that.NO towel,if u need one u buy or rent can u believe that?They really need to make changes
Great location for the town and the beach. Lovely building. Good facilities
We were three friends in a 6-bedroomed room, so had lots of space. Beds comfy and linen crispy clean. Great view from the window. Toilets and showers close to bedroom.
Nothing really. Only comment would be the washbasin light in our bedroom didn't work, otherwise all fine.
Very good value for a hostel with polite and helpful staff, good value breakfast and pretty good facilities
Some Shower heads need replacing and windows need cleaning on the outside but otherwise pretty clean
we could book a room for a couple.
Looked very tired.
Clean and tidy.
Limited hot water. No water pressure. Disappointing shower facilities. When went for breakfast, no breakfast items available had to keep asking staff for items to be made/replaced e.g. no juice, coffee, toast, yoghurt or eggs etc. Limited knowledge of local area - when asked how long it would take to walk somewhere etc.
No pool table or table football as advertised.
Water cooler, kitchen facilities, friendly staff, parking facilities, and the location.
Lack of power sockets, lockable lockers, and bedside lights.
the car park, and meeting other ppl leisure room smelt rubbery,
The self-catering facilities, the dining room, the front room, the staff.
The room could have benefited from more power points (there were only two-both taken-and I had to ask reception to keep my phone for me while it charged), most of the shower facilities are cramped little spaces but there is at least one shower room that is a decent size (why can't you make them all like that one?). My main complaint is about the internet connection, so bad it was practically non-existent. It was all right when I first logged in in the evening, but in the morning it was simply impossible to connect. Also no connection in the rooms. I had stayed at better and more guest friendly YHA than this one.
The location meant that we could walk into town for all the facilities necessary.
2 minor points that I meant to report on leaving. The fitted sheet was not the right size for a single bed (I guess okay for the narrower bunk bed) and the shaver light did not work. Power point okay. Otherwise nothing to report. Thanks.
Not a lot
No tea coffee making facilities in room. No tv in rooms. Blocked and messy toilets. Noisy of a night from other guests.
Had a good sleep and air flow was good in room
It was not clean and most of the bathroom was not working
It was very cold in the TV room
The sea views from bedroom window. Great location for walking along the coast and also convenient for going out in Swanage in the evenings.
