Welcome to our hostel

YHA Portland is a comfortable early Edwardian house on the Isle of Portland with spectacular views over the harbour and Lyme Bay. The island is part of the Jurassic Coast and is home to rare flora and fauna.

The majority of rooms contain bunk beds, and all rooms share bathroom facilities. There is a shared laundry, a dining room and barbecue area where guests can enjoy meals together.

Come for a traditional seaside break or your share of the action. YHA Portland has spectacular views over Lyme Bay and Portland Harbour. Chesil Beach is nearby, while award-winning Weymouth Beach is best for paddling and swimming. The Isle of Portland is the gateway to an array of activities like climbing, sailing, diving, wind surfing, sea kayaking and more. For night life go to nearby Weymouth.
