Top tips for finding Bournemouth hostel deals
Price is the main advantage of staying in a hostel in Bournemouth, which is otherwise known for its expensive boutique hotels and seaside guesthouses. Travelers who are happy to sleep in more basic accommodations can pick from a range of hostels that will allow them to explore this seaside town on a budget. Hostels can also be convenient for those wishing to visit the shopping centers and entertainment venues located at a distance from the beachfront.
Most of the best hostels in Bournemouth are located in the city center, which is a short walk (around 9 min) or bus ride (approx. 11 min) from the beach and pier. Although this means that travelers won’t be able to enjoy sea views from their accommodation, they will find themselves well positioned for a number of amenities, including shops, bars, restaurants, casinos, and other entertainment venues. Hostels like Prime Backpackers are also conveniently located for several transportation links, including city bus stops and the railway station (around 1.2 mi away).
A hostel in Bournemouth could be a great option for a group wishing to stay together in the city. This is especially true of groups celebrating a bachelor or bachelorette party, as many hotels do not allow such groups to stay. Several options, such as Prime Backpackers and Bunkhouse Bournemouth, offer group-friendly accommodations. Both have a range of dormitory room sizes available, Bunkhouse Bournemouth offering rooms to sleep up to 12 people on bunk beds in the same room.
While many of the city’s hostels only offer dormitory rooms, which are best suited to solo or group travelers visiting Bournemouth, a couple looking for a hostel may prefer the option of a budget property such as the Lynden Court Hotel. In addition to small dormitory rooms, this hostel offers a selection of twin and double rooms with private bathrooms for added privacy.
If you’re looking for a cheap hostel in Bournemouth, you should consider going during the low season. You’ll generally find lower-priced hostels in Bournemouth in February and December.
Hostel room prices vary depending on many factors but you’ll likely find the best hostel deals in Bournemouth if you stay on a Tuesday. The most expensive day for hostel bookings is Sunday.
If you want to ensure you grab a bargain, try to book more than 90 days before your stay to get the best price for a Bournemouth hostel.
