About YHA Swanage
For a cheap family break, with stunning coastal scenery, Swanage is ideal. This elegant Victorian villa offers Jurassic Coast accommodation with fine views across Swanage Bay and is minutes from a safe, sandy Blue Flag beach for your seaside break. Keep an eye out for dinosaur footprints along this stretch of Jurassic Coast! The hostel is just a few minutes walk from the town centre and you’ll find excellent food available in the licensed restaurant. Generally, school trip groups visit during the week, but we’re also extremely popular with individuals and families for weekend breaks and during the holidays.
This property is also available for Exclusive Hire during the winter months. Click here for more details.
YHA members can enjoy free Wi-Fi in social areas at YHA Swanage!
