You cannot visit the Isle of Wight and not see the iconic Needles – a series of chalk stacks which protrude into the sea. The view from the chalky cliffs is amazing!

The beaches and villages all have pubs, cafes, coffee shops and restaurants, for guests to grab a bite to eat and relax after a day’s exploring the beautiful area.

History

Built in 1862 as a private house, this Isle of Wight property traded as 'Hurst Hill Hotel' from the 1960s. It was purchased by YHA in 1975 and opened by Lord Mountbatten. In 2012, YHA Totland became an Enterprise hostel. Its classroom was added in 2016, with three new en-suite bedrooms folowing in 2020. A further six en-suite bedrooms were added in 2022.

Meet the team

We are a small team here on the Isle of Wight - usually four of us: Bob, Ed, Jen and Felix. We do everything here, looking after you from when you book, when you arrive, to answering any of your questions at reception. We provide cooked breakfasts, packed lunches for you to take with you on picnics, evening meals for you to come back to at the end of a busy day. To cap off a perfect day, we’ll serve you a night cap or two from our bar, the 'Mermaid Bar'.

Managers recommends: Our traditional seaside desserts, Banana Splits and Knickerbockerglories are the best! Our Gin Bar, with over 100 gins is pretty cool - we like to call it our 'Ginporium'.
