Accommodation at YHA Isle of Wight Totland

Bed in a shared room

Dorms are not currently available. 

Dorm rooms have multiple beds, are typically more affordable than private rooms, and shared with other people who may not be travelling together. A typical shared room includes bunk beds, a reading light and a storage cupboard for each guest, secured by a padlock if required.

Children aged between 12 and 15 can stay in dorm rooms as long as an adult of the same gender accompanies them.

Some dorms may be en-suites, meaning that they have a bathroom in the room that you would be sharing with the other people in your dorm.

Private rooms

Don't fancy sharing a room? Private rooms typically include a storage cupboard for each bed, secured by a padlock if required, a reading light and a wash hand basin. Shared shower and toilet facilities are located near to the room.

Hire the whole place

This hostel is available for hire on an exclusive basis. This means that you can have the place to yourself and choose how many of your friends, family, club mates, etc., join you.

We allocate availability for exclusive use in blocks, typically up to 90 days in the future. If you are looking for space to stay with us on a normal shared basis, and can’t see any availability three months or more into the future, then this hostel may be being held for Exclusive Hire.

History

Built in the 1860's as the Hurst Hill Hotel, YHA Totland was bought to bridge the gap of hostels west of the Isle of Wight. This was around the time that YHA opened a set of smaller temporary hostels to cater for summer visitors.

Meet the team

Hi folks, we are a small team, here on the Isle of Wight, usually 4 of us, Bob, Ed, Jen & Felix. We do everything here, we look after you from when you book, from when you arrive, to answering any of your questions you can throw our way 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 recommendations: 

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”.
