Redecorated in 2012, Dorset House is a warm and homely hostel with everything you need for a comfortable stay - huge lounge, free pool table, free unlimited Wi-Fi, DVDs, kitchen with balcony, heaters, laundry, luggage and cycle storage & free off-street car parking (on a 'first come first serve basis'). Our 5-bed dorms have single beds (no bunks!) and beds are fully made. Our 8-bed bunk rooms have sheets ready at the end of each bed. Late check-in is no problem at all and we offer a full travel and information desk.

From Dorset House, it's a 15-minute stroll to Cathedral Square; or walk along the river to other attractions such as the Botanic Gardens, museum, local art galleries and markets. Victoria St with its cafes & bars is just around
