Stayed in a group of 14 for a Stag-Do on Saturday night. The Lazy Shark exceeded our expectations and it was by far the best value accommodation in Bournemouth. The town centre is a short and cheap bus journey away, and the taxi back only cost £10 in the early hours of the morning. The shower had good pressure/temperature and... More

Myself and a group of friends *attempted* to stay here over the weekend of the Bournemouth 7s festival (end of May 2011). We booked beds for all 13 members of our party and paid nearly all of our deposit in one go, having been told we could wait a little while to pay the remaining amount. However, when we rang... More

Dont be alarmed when exiting Pokesdown station when you see hilberlies and too many rundown cafe/restaurants and antique shops, this hostel makes up for it. This is a great hostel as it has a great bar and restaurant with it, its just a pity that it is not closer to Bournemouth central and that its the only hostel in Bournemouth!... More
