My time at baggies was an absolute blast. The 2 months flew by and before I knew it was already my last day. The hostel is incredibly nice, definitely one of the nicest ones I have stayed at over my 6 months of travel throughout Europe. The location is more than ideal with everything you need in walking distance (grocery stores, shopping, beach, pub and clubs). Can’t forget the tv room where most of us would spend our nights binge watching Netflix. From all the staff to the manager, Saul, everyone was incredibly nice. Keep off the fast food Saul! Loved my time at baggies and plan to come back.

Baggies is the best hostel !!! Andre is a very nice guy and he always cares about you. The team is awesome too, I'll miss everyone!❤
The tasks are very easy and you have a lot of free time to do whatever you want to. The hostel is located in an excellent area, just a few minutes from the beach, pubs, and clubs.
If you want an excellent place with everything you need to have fun, Bournemouth is for you.
Thanks for everything!

If you are looking for a nice British town with all nice people, lots of students and relaxing tourism at the beach this is it. Personally the best experience that I could ever wish to start knowing uk. Definitely coming back to know it all again in summertime days. Great management, installations and staff! I learned a lot! Thanks for including me Baggies!
