Learning & Fun




The hostel itself is amazing!!! Is really big, comfortable and has many different areas to chill out alone or having a good time with friends. I worked at the reception and I really liked it. It’s three shifts per week and you have the option to do extra shifts if you want some extra money. It’s really good because you have time to travel around and get to know other places. The staff is amazing, the manager is lovely and there is a really good environment. I would definitely recommend it as a volunteer and as a guest. I had an amazing time there!!! 💙💙💙🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻




Volunteering at Prime was a very enjoyable and valuable experience. Working hours are fair and I had plenty of time to enjoy the day inside or outside the hostel. Bournemouth is a quiet city with a beautiful beach. The work team was amazing and I felt like I was in a big family all the time. Anna and Saul are very nice people, they welcomed me very well. I will miss the Tuesdays Music Exchange and Family Dinner nights. Thank you for the opportunity to meet such special people during this time.




The experience inside the hostel was extremely amazing. In addition to the fantastic location itself, all the people and energy the hostel has make you feel part of a big and beautiful family.
I would definitely recommend this experience to all travelers looking for slightly smaller cities in England and also amazing places and people to meet.




Staying at Prime Backpackers has been an amazing experience.
I would definitely repeat it.




Primebackpackers is one of the best places where I've been, so much that I came back for a second time. The team is amazing, the tasks are pretty simple and easy, you have enough free time to walk around the beautiful town, and make a lot of great memories, Saul and Anna are amazing hosts, making your experience unforgettable.
