Stayed for a weekend with my family and was so lovely. Judy, the owner is a fun and very gracious host. Just a short walk to town. A very nice beach is only about 3 minutes walk. Highly recommended. Thank you Judy! I will be back :-)

This is my first review on trip adviser and I have decided to write it as I was so impressed with Falmouth Lodge Backpackers I wanted to spread the word. We were a group of 11 blokes and found it difficult to get anywhere to stay in or around Falmouth. I decided to give Falmouth Lodge Backpackers a ring and... More

Great place to stay on a budget in Falmouth, 5 minutes from the beach, 10 minutes into town (or 40 minutes via the scenic route round the headland if you want to work up an appetite first!). Judi is a great host and source of information. Toast, marmalade and unlimited tea very welcome.

Overall good stay. Room is clean, facilities are great and the owner is very friendly. The communication prior to the stay warm was prompt and welcoming. They even provide you with simple toasts with tea or coffee to start your day. I certainlyenjoyed my time there.

This was my third stay with Judi at the Backpackers Lodge- but my first time in one of the shared dorms. We received a very friendly welcome from the owner and made to feel instantly at home and relaxed. The dorm room was very comfortable and clean- even though we were sharing with 4 men :) I really can't praise... More

I stayed at the Falmouth Lodge Backpackers as I sought refuge from renovations. My huge thanks to Judi who runs an absolutely lovely, warm and welcoming lodge. Very relaxed, clean and tidy and feels like a home from home. I highly recommend it.

Every experience is personal but that's the best thing about this place. It is personal, relaxed & felt like home to me. Chris (the guy running the place in Judi's absence) is an absolute legend, could not meet a nicer guy & made me feel like a friend right from the start. The rooms & bathrooms are clean, the lounge...
