I haven't stayed in a hostel for years and did not really know what to expect. I wanted somewhere to stay that was clean and safe for a two night stay with my 10 year old son. The hostel exceeded my expectations. The Falmouth Backpackers Lodge is charming and Judi is a welcoming and helpful host. Breakfast and hot drinks... More

This place was a great find, the location is very convenient as it is a short walk to the main street and just 2 minutes away from a beach. The rooms were very comfortable and the bathroom was very clean. Breakfast was supplied in the morning which consisted of bread and butter/jam. The owner is very friendly and very helpful.... More

Falmouth Lodge was a great find. We travelled with a small group of Sea Scouts, staying for two nights. When one of the party was unwell, the owner Judi went above an beyond to ensure that we got to the doctor before we headed onward on our trip. Would recommend to anyone travelling to Falmouth. There's a good atmosphere and... More

Five other friends and myself rented out a six bed dorm. It was a fantastic stay, extremely clean and comfortable. We had excellent views from our bedroom of Gylly beach which is only a few minutes walk away, and Judy was a fabulous host- she even posted back to me something that I left behind! We all look forward to... More

Myself and my girlfriend made this booking last minute for a wedding in the area. We were looking for a good location and cheap. This ticked both boxes perfectly. For £24 per night per person we managed to have a great double room. The room was spacious, clean and tidy and private. Our reception from the staff (or mum as... More

I stayed here for a week, but booked a room to myself as I am not used to hostel living and wanted my own space. This was more expensive than staying in a dorm, but worth it for the spacious room with cupboard and drawers, shelves, washbasin and, best of all, a sea view. The owner, Judi, was very pleasant...

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.
