Came down for one night last week during my daughter's Uni. audition. We think it's a great place. Ideally situated for the town and the Uni's are a few minutes drive away. We had a comfortable night and were made very welcome. Will certainly visit again.

We stayed here for a family half term holiday and thought the location, family room (at top of building) and welcome were all great. Just minutes from the beach on one side of peninsular and not much further to Maritime museum on the other, the positioning was ideal for family outings. Judy was helpful and informative and we liked her... More

large, well-built, clean, with all modern conveniences, affordably-priced, centrally located, home-like atmosphere, off-the-beaten track on cul-de-sac, yet minutes up from beach - thoroughly enjoyed the comfortable ambience provided & friendly, informative owner. Will go back.

We stayed at the Backpackers for three nights in a private ensuite double. The accommodation, on the top floor, was spacious, quiet and pleasant and excellent value compared with hotel and other self-catering accommodation. The owner maintains a laid back, friendly atmosphere. We appreciated the kitchen (with its Aga cooker) and common room on the ground floor and the fast... More

This hostel has a lovely welcoming host with good "green" ethics. The room was good, the facilities all fine, the homey atmosphere meant everyone in the hostel were open and sociable with each other. The kitchen may have been a tad small but it really didn't matter because there was everything you needed to cook a good meal and everyone... More

Thank you for the review - We can only apologise for the Spider Queen being less than vigilant on this occasion. But also want to say that our carpets are on track to be replaced this winter as well as the door lock query being under review for twin rooms, even tho, to our knowledge, it has never been a...

Stayed for 10 nights whilst waiting for my Uni accommodation to become available. It was a real home-from-home, and everyone from the owner to my fellow guests made me feel welcome. Spotlessly clean yet with a laid-back feel. There is a small but well equipped kitchen with Aga that saved me from living on expensive take-away food, and broadband wifi... More

7 of us in a small stuffy room no room to move around. Breakfast advertised as toast or cereal the bread was the cheapest of the cheap and the cereal was what others left behind! They advertised room as six people room but they had managed to get a camp bed in there as well!

We are sorry to hear this; we make every effort to accommodate our guests comfortably; and this includes making space for last minute visitors if we can. 7 in our 6/7 bed dorm. is occasional and we hope that most visitors would appreciate that that last person could be them one day. The ‘simple complimentary breakfast’ that we have always... More

I've stayed in my fair share of hostels and have to say this is a good-un. A warm welcome, laid back attitude along with comfy beds make this a great place to stay. The location in Falmouth is superb too. Highly recommend staying here.
