My friends and I went on a trip to Newquay this summer with the intention of surfing Fistral beach as much as possible, and for the money, I don’t think we could have done much better then the Base Lodge. It feels like Rob, who runs the lodge, really goes out of his way to make it a comfortable and... More

Arrived at Base to be greeted by Rob (the owner) who was very helpful and welcoming - he accommodated parking needs by showing us a roadside parking spot which meant there was no need to spend money in the carpark opposite! The Hostel was clean and tidy - the downstairs (Kitchen/ Chill area/ garden) was really chilled and where breakfast... More

Best breakfast ever had in a hostel! Value for money, good location and some nice features (i.e. bathroom). Not the largest rooms but it is in a super central terraced house and there is plenty of room in the basement communal area and garden. Surf hire good value and very close to multiple beaches + town. Guys working there were... More

Arrived at base on a stag do with 13 guys of different ages, the guys working were friendly and helpful, didn't mind us using communal areas for a few games. Breakfast was great, as were the shower facilities. The surf lesson was great fun, but watch out for the uphill walk back!!

About 12 of us (all boys) stayed here for a long weekend. The staff were particularly accommodating, especially given many other places wouldn't allow such a large number of people in one visit. The rooms were OK, not great but the location is excellent. A short walk to the pubs/clubs. Would recommend.

Stayed in the lodge 3 times now. I'm pretty well travelled and would say this is definitely the best hostel/lodge i've ever stayed at. The owner Rob is a top man and through my visits to the lodge, has become a very good friend of mine. Seriously recommend this place for a chilled out break any time of the year.... More

Just had another great weekend at base. Nice clean rooms, great breakfast and really good showers, location couldn't be better either. The on site wet suit on board hire was great and really good value too. Thanks guys :)

Couldn't ask for a better location or place to stay. Great facilities, the owner is a great host. There is a really good selection of fruit yoghurts and cereal for breakfast, perfect to keep you going for a day on the beach which is literally a stones throw away!! Right by a load of decent cafés and pubs too which... More

Perfect location, 3 minute walk to the centre of town, 5 minutes walk to the main Fistral beach. Very clean modern bathroom, decent free WiFi, great lounge space and kitchen, ample sized rooms. Rob and Dale are very friendly hosts and provide you with great discounts on surf hire and lessons. Would definitely go back

The base surf lodge has everything you need and more for a great surfing trip. Great chilled atmosphere and friendly service from Rob. Comfy beds and new modern bathroom along with free wifi and a great lounge area to chill out in the evening. Its location is fantastic with walking distance to town and even shorter walk to Fistral beach.... More
