I stayed several times and all of them I had a good experience. Staff is friendly and helpful. The place has a cool vibe and a surfing atmosphere. The breakfast that is provided is brilliant. The bar area is the social hub and the prices on it are cheap. The hostel has a great location near the beaches, shops and... More

We stayed for 3 nights in a double ensuite in June at a rate of £25pppn on the recommendation from a friend. The staff were friendly and welcoming and were available to chat about the surf etc. We were shown to our room on the top floor with an ensuite which had a great view. The smell of weed hits...

MattsSurfLodge1, Owner at Matt's Surf Lodge, responded to this review

Sorry to hear you were unhappy, first things first.... Your allegation of "smell of weed" is very serious and smoking of any kind in the Lodge is a criminal offence, notices are in place and staff are trained to always alert the Police immediately. All bedrooms have highly sensitive tamper-proof smoke alarms, so we hope you were mistaken. On investigating... More

We stayed in an en suite seaview room which was reasonably sized with a slightly smaller bathroom but for what we paid definitely can't complain! There was a mixup on arrival about room rates - but the rates we'd been quoted over the phone were more expensive so again happy customers! The whole lodge has a friendly relaxed feel, staff...

Went to Newquay to surf and seriously thought of staying there for longer, mostly because of Matt's surf lodge. The hostel is clean and in a good position,it has a nice chill out area with pool/table tennis table and the atmosphere was incredibly homely. Staff (especially James, who put a genuine effort into relating with every guest at the hostel... More

Its a short walk to the beach, you can bring your boards inside and every one is friendly. After 2 days a couple of other guys even let us borrow their surf boards! such... More

We went to Matt's surf lodge for a post GCSE holiday with 6 girls. From the start the staff were welcoming and very helpful (even carrying our VERY heavy suitcases up two flights of stairs!). We loved the chilled out lounge area where you were able talk to other guests. Our room had a lovely sea view and enough storage... More

If you want a 4* hotel, I suggest you book a 4* hotel. If you want good prices, friendly staff and a relaxed atmosphere then Matt's is the place. I've stayed here several times and never had a bad experience, I would highly recommend it, I've stayed a several other lodges in Newquay and they dont even come close despite... More
