While doing some wwoofing in Cornwall my wife and I took a weekend trip to newquay. Found this awesome little place by a twist of fate. I got everything I wanted here. Clean beds, a shower, and within walking distance of the ocean. Newquay itself is small (but very awesome) and this hostel will let you be close by to... More

Literally amazing. It's five mins from the main strip in Newquay with all the clubs and two minutes from sainsburys. Friendly people and cheap. Also go last week of June if you're 16 and all the clubs are open for under 18's😉😉 all the other people that were staying there were really nice as well so if you're coming on... More

Amenities - literally nothing only room was O.K. I think some people were sleeping as no registered tenants :| I have to agree with Dawn583 that it was the agilest place I have ever been!! On breakfast they offered us 3 types of cereals, milk, tea or coffee and chewing bread. That whole place was stinking badly so I wasn't... More

I spent 3 lovely nights in this hostel, I just really enjoyed the atmosphere and the fact to be really close from everything! I'll stay there for my next journey in Newquay, for sure! Don't change anything ;)

Stayed here on new years eve with 3 other people, can't complain for the price which would have been cheaper than a taxi, a 2 minute walk from town centre, definitely more of a hostel for teenagers/young adults, if you wanted a key for your door there was a £10 deposit which you would get back (if you didn't lose...

This was the worst place I have ever stayed and would A) never stay here again and B) not even subject it to my worst enemy. Upon arrival I was told that there was nowhere to lock anything away for myself, I would have to use the safe at reception or their office. There wasn't even a lock on my... More

This little place tucked away among terraced houses was just perfect for us - a group of around 10 student surfers - to stay for the weekend. On a heavily budgeted surfing trip, we wanted somewhere cosy and convenient, and this ticked all the boxes. Rooms are small - we shared one room between 10 of us. It came with... More

I have never stayed in a hostel before in my life, but as a recommendation from a friend who used to be a long termer here, me, her and another friend came down for just a weeks holiday. I was dubious at first! We pull up to 3 mid terrace houses painted green. In the front garden was some of... More

3 mins walk to Fistral beach, cheap, clean, friendly staff- Lorna and Dave. Friendly long termers. Great atmosphere, loved meal times in the communal kitchen- fun chaos! A place to hang your wetsuit and store your board. 2 mins walk to Sainsburys, 3 mins walk to the town centre. Overall, great hostel

Awesome relaxed atmosphere, great long termers, friendly staff, close to the bay and fistral beach. Kitchen facilities are good and the common room is the perfect place to relax and meet new people. This was the first place that felt like home to me after I started my travels, I will recommend it to anyone coming to stay in Newquay,... More
