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

Like a home away from home thanks to Lorna, Dave and Alfie :) always clean and tidy, veggies garden, walking distance to a few beaches, Kitchen, with tea cups. Plus a nice selection of videos, if that's what you're into. Nice blue sofa in the corner there. Nice tables and nice chairs and garden! You should go and stay there,... More

A great place for groups. Run by most lovely people who keep the communal areas very clean. Very lively so great for young people. Also well located for Fistral with board and suit storage. Common room makes it easy to sit together, also kitchen making trip cheaper

I wanted to step out of my comfort zone, travel alone and meet new people. This is a fantastic place to do so as the residents were really friendly, and, shortly after my arrival, asked me to join them on their night out. I enjoyed my stay so much I returned the following weekend! For the price you can't beat... More

super cool hostel, great vibe and friendly staff. Near supermarket, comfy sofa's, huge map of Cornwall, surfers and chicks everywhere! Good tv and video's for the rainy days, . Great place to stay out from the madness of town but only 2 mins walk there and 10 mins to the beach.
