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

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

After staying here for 2 week breaks on my own this place has become somewhere that in my mind i'll have to keep returning too, the facilities for the price paid were unbelievable at first, a large toilet/shower block which includes a sauna at a cheap rate of £1 for half an hour, adjoining the toilet/shower block is a large...
