A group of 40 of us from Exeter university surf club stayed here for 2 nights in February and despite our numbers the staff handled us exceptionally. The whole weekend logistically was made a doddle by the staff as they allocated everyone to their rooms proficiently and cooked us all some splendid meals! All round the hostel is a cracking...

Stayed New Years eve and couldn't have had a better stay. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and welcoming. The rooms were clean and well kept. Had a good laugh in the bar befor we went out with the staff. An old School attitude and a good level of trust made this the best new year for a wile!... More

A university surf trip with Huddersfield and great accommodation for a large group of people. Amazing staff who helped us sort out meals throughout the weekend and the bar was a great place to all have a few drinks after a long day in the water. Will definitely be back next year! Cheers!

I went to Newquay at the start of November with 2 other friends, we are aged 21 and 22. Our girls weekend in Newquay started terribly. We had booked to stay at Reef Surf Lodge, upon arriving at Reef we where absolutely mortified with the lodge and our room. We abruptly left and agreed we needed somewhere new to stay.... More

Was part of the surf club group with Exeter, and The Escape was ideal. Good room's, excellent cooked breakfast (just what was needed!) and some of the best staff and organisation I've seen at any hostel. Cheers Jerry!

We've used this hostel 3 times now and Gerry and his staff have never disappointed us. Great food, great rooms, great service and best of all, a cheap bar! Being so close to Fistral and Towan makes it a great place to stay for some decent surfing! You can't go wrong with this place, especially big student groups. We'll no... More

Having used The Escape twice now to host our biggest annual weekender surf adventure to Newquay, Exeter Uni Surf Club can safely say that this place rocks and is ideal for students and groups of young adults. Comfy beds, scrummy cooked breakfast, friendly/helpful staff, and a top quality bar to chill out in, its been perfect in catering for our... More

Went for my birthday. Jerry (owner) is really welcoming. It's a great lodge. I've been to pretty much all of them now and I vote this one the best. It's also in a good location with free parking. The bar is also very cheap and opens to 4am great for pre and post drinks :)
