This was a surfing trip for four lads and couldn't have had a better time! Great rooms, great bar, great food, great price, great location, great staff, clean. Super chilled out place, yet great atmosphere at night. Couldn't fault it to be honest! Do your self a favour and visit.

We stayed here with four Dutch girls during our Cornwall trip. It was a very nice place to stay, we even got an upgrade to a private room! The bunkbeds were comfortable, for a hostel, the room was relatively clean. All staff members made us feel at home and took care of us. It is highly recommended to people looking... More

Perfect place to stay in Newquay if your planning on a lads weekend/stag/hen do etc. etc. 2 minute walk from all the bars & restaurants and another few minutes to a few beaches where you can surf. For a hostel it was really clean, the bar and pool area is a good place to start a night out, the drinks... More

This hostel was brilliant. It was exactly what we needed for this group weekend away for 12 of us! On maps it looks far away from everything but it was only a 5 minute walk to the beach and central - which is where all the clubs are. Same as the beach! Gerry was so helpful and made sure we... More

Me and my friend becca, rang up and spoke to Gerry (manager) who was extremely helpful and friendly to book our stay. When we arrived we was greeted by Trevor and Jamie who also work here and have made our stay very enjoyable. The rooms are basic but perfect for what we were looking for. The cleanliness of the place... More

This was one of the most amazing youth hostel. We had the idea that it would not be as good as we thought because we are 17 and would not be able to go clubbing. That aside the people that work here make your time worthwhile. Not only are the prices good, the staff are so helpful. Jamie was a... More

A group of eleven of us stayed this weekend just gone and we had a brilliant weekend. The rooms are slightly small but it's excellent value for money and in a prime location a minutes walk from the town. The staff are all very friendly in particular the owner Gerry who couldn't do enough for us and was very welcoming... More

Upon first contact it was clear Gerry & Tim would be able to cater for everything we were looking for and then some. The booking process was simple and the owner Gerry made every effort to stay in touch as the... More
