On the approach I turned off the tarmac onto what looks like gravel. As I progressed I began to notice that craters were appearing, making for an up-and down-and slightly-sea-sick feel in the car. Through the furze the horizon grew steadily closer until I realised that the cliffs were fast approaching, and then, just as I thought the road would... More

A group of university friends and I stopped here on a walking holiday - incredibly friendly people running it, beautiful surroundings (we ate outside looking over the surrounding cliffs) and great facilities for cooking, chilling out and sleeping. We had a really lovely night!

Came here as a group of students backpacking the South West Coast Path. Hostel wardens were really friendly and tolerant of our youthful excitement. The hostel is a mile's walk from Tintagel but worth the distance for the views. Building is all on one storey and a bit of a rabbit warren at first but we quickly got used to... More

We stayed in a private room for 3 nights; the location is just great, perfect views and a short walk into Tintagel. We did a 12 mile walk to Boscastle and back which was really lovely. The kitchen was well equipped with a good selection of utensils and pans, fridge space was a bit of a squash but we all... More

This place is stunning. Excellent location, within easy reach of Tintagel village and castle. Simple but cosy accommodation, good kitchen and dining room, but best is dining outside with the ocean view. I loved everyminute of my stay. Good location for coastal walking, too. Drivers be prepared to drive on some rough surface.

A great hostel with good enough facilities. We hired the whole place with friends for a really fun weekend. The kitchen facilities were sufficient to cook for 20 or so. There are 4 bunk rooms, 2 for 4 and 2 for 6. The position on top of the cliff is wonderful and it is only a short walk to Tintagel... More

This is wonderfully placed, right on the South-West Coast Path. It is completely isolated but less than 1 mile from Tintagel - which has good bus services. It is only a small youth hostel, staffed by volunteers - very helpful and friendly guy when we stayed. The cooking and dining facilities are good, and absolute basics can be bought. The... More

This really is an incredible place - as others have said, it is difficult to get to, especially for those without cars, but the views make it very worthwhile. The hostel is situated about a 15 minute drive down an extremely bumpy gravel path about a mile's walk from the town along the southwest coastal path. I have stayed here... More
