Very comfortable and clean. Well equipped kitchen, no need to bring anything. Room very comfortable and clean toilet. Just give a negative, the bed is short for a person who is more than 180 cm. Perfect for groups of friends and couples Well it located. Easy parking for the car

Such a great place to be. Enjoyed it so much that I stayed for a second week. Travelling on my one I felt never lonely. Have met so great people. Very cozy home. Don't listen to the weather report. Just go. Sunny spot. And there is a lot going on. For everyone. For every age. Martina, Switzerland

I stayed here for 7 nights in one of the 4 bed dormitories whilst walking the South West Coast Path. The rooms are basic (as you would expect from a hostel) but clean and comfortable - I slept extremely well. The kitchen is very well equipped with all the facilities you would need to prepare anything from a simple breakfast... More

I spent a lovely 3 days at this fad hostel. Janine and her sister were delightful. Gave me good advice about the surfing and where to go and also where not to. The hostel itself is clean, well organized and spacious. It is only a short work to many pubs and food. Really recommended if you are going to Bude.

The owner is a good dude, friendly and giving some good advice. Surf in the area is surprisingly good if you manage to get it on a good swell... don't go to main spots though..have a look around. I like the layout and relaxed feel of the hostel. I was not partying, just surfing and chilling and it suited my... More

Bude is just such a great place to... More

Lovely house with friendly staff with a great location just 5 minutes walk from the town and 10 from the beach. However, the accomodation was very basic (yes it's a hostel) and beds were noisy as hell. Every time someone in the room turned over at night I was awake. Overall, I'd highly recommend it. However, if you haven't been... More

Thanks go to Sean for taking delivery of our luggage whilst we walked the South West Coastal Path. The rooms were spacious, the bed was comfy and the showers were hot. Just the ticket after a long walk.
