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

Northshore is located within easy walking distance of dozens of great pubs and restaurants and the owners were really helpful with local information and surfing forecasts;) I ended up with a private room with ensuite for a whole week in August - result!! 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.

We spent 2 nights at this hostel before setting out on the south west coast path. We had a private room with bunk bed and attached toilet. The facilities were clean, though small and the bunk beds a bit soft for our preference. The kitchen was quite large and had all the utensils you could want; the dining area was... More

We had another great stay in this amazing hostel. It is spacious, clean and very welcoming. The morning view from the room towards the sea and the town is great. Thanks to Sean and Janine for the welcome stay in your great hostel!

We had a double room for 2 nights with our own sink and toilet. Showers were down the hallway. The whole hostel were very clean and there was a large well equipped kitchen to prepare your own food. There is also a very homely lounge with TV and plenty of room to sit on the large comfy sofa's. We felt... More
