A truly amazing find! A beautiful location, spotlessly clean, spacious and really homely and comfortable. We had it filled to capacity for my 50th birthday and there was plenty of room for everyone. The village is quaint and friendly and the coast walks are just beautiful. We are already planning on making it an annual event.

A wonderful hostel! We arrived to a warm welcome, spotless and comfortable rooms, a well equipped kitchen, a lounge full of sofas and games and a great view to top it off. You could literally hear the water lapping up the side of the building from the room window. You couldn't get a better location - right at the end... More

Everything a YHA should be...you can't really say more. The only issues would be the cost and location of car parking and lack of wi-fi BUT this is Cornwall and it is a YHA where there is a strong tradition of getting there without a car and surely we can do without wi-fi... We will return if we can

we stayed in one of the 'private rooms' at the Boscastle YHA which unusually for a hostel it was more of a studio apartment than a bedroom as it came with a double bed, single bed and bunk bed and our very own studio kitchen. The location is beautiful and we could hear the waves gently breaking when the tide... More

This YHA was everything a YHA should be. Comfortable beds, great shower just outside the room and an AMAZING location. The hosts were helpful when we asked where to eat, and provided information about the area. Also I noted that the manager offered a stranded duo a ride up to a farm which was very kind! The dorms are on... More

Stopped overnight here during a cycle excursion and we were warmly welcomed by the host - forgotten the ladies name but you were a star dealing with 4 tired cyclists. The best YH i have stayed in by far and great position. Comfy bed, very clean room and brilliant showers and a safe lock up for the bikes.

Great hostel with very friendly and helpful staff. Perfect location on the waterfront, smallish dorms but cozy and comfortable beds. Great showers, something that I haven't found common in other YHAs!

I have been coming to Boscastle for a number of years but never stayed at the YHA. Having now stayed there for 2 nights in a family room, I think I will be staying there every time I go anywhere near Boscastle. The hostel is the closest building in the village to the harbour. From your room you can only... More

As a result of the 2004 flood disaster, this YHA has had a complete makeover. We we a party of 4 walking the South West Coast Path and were delighted to find our accommodation was so clean and modern and offered a normal bed. Lovely warm accommodation, great facilities, friendly staff...... Lovely coastal village. Would highly recommend.

I visited with a group of friends, and I didn't expect to much, I knew the surrounding area was great and was pleasantly surprised to find out this place was as well. Didn't see to much of the staff but they were helpful, rooms clean/comfortable and the shower is out of this world. I would recommend this indefinitely without hesitation.
