A busy hostel in an iconic location, at the most southerly tip of Britain. The hostel was clean and welcome polite, though a little chaotic with all the arrivals. Room was fine, not as modern as some of the other hostels visited, but fine. No food was served so eating options need to be sought out in Lizard itself or... More

I stayed here with my mum, and we had a private room (room 7, I think) with en suite bathroom. The view from the bay window was straight out to the sea - next stop Spain! The top bunk bed wasn't too comfy and was quite squeaky when you turn over, but the bottom bunk bed is a double and... More

We very much enjoyed our stay in the YHA Lizard. Our private room had an ensuite bathroom and the view from the big window was gorgeous. Everything was clean and we loved the quietnes of the place. Ideal location for walking along the coast path and for relaxing. The only thing we missed was a sun chair. If you are... More

Highly recommend staying at the YHA on the Lizard in Cornwall. The location is just in front of the Lizard Lighthouse. Fantastic views, lovely accommodation and the volunteers very welcoming. Stayed in a private room with 2 children and they had the best time ever exploring the grounds and the Lizard itself. Self catering but with good kitchen facilities. Local... More

These two nights were absolutely wonderful! I was staying there with my family and we booked the room 2 which had a view on the sea and this was worth it. Seeing such a landscape when you wake up is simply a bliss. We even had the chance to see cute rabbits in the yard all the time! In addition... More

We wanted somewhere different to stay whilst exploring the coast around the Lizard. Being a fussy sort and a family of 4 we booked a family room. In advance of our stay I emailed the hostel to see if we could be allocated a sea view and I was pleasantly surprised when it was confirmed we had been given a... More

We decided on a short notice break cos "'er indoors" has been working too hard these last couple of months. A Rapid Response Nurse with NHS she needed a break, so I called YHA and booked Lizard Point... because it was so far from anywhere, situated at the southern most point in the UK and without wi-fi or mobile signal........

Great value accommodation, with very friendly staff and possibly one of the very best sea views anywhere in the World. Nice, peaceful and relaxing. Also, one of the very best Cafe/restaurants only a few mins walk away at the Polpeor Cafe. Great for evening meals while watching the sun set, and fantastic food, at realistic prices. All contributed to a... More

Walking the Coast Path I just had to stay here, it's even further south (just) than the lighthouse next door. I was lucky enough to have a male dormitory of four beds to myself. The dorm was fine, the shower was OK except I managed to shut the lighting cord in the door and struggled to re-open it - marks... More

This hostel is in a fabulous location, is a great building and is very well-looked after. Our room was a reasonable size (five bunks for 2 adults and 2 kids) with the best view I've ever had from any hotel in the world and exceptionally clean. The kitchen is well-equipped and also spotless. The only two things that were a... More
