For a hostel, I rate this five stars. It's in a great location right on the cliffs overlooking the view, with a lovely sloping gardening giving beautiful sunsets. I was lucky enough to get a two-person room with a stunning sea view, perhaps those tucked into the small four-person rooms at the back would've been less happy.

We stayed here for 1 night of what was meant to be a weekend as part of a party of 28. What experience myself and my husband had was nothing like what was written on Trip advisor. We were met by ants and woodlice crawling over tables and the floor, mould on curtains, the door handle fell off in our... More

A really unusual experience right next door to the light house. Great experience to see the lighhouse functining and to be so close. The hostel is beautifully located by the sea and the grounds are amazing and well kept. It is very clean and spacious. Suitable for individuals, groups and families. The decor and overall condition is very nice and... More

Two friends and I stayed two nights at the Lizard YHA. Our room was in the back of the building which was, at first, a disappointment. However, we appreciated the smooth, swift lighthouse light crossing the room all night. The hostel was clean and well-cared for, the showers very small and steamy, and the stairs to the upper floor very... More

We got the 37 bus from Redruth and the driver kindly let us off at the lane to Kynance Cove. After having a late lunch at the cafe at the Cove and spending some times there we walked to the hostel, which took a couple of hours. It was a lovely walk along the coast path, looking out to amazing... More

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
