I stayed here with a large group of friends on 12/13 June and we had a fabulous time at this wonderful location. I can't say I have much experience of Youth Hostels but I feel as though I was spoiled at this one. Lovely bedrooms (especially the en-suites), nice sized lounge and dining room and a great kitchen with everything... More

Hello, I have visited the YHA in April during a tour of the south of England. The YHA is very good and clean. The personnel is helpful, cheering, nice. I have really loved the place and I am looking forward to going back there again. Cornwall is also magnific and Kynance Cove is so close! A must to visit! Emanuele

An impressive former hotel, this hostel is self catering and although I didn't have food to cook, the kitchen is massive with plenty of facilities for those who need it. After a long day's walking, I was looking forward to a comfortable room and was not disappointed with room 4. This is a dorm which sleeps 6 although I was... More

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
