We stayed here during a short stay and found that the accommodation and location really suited what we were looking for. Being on the south side of Helston meant that the traffic was minimal and it was a perfect base for our travels in the area. The location is simply stunning - to wake to the sight of the ocean...

Sorry that your room was too warm. We have managed to find what was causing the extra warmth and there is a part on order to get this fixed ASAP. More

We went here with family for an uncles birthday. We took over the entire hostel, 30 something of us. It had everything we need and more, clean and tidy and a stunning view. If you are going with children I would recommend taking black out blinds, due to some of the windows being East facing and curtains a bit thin... More

Good point about the curtains. I am currently trying to get new ones so will try and get blackout ones if possible.....no one wants to be woken at 5am by a lively small child on a summers morning even if it is to look at an amazing view! More

A wonderful hostel with comfortable rooms, a superb stainless steel kitchen, good view from the dining area and a large comfortable lounge. We stayed in one of the two en suite rooms on the ground floor. The two volunteer wardens gave us a great welcome. The hostel is sited about 50 yards from the coast path and makes a good... More

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

Great news......Wifi is on its way!!!! We are currently in the process of having it installed but there have been a few small technical issues, all part of being the most southerly YHA in the country I suppose!! 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.

Unfortunately not all of our rooms can be at the front of the building but I guess most people only sleep in their rooms and spend their days enjoying views from the large lounge and bright dining areas. Glad you enjoyed it More

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.

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.
