Really enjoyed our stay here while doing some coastal path walking in the area for a few days. Coverack has a couple of small shops, or Helston is a 20 min drive away. Lots of beaches nearby on the Lizard, or Coverack has rocky ish beach at low tide. The Hostel was welcoming and clean with lounge, conservatory area to... More

We do get very busy in the summer months and the self catering kitchen reflects this. Next time join us for Supper Club, no fight for the facilities and better still no washing up! More

Nice location for our group of 24 hikers to take over completely, and nice sized communal rooms. Enjoyed the wall displays telling the story of the hostel and associated strip of coastline, not least the tale of the SS Mohegan which was wrecked on the nearby Mannacles rocks and whose bannister was salvaged and now adorns the hostel. The weak... More

This family run hostel is a wonderful place to stay and in my case whilst walking the South West Coastal Path that fortunately runs right along through the delightful village of Coverack.

It certainly is!! Coverack is a little known Cornish village and it really is a hidden gem. Perfect for walking, family seaside holidays and as a base to explore all the local attractions. Roskillys ice cream farm is only up the road too, and it doesn't get better than that! More

Have been several times to this lovely YH. It is set in an apple orchard and on top of hill so has gorgeous views over the rugged Cornish sea and cliffs - divine.

We stayed 2 days in Coverack. As someone from continental Europe to drive to this place is an experience. But we enjoyed the stay. First of all the locations over the sea is very nice. If you go 100 m downhill you reach the harbor with some restaurants and cafes - not many 1-2 of each kind. We had a... More

We stayed 2 nights in a private room with ensuite facilties. We had a stunning sea view. The staff were extremely helpfull. Breakfast was tasty and we had dinner on saturday which was perfectly adequate. The reception sells local beer. The hostel is very nice. Camping is possible. The hostel is very close to the sea front of coverack.

I stayed here whilst walking the coast path this year and can't wait to go back. The staff were very welcoming and the hostel was spotless.
