Relaxing weekend in a very welcoming YHA. Two person room compact but suited our needs perfectly. Lounge area comfortable, catering met our needs but also used the self catering kitchen too. Would stay again.

Hello, thank you for your great comments. I am glad you had a relaxing few days. It will be good to see you again but don't forget the other nine spectacular hostels in Cornwall. They are all in great locations some with stunning coastal views. Paul

Very comfortable stay. Stayed in a shared 8 bedded dorm. The bunk bed mattress was very comfy. The shower was clean and adequate and the toilets were very clean. The breakfast was very reasonably priced at £6.75 and were offered a good variety of food including full English,

I stayed in Penzance for a couple of days and the accommodation was fine. I was in a 8 female dorm but one of the guests was a man. He was lovely but I was expecting all females in my dorm. Also, it had a weird smell to the dorm that I did not like. What I did like was the

Hello Daytrip, thank you for taking the time to write a review. I am very sorry to hear about the issues you had when staying with us. Here at the YHA we take the safety and security of all our guests seriously and will investigate any issues immediately. I am sorry for the delay in responding to your concerns. I have been trying to pinpoint the date of your visit without success. I was not made aware of a male in a female dorm room. All our keys are programmed to individual guests once ID has been verified. Please contact me so that I can investigate this incident further. penzance@yha.org.uk

Great hostel, good location and helpful staff. However, the Wifi is limited to a small area around main reception, some of the private rooms are super small and breakfast is good, the food in the evening can be a bit hit or miss depending on which team is on duty. I tried

Hello, Thanks for your comments regarding you stay with us. We have always had a problem with WIFI due to the thickness of the walls in the building! This might sound like an excuse but we can't even use Walkie Talkies to locate a wayward member of staff. The reception and dining room are the only safe areas providing people are not live streaming. I appreciate that a couple of our twin rooms are small. If you are staying more than 0ne night we will endeavour to give you a bigger room. I can only apologise if the food you were served was below you expectations. All the staff I employ are approachable and would have dealt with the matter at the time. I am happy for the customers to give immediate feedback. That way things are sorted to everyone's satisfaction.
