Nice rooms,big kitchen/ social dinning area, easy storage for surf gear and a great in house surf school. Being able to walk to beach is also one of the best things about this hostel. Probably not the cheapest hostel in New Quay, but definitely the best value.

Stayed for a night with some friends. Really great location (thirty seconds from the beach), owners are really pleasant and welcoming. Excellent value for money, everything you could need is provided for. Would recommend to anyone visiting Newquay that wants easy-going and nice accommodation.

Very close to the town centre and run by a really nice guy. We were down there for a stag weekend and were made to feel very welcome. Showers and toilets were nice and clean and new only 2 years ago. The mattresses are dreadful , though. The building looks to be Victorian and I think the mattresses are a... More

My friends and I went on a trip to Newquay this summer with the intention of surfing Fistral beach as much as possible, and for the money, I don’t think we could have done much better then the Base Lodge. It feels like Rob, who runs the lodge, really goes out of his way to make it a comfortable and... More

Arrived at Base to be greeted by Rob (the owner) who was very helpful and welcoming - he accommodated parking needs by showing us a roadside parking spot which meant there was no need to spend money in the carpark opposite! The Hostel was clean and tidy - the downstairs (Kitchen/ Chill area/ garden) was really chilled and where breakfast... More

Best breakfast ever had in a hostel! Value for money, good location and some nice features (i.e. bathroom). Not the largest rooms but it is in a super central terraced house and there is plenty of room in the basement communal area and garden. Surf hire good value and very close to multiple beaches + town. Guys working there were... More

Arrived at base on a stag do with 13 guys of different ages, the guys working were friendly and helpful, didn't mind us using communal areas for a few games. Breakfast was great, as were the shower facilities. The surf lesson was great fun, but watch out for the uphill walk back!!

About 12 of us (all boys) stayed here for a long weekend. The staff were particularly accommodating, especially given many other places wouldn't allow such a large number of people in one visit. The rooms were OK, not great but the location is excellent. A short walk to the pubs/clubs. Would recommend.

Stayed in the lodge 3 times now. I'm pretty well travelled and would say this is definitely the best hostel/lodge i've ever stayed at. The owner Rob is a top man and through my visits to the lodge, has become a very good friend of mine. Seriously recommend this place for a chilled out break any time of the year.... More
