One of the best weekends I have had in years, group of 10 ladies on a girls weekend away, aged 24-45. Fantastic location, 5 minute walk to all the bars, beach, town. We all stayed in one room together and all agreed it was such a clean room with x2 showers, the beds were really comfortable (room 23) The escape... More

First time I'd stayed in a hostel and was feeling a bit dubious! Couldn't have got it more wrong! Stayed here with 3 other girls the day before boardmasters festival and ended upstaying the night after boardmasters too (to avoid the 7 hour drive with no sleep!). Rooms were basic as you'd expect, but they were perfect for us and... More

We were very happy with our stay at The Escape and you will be as well if you remember it is a hostel and set you expectations right. The room was just fine, we slept well and the size accommodated us easily. We had an en-suite, but check the room descriptions carefully. The host is really friendly and helpful as... More

Cannot recommend the staff here enough - super friendly, super helpful and just all around legends. We came through last minute, and all the staff really took the trouble to look after us and make us feel right at home. Great vibe, great people and everything you could want in Newquay right by your door.

Right from the initial point of contact Gerry has been nothing but outstanding as a host. Organising for 20 people, accommodation, 3 square meals a day, surfing, coasteering, mountain biking was made an actual pleasure by Gerry's warm and welcoming business approach. The rooms were clean, well presented, with great sea views and security was never an issue. Although basic,... More
