I only ended up here due to a mix-up in my yha bookings, entirely my fault, but in the end I was glad I did. This hostel is a delight, the staff are so helpful, nothing was too much trouble, and as there are no meals provided rediscovered the joys of cooking my own breakfast! I was able to leave... More

The hostel is by the river. The only draw back is you have to park in the village carpark. It is free from 5pm to 10am but during the day there is a charge. Disabled now have to pay. The hostel is lovely. You have a lovely kitchen and dining area and there was a wet room next to the... More

We stayed here for the Easter weekend and although it was fully booked it didn't feel at all crowded and we were made to feel very welcome by the lady on reception (Linda I think). The building itself looks completely at home on the edge of the harbour but inside it has been completely updated since the flooding. Everywhere felt... More

I was walking the SW Coastal path and had arrived here from Bude on a dark and dreary night. It had been an uncomfortable walk in diminishing light and as I thought I was the only guest walked straight past a well lit building. going back and entering the building ( Iwas surprised as I still thought I was the...

An overnight stop whilst walking the SWCP. I had never stayed at a YHA before and was very impressed. It was very windy on the coast path and we met Linda walking her dogs, who coincidentally worked there. She directed us inland via Valency Valley after first offering us a lift into Boscastle. Thank you very much Linda. We had... More

We stayed at YHA Boscastle for two nights while walking the southwest coast path. We were impressed at the cleanliness of the youth hostel. But not surprised when we saw how hard Angie worked making it spotless. Angie was very friendly and welcoming. Our private room was warm, clean and enough space for us. Kitchen facilities are extensive and we... More

Angie and Anita were incredible in helping me organise a hen weekend for 15. We had exclusive use of the hostel, Anita showed us in when we arrived, then left us to make ourselves at home. The hostel is newly done out since the floods in 2004, so a perfect introduction to YHA for those that haven't done it before.... More

This is a great hostel to stay at, It is very homely & comfortable, with a large clean kitchen & clean showers. From our bedroom we had a lovely view of where the river met the sea and at night we could hear the waves breaking. The location is good for many walks along the stunning coastline or along the...

A truly amazing find! A beautiful location, spotlessly clean, spacious and really homely and comfortable. We had it filled to capacity for my 50th birthday and there was plenty of room for everyone. The village is quaint and friendly and the coast walks are just beautiful. We are already planning on making it an annual event.

A wonderful hostel! We arrived to a warm welcome, spotless and comfortable rooms, a well equipped kitchen, a lounge full of sofas and games and a great view to top it off. You could literally hear the water lapping up the side of the building from the room window. You couldn't get a better location - right at the end... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A lovely spot in a steep-sided valley on the rugged north Cornwall coast, this National Trust-owned rural retreat is on the harbour edge. Here, on your Cornish coast break, you can sit and watch this pretty, bustling fishing village come to life during the day and return to a sleepier pace in the evenings. For a more energetic activity break, you’ll also find excellent surfing and sailing plus miles of coastal footpaths to explore - great for walking holidays. It's self-catering only here, but you can get to know the locals in the nearby pubs while sampling some tasty Cornish food and local ales. ... more   less
