We stayed in YHA Boscastle in September 2016 while doing some walking in Cornwall. This is a gem of a hostel. It is a great size - not too big and impersonal and is extremely well equipped. It is close to the harbour mouth and all the delightful little cafes and shops of Boscastle. We had a spacious family room...

Fabulous setting for walkers and land lovers alike. The two ladies that run this place are so kind and helpful. A lovely YMA hostel. Close to many points of interest such as Tintagel castle and Bude which can be easily reached by car.

It was great, thanks. The hostel is a splendid little harbour side place, having been thoughtfully refurbished since the devastating flood damaged it extensively, & we were given a lovely welcome. The bed was comfortable, the showers, kitchen and everything else super-clean. The fellow guests were a warm, interesting International bunch some of whom we had animated conversations with, &...

Stayed here in September with my mate on a walking holiday. YHA is situated in a beautiful location,might on the harbour. A fantastic hotel, clean, we'll run with unobtrusive staff who are friendly and helpful. One of the best hostels I have stayed in.

We stayed 2 nights in Boscastle yha but could have stayed far longer. The yha site is a gem, really near the harbour, with a stream running alongside. Staff couldn't have more helpful and welcoming. Facilities were modern, bright and clean. There were breath-taking walks along the cliff. We talked to the coast watch volunteers and used their binoculars to...

We had a superb stay of 3 nights at the beginning of September and had booked full English breakfast for every morning. The first morning my breakfast was only luke warm but the following 2 days it was fine. Other than that we couldn't fault our stay. Very friendly and helpful staff.

Stayed here for one night before continuing down to our holiday in Holywell bay. Anita was wonderful in helping us arrange our very late 11:30pm arrival. Beds all made, kitchen area and bathroom all clean and we all had a very comfortable night in the family room. Just a shame we couldn't stay longer. Haven't seen stars like that before!...

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
