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.

Had the most amazing time at Boscastle YHA was one of my highlights to my holiday, beautifully situated and ideal for walkers. A small valley with a quaint little harbour, the YH is placed right at the edge of the harbour. The staff were kind and helpful and made me feel welcome the bedrooms were comfortable, and kitchens perfect for... More

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!... More

Shared a family room with my teenagers. Room a little small, but Linda showed us which room would be perfect to book next time we stayed. Shower was the best of all the hostels this holidays! Great view over the river from our bedroom and we could hear the water at night which was a delight. Comfortable, clean and clearly... More

Having spent most family holidays down in Cornwall, mainly Sennen Cove, over the years we decided to have an overnight stay in Boscastle which is somewhere we have never visited before. We are now well & truly besotted with this charming & welcoming place! We stayed in the YHA with our 3 young children in a 5 bed room which... More

I got a bed at Boscastle yha at juslean fresh environment, great s/c kitchen and lounge, 6 bedded female dorm -(no top bunks!). Great nights sleep apart from the hum of the generator and light from the landing coming in though the glazing of the bedroom door all night. The latter could be easily resolved.

We arrived after a long days walking on the coast path to a very warm welcome. The hostel was superbly run. Very clean, lovely showers and extremely comfortable beds. The kitchen had everything you could possibly need and there is a lovely little courtyard to sit in. I will definitely be back!

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

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
