We arrived very late at the hostel (well past the check-in time) and the staff kindly stayed up to make sure we were alright with our booking. Sitting admiring the marvellous views whilst eating in the breakfast room is a treat; the perfect way to wake up to allow the day to slowly enter your eyes. The room was clean... More

We loved staying at this former Victorian hotel and artist's home above the cliffs at The Lizard. The views from our bedroom were incomparable with the ever changing sea and sky just beyond the end of the garden. This was our second visit and we wished we'd booked for longer. The weather was windy but dry and we had great... More

Hello I am a bit confused over your review as we have not had any problems with water or electricity at YHA Lizard during the season. Maybe this was at another site during your trip.

The hostel couldn't be better located. A gate at the bottom of the garden takes you straight on to the South West coastal path and a great view of the southernmost point. The room (3) we had was a good size and clean and there are ample loo and shower facilities, though shower cubicles are a little dated and cramped.... More
