I stayed here for a few nights over the Xmas period whilst visiting family in the area. As I had a friend with me and was on a tight budget I chose this hostel. I love staying in hostels and the town of Beer, so this location was perfect. I’m happy to say it was a very positive experience. Fabulous, efficient staff, and nice to meet like minded guests too! Had we not been eating with relatives we would have tried to breakfast as a vegan option would advertised. The hostel was so quiet and really idyllic with a pretty view. I am sure I will be back in the summer and can take advantage of the scenic walks. Thank you to all the staff.

Good location in small, hilly seaside village. As usual the YHA hostel was clean, tidy and comfortable. Sarah, who handled reception and breakfast for us, was bright and cheerful and an asset to the organisation.

This place is a wonderful secret which, in a way, I'm loath to share. The location is stunning, an Arts and Craft house with many original features. Designed by a Mr Webb, according to the history of the property this might by Philip Webb (close friend of William Morris). It's worth a visit for that reason alone. But being high above Beer the views are beautiful and night sky magnificent. Lovely staff, beautifully clean and good meals. The drive is steep and a bit hairy driving up and the car park requires double parking, but don't let that you put you off visiting this hostel in a pretty seaside town.

We camped for three nights with our own tent, visited nightly by tawny owls. Using the tiny self-catering kitchen sometimes felt like being part of a cleverly-choreographed piece of community dance. But if you need your own space, just wait a bit. We enjoyed sitting on a bench eating breakfast in the sunshine, listening out for the local rogue guinea fowl which, word has it, can sometimes be spotted in the trees on the hairpin bend. The staff were utterly lovely.

Thanks for the lovely review we really appreciate it and who knew what you came to stay that you would learn synchronized dance in the process. Seriously though we would echo your advise to dine at the less popular times and things are usually ok as all YHA's self catering facilities are very popular.

We are glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again in the future
