“Great Hostel”
Reviewed September 7, 2012

Just want to give a big THANK YOU to the staff at the Greenhouse. All 6 of of us had the best week with great activities orgainised by the staff of the hostel. We got a great welcome, it was very relaxed, 10 mins walk into town. Check it out and i'm sure you won't disappointed especially if your going with a group of friends. We'll definitely be back again!!

This was my second time staying at The Greenhouse and again we have left anticipating our next visit. None of the other hostels in Newquay have the same relaxed and homely vibe as this place. It is in a quiet area only 10 minutes walk from the town centre and 5 mins away from Great Western beach which is perfect for surfers and holiday makers alike. The house has a sweet little garden with a BBQ that you can use and the lounge has sky, a pool table and a kettle for tea n coffee whenever.The 2 guys who run the place are great and are always there to provide assistance and make you feel at home. This place is the "bees knees item 9"!! do check it out.

I have been to Newquay several times and stayed in nearly all the different surf lodges and hostels but The Greenhouse is the most relaxed, friendly and homely of all of them by far. We found this place last summer on a surf trip and they sorted us out a great room on short notice. The two guys who own and run it, Freddie and Mark, are great lads, really good laugh and really chilled out. We enjoyed it so much we came back again this year for 2 weeks and again we had an awesome time. I highly recommend anyone going to Newquay to stay at The Greenhouse. It is the dogs bollocks!!! Thanks again lads for a top holiday!! See you next year!!!

This place is clean and tidy. Nice communal room with a pool table, TV and sofas for chilling and chatting. Hosts Freddie and Mark are super friendly and helpful. And the toilet paper was quilted - touch of class!

Stayed for two nights in a clean bedroom with 6 bunkbeds (but if you book early enough you can get also 2, 4 & even 8 bunks beds per room). Shower & sink were in room, toilets in hallway. Good communal facilities where breakfast (coffee, cereal and toast) was provided - nice surprise.

It is a surf lodge - with sqeeky beds and other people sharing the room - and I had a great time there. Staying there saved the great experience of my first surf weekend :-)

Stayed here for two nights and enjoyed the trip. Clean and tidy bedroom, 6 bunks in the room, shower and sink. Squeaky beds and squeaky door so you might be woken if you're a light sleeper! Good communal facilities. Cereal and toast for breakfast, bonus as I didn't think a hostel would provide stuff like that. Chilled out atmosphere. Nice people staying there. Freddie was a great host, very friendly and approachable. Would recommend it as it's close to town but quiet enough not to be disturbed by the hoards of stag and hens. Safe parking on the road round the corner.
