a really nice youth hostel, well located to go surfing or to visit Cornwall with a car. The staff is really nice and helpful. It feels like home over there, the atmosphere is friendly. There's a big and convenient kitchen, the dormitory was a little bit small but the beds are comfortable.

Really friendly atmosphere. Steve is an amazing host. I left my bag behind and Steve was marvellous and posted it to us. The beach and bars in the area are also great. We had a fantastic time and will defo be back :)
Best hostel I have stayed at. The owners were incredibly nice and helpful, and the area was beautiful. 2 minute walk from the beach, host was helpful with ideas on where to visit, room was amazing, towels were provided and everyone had a personal bathroom\shower, great kitchen, lots of breakfast choices. Wonderful experience!!!!!

The beach near by was great, free Landry facilities, had a hot tub on the roof, great patio and view. It even had a dishwasher! And the man who runs the hostel was very helpful and nice.
The hostel was comfortable and cozy, and Steve was a great host. Very good facilities (terrace, lounge, full kitchen, etc.). I wish they had lockers, though. The free towels and ensuite dorm were a nice plus. Very convenient to Porthtowan Beach and the South West Path. Don't miss the beautiful sunset over the water.
