U won't regret ur choice to settle in this hostel. Paul I will go back and chat with u again. Even though it is a little far from city but its hostel is built on a wonderful castle and at least in beautiful Penzance.


The hostel was not very busy shortly after New Year's, but nonetheless the staff was happy to prepare breakfast even if it's only for one person. It was a very nice and cosy place, where you can easily stay longer. The dorm room was quite big and the beds were great, good matresses, and power sockets and light at every bed. The staff was super friendly and helpful, giving lots of advice with things to do, lended maps, gave the local weather forecast and so on.
