Very nice hostels for families, not really suitable for young and night active people

My only negative had nothing to do with the hostel or staff. There was a large group each night and some of them needed better supervision from their own people.

Lovely stay. We stayed in one of the bell tents which are spacious and delightful. Staff are very helpful and the hostel was very comfortable.

Really impressed with this hostel, it almost felt like staying in a hotel. Very modern and clean, good facilities and I like that there is a "glamping" option. Although out of the city, easy to get to by bus or cheap by taxi. Paul the manager was so helpful and made our stay great!

The hostel has an amazing ambience. The toilet facilities are very and new. The beds are comfortable have a socket and light hanging next to each one. Breakfast 5,25 and includes drinks and tastes really nice. I definitely recommend this hostel!

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.
