    This was my first time staying in a hostel, and I was really impressed! It was clean and home-like, and though I did invest in a private room, I felt safe on the premises. I would definitely consider staying there should I ever make it back to Newquay.

    This place is in a great location. Fistral beach and Newquay town centra are both within easy walking distance. The staff were laid back but efficient. I was luck to park nearby. This could be tricky.

    The staff were friendly , location was decent, there’s a sauna for £1 per 30 min, awesome decor and a decent breakfast spread. Sainsbury’s down the road, Spar corner shop & ATM less than a min walk and the surfing beaches are around 10 min away 😎👍🏻 Would def recommend 😉✌🏼

    This is a great hostel. Friendly staff, nice common spaces. Clean rooms. Only down sides were the shower room was a bit on the cool side, though the shower nice and hot. and the kitchen is locked from 10 pm til 8 am. Only really a downside because we had an early start to our walk on the Southwest Coast Path.
