    Great location above the beach, cool atmosphere and not terribly expensive. Would stay again.

    Such a fantastic hostel! If you want easy access to the heart of Newquay- Fistral beach, the strip, surfing, cafes, and everything else- this is a fab choice! Staff are incredibly friendly and helpful, and everything that you expect from a hostel is readily available and well-maintained. The general vibe is very chill and inviting, and attracts other travellers who are always up for a chat :) All together: 10/10 stars from me!

    The hostel was great! Staff was lovely and very accommodating, one of the staff members George looked after us very well! We had a beach view out of the window. Would 100% recommend! The bar was brilliant and well with very affordable prices.

    The property was such a good location, right in the centre of all the shops and pubs. Our room was a good size, very clean and fresh and all the people in our room were very friendly and welcoming. Although the toilet next to our room didn’t have any toilet roll or hand soap (we luckily had our own). There is a really nice communal pub area inside and outside where everyone chills at - also discounted drink/ food if you are staying at the hostel! I will definitely be returning!

    As a solo female traveler, this place was amazing to stay at. It’s in the same building as one of Newquay’s most popular restaurant so if you want a fun & buzzing atmosphere, I definitely recommend staying here! Everything was really great, just know this place doesn’t have a kitchen. If you want food, you’ll have to eat out (which was fine with me and you get discounts with the restaurant downstairs). The shower curtains could be replaced as they were a bit old & I wish the rooms had bins in them but other

    the moment we entered the building, we felt welcomed :) probably the most beautiful location for a hostel. the staff was lovely, the energy was amazing, and the bar was very lively and welcoming but not too loud that we couldn’t go to bed if we wanted to to. I wish i could’ve stayed longer! my only recommendation, book through their personal website for free breakfast in the mornings!!

    Great location, comfy beds and nice view of the beach from our room. The breakfast they charge for is barebones (bread, cereal and juices), so don’t bother getting it. The only way to meet people is in your room as there’s no common area and groups of locals gather in the restaurant.

    Not a bad hostel if you're looking for a 'no thrills' stay in the heart of Newquay. The rooms are right above a bar so very noisy but they do provide free earplugs. Our room had sea views, so it made up for that. None of the bathrooms had any hand soap in. Staff really friendly. Breakfast is ok (cereal, toastie, juice, coffee), but booking on their website meant it was free. Security good, lockers under bed, keys for doors etc.

    Could not find the location, only door I could see was a 24 hour one which you needed a key fob to enter, not helpful when you've not got a fob yet, very confusing and clearer sign posting needed desperately, ended up paying for somewhere else instead.
