    I love St Christopher Inns, I've stayed at them in 5 countries this year.. Newquay is my absolute favourite of them all... But....the housekeeping lady spoilt the whole thing on Sat morning. She burst in the room moaning to herself about the '****head guests' at 2 minutes past 10, Before slamming every door in the building and complaining about how much work she had to do. I tried to remind her her that some people were sleeping but her response was....'they're not now'.... 10/10 otherwise

    For the extortionate price over the bank holiday weekend, defo not value for money. No soap in our dorm during 3 night stay despite asking, not good "covid" cleanliness. Cleanliness wasn't great either - sanitary bins overflowing, grubby bathrooms. No hooks to put your towels/clothes on in the shower so had to go on the dirty floor. No communal area other than the bar to relax and meet people, and no deals on drinks for guests so it was expensive to be social. Needs a refurb as looking run-down.

    We booked this place to check out Newquay night life, being near all the bars, and it having it's own bar. Problem was, Belushies, the hostel bar was so busy on Saturday night, that we couldn't get served there. We didn't get served anywhere on Saturday night. We didn't get a table in the hostel bar till Sunday night. There is no common room or kitchen in the hostel so if you can't get into the bar, you have to go elsewhere. Place was expensive for what we received, which was a bed & a shower

    We usually love staying in st christophers every year however on this trip some of the staff were rude and it was overpriced. The terrace area which is the best feature of the hostel was closed and the reason kept changing for whoever asked and you can’t even get a coffee. Would likely not stay here again.

    The hostel was a scruffy little room with appalling bedding. Dirty little shower with soaked through floors covered in sand. Toilet had continuous **** stains, like I said sand everywhere. We even saw rodents in the early hours of morning. It was carelessly cleaned, even I could of done a better job. The staff didn’t even care to have lively conversations with the guests, the food at the bar was as bad as the cleaning. It was a very unfriendly atmosphere with the staff.
