    Relaxing stay, overlooking seaside was a bonus and a peaceful sea waves background noise all throughout the evening. Staff were very friendly and food at the bar was nice!!! Other guests were very loud at like 11pm in the evening and doors were so noisy everytime somebody open and close it. I would recommend this place.

    A Great hostel! Ideal location if you want to be waking distance to the main surfing beaches, bars and shops. You get discount surf lessons at Escape surf school below & discount off food & drinks at the connected Belushi's bar (which was gratefully received). Super serious on cleaning and social distancing which meant I felt safe staying during the pandemic. Definitely recommend for any surf holiday to Newquay 🤙🏼

    Brliant place. Extremely comfy and immaculately clean. Pillows were in good condition too which is rare! Appreciate covid might be restrictive but would REALLY benefit from access to a fridge and a kettle through the night/morning as once bar shuts at 10pm,theres currently nothing until leaving for brekky... Brilliant in all other areas though

    Really good stay - staff were excellent, rooms were decent and location to beaches and bars was perfect. We were lucky and had our 6 bed ensuite to ourselves (due to distancing) but the room was very cramped - max capacity wouldn't be fun! Only gripe was that the room was not very clean on arrival and some general upgrades needed (e.g. ensuite door did not shut, mouldy seals in shower). Somewhere to dry wetsuits would be helpful too. Still really enjoyed our stay and would come back!

    Room was ready when we got there. Not 24 hour reception so you would have to find someone to talk to. Rooms were clean. One toilet for a whole floor of dorms is not great. Location was superb and got a deal on surfing lessons for booking with this specific hostel.

    It’s a great location for a hostel and despite being over the top of a bar I never heard much noise. It’s not really set out like a hostel though- there’s no communal spaces and the Belushis was always full (due to Covid requiring bookings). Lucky that the people I was rooming with were super friendly otherwise it would have been hard to meet anyone.

    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
