Property Description

Often described as a second home; we offer a warm welcome to all guests - surfers, hikers and travellers alike.
Situated in the heart of Newquay, within easy walking distance of awesome surfing beaches including Fistral Beach, Towan Beach, Great Western Beach and Tolcarne Beach.
The town centre is also right on our doorstep where you can find a range of cafes, restaurants, bars, surf shops, leisure centre, cinema and even an aquarium.

We are a great base for many scenic walks along the coast, learning to surf, or a fun filled party weekend with our weekly socials and cook up's!
We hire surf boards, wetsuits and body boards and even offer great value lessons so there really is something for everyone!

Each room has their own wash basin facilities and some have en-suite bathrooms.
We have large surf-storage with shower facilities, front and back gardens and a communal lounge and dining area (with a massive octopus-wave!!).

Our fully stocked self catering kitchen is open between 8am-10pm.

For same day bookings, or longer than one week - please call.

We had a great experience at this hostel, which is very well placed, around a 10 minute walk from both Towan and Fistral beach, and near the centre of Newquay which is full of lovely restaurants. We were able to easily rent surf boards from the hostel, which ranged from foamies to Short Boards for £5 a session. The staff were extremely nice, and the people who stayed there were also very lovely and open. We would highly recommend this hostel!
