I booked in to stay at this hostel for 1 night, but as soon as I arrived I was taken with the place & ended up staying for 4 nights!! The hostel is perfectly located, with a 1 minute walk to the beach & 5 min walk to the town train station & town itself. The hostel has a wonderful...

Shared a twin room with my grand-daughter who was doing a course on SFX Prosthetics at Gorton Studios. Comfy beds, lovely clean room with our own washbasin and a shared toilet just on the landing. Kitchen with everything needed for self-catering, lounge with wifi and books and board games, great company with people from Uk, France, Germany and even New...

Stayed in a shared dorm while down in Falmouth for a conference. Not only was the lodge in prime location for my amenities (and indeed for relaxing at the end of the day), but it was perfectly homely and immensely welcoming. Would (and already have) recommend to others for an easy stay in sunny Falmouth!

Excellent hostel, great location and really good value for money. Room of four had plenty of space with sink in room. Falmouth is a lovely town and would have liked to stay for longer but we're passing through on a cycling trip. Host was extremely friendly and welcomed us even though we ended up arriving slightly later than expected.

My parents and I stayed slept in a wonderful private ensuite bedroom at Judi's place (I could see the sea from my bed!). We felt like home in this hostel where the atmosphere is warm and the decoration is beautiful and very personal. The beach is 2mn away by walking. I really recommend this place!!

A bargain hostel that's more like a B&B. I stayed in the shared room as well as the single room during my week in Falmouth and both were very clean and nicely decorated. I would recommend this hostel to solo travellers as well as families.

I thoroughly enjoyed my recent stay at Falmouth Lodge Backpackers. I was attending an 'intensive' figure painting course at Falmouth School of Art and the hostel was the perfect location for my stay. It's a less than 10 minute walk from the art school, about 5 mins from the train station and only 2 mins from the beach! Judi was...

Das Haus von Judi ist sehr hübsch in sehr guter Lage. Judi ist als Gastgeber einfach spitze. Waren bereits zum zweiten mal bei ihr und würden es auch jederzeit wieder buchen. Judis house is just awesome. It was not only always a pleasure to have a chit-chat with Judi but also quite informative. We now stayed already the second time...

Had a fantastic 3 night stay at Falmouth backpackers whist on cricket tour of the area. The hostel provided a perfect base for our stay at a very reasonable price. We were able to book the whole of the hostel and got an extra discount. Location is great and Falmouth a good night out.

Obviously this place is good value for money and you are situated in between the main town, harbour and beach which is ideal. We were lucky to have six friends staying in 3 bunk beds on the ground floor. The hospitality was good and we were offered some toast if we liked in the morning. The beds were comfortable and...

Hi there - thanks for your feedback - just wanted to say that we do have lockers available for valuables upstairs - really sorry that you didn't realise that when you were here. Next time! Regards Judi
