Stayed for a stag do. Accommodated 20 of us no problem. Very basic but what more you want. Bar is decent staying open all night which is super. Good breakfast. Very Friendly staff too. Only criticism is the beds were heavily soiled and some with blood. But if you want somewhere cheap and good this is the place.

Brilliant budget hotel we used for YFC weekend. Great location in Newquay and hotel had everything we needed. Breakfast was ideal start to day and bar was open till late. Staff are friendly and helpful. Large bedrooms are ideal for large parties like ours. All in all a first rate place!

This is the third time I've stayed here but this time I had to organise the event, Tim and his team do not disappoint, it's perfect for a stag party, big room which we all shared, it was clean and tidy, even though they are bunk beds they are comfy and fine for a group of lads. Breakfast was great...

I spent two nights with a group of 15 people since one of my group has booked in this hostel in order to save money... I shared a room with other three girls and we could't move inside because the two beds of three levels were so close that was not possible to stand at same time. Rooms are similar...

I stayed here with a few friends for a weekend in Newquay recently. Great atmosphere, great welcome from the owner Jerry and the Thai food is unbelievably good....in fact one of the group who used to live in Thailand said it was better than anything he had eaten out there!! Great value and highly recommended

The bar had a great atmosphere and is a great place to start the night, the owner is extremely friendly and helpful. Also the location is great as can easily walk to all the bars and clubs, whilst also being minutes away from the beach. The rooms were all extremely clean and the beds were actually really comfy great value...
