I stayed at Goofy's between the 6th and 10th of July with 2 girl mates. We are only 16 and were a bit annoyed with the previous place we stayed at over the weekend (Reef Classic) so were very very pleased when we arrived at Goofys. There was a friendly atmosphere as soon as we arrived and the owners were lovely and made us feel right at home! We left out bags and returned later on in the day when our room was ready and were really suprised at the room given to us, It was very spacious with a bunk bed and one single bed, had a full length mirror, a flatscreen samsung telly and a lovely en-suite.
It made the stay better that everyone staying in the hostel at the time was the same age as us but downstairs the kitchen and the lounge were great for socialising. We ended up having breakfast there most mornings which was a sort of help yourself kinda thing with cereal, toast, coffee etc. all day and we used the kitchen a lot for dinner in the evenings which saved us a lot of money! On top of this, there was also a computer with internet, a wii, ipod speakers, a cd player in the kitchen and sky tv in the lounge.
The owners were very pleasant and gave us lots of information about the area and had two gorgeous little boys! They were very relaxed and let us do what we pleased, they just asked that everyone was quiet past 11 oclock and we tidyed up after ourselves which was not a problem. The downstairs kitchen and lounge were locked after 11 also but this was not an issue either as we were always out.
I really had no complaints about this place as the location was great also; a few minutes walk from fistral beach and about a ten/fifteen minute walk from the centre of Newquay. Despite all the bad press about Newquay recently and people who are underage visiting the area i really would recommend it and Goofys. We had a fantastic time staying there and would definitely visit again!
