One of the best weekends I have had in years, group of 10 ladies on a girls weekend away, aged 24-45. Fantastic location, 5 minute walk to all the bars, beach, town.
We all stayed in one room together and all agreed it was such a clean room with x2 showers, the beds were really comfortable (room 23)
The escape is a great place and excellent value for money.
We had dinner and breakfast and the quality was great. The Thai food is stunning.
Gerry is an amazing host who will go above and beyond to make your stay special.
Would 100% stay here again. Really funky place, great vibe, lovely staff
P:S- have a fabulous time, you will not be disappointed

Room Tip: Call Gerry he will help with whatever you need extra

First time I'd stayed in a hostel and was feeling a bit dubious! Couldn't have got it more wrong! Stayed here with 3 other girls the day before boardmasters festival and ended upstaying the night after boardmasters too (to avoid the 7 hour drive with no sleep!). Rooms were basic as you'd expect, but they were perfect for us and we had an ensuite! Gerry and Emma were amazing! From parking my car for me, to preparing me a virgin mary hangover cure when I needed it most, to giving us a lift to the amazing restaurant you recommended when our taxi didnt show up! All staff did an amazing job and I cant wait to stay here again on our next visit! Thank you so much!

We were very happy with our stay at The Escape and you will be as well if you remember it is a hostel and set you expectations right. The room was just fine, we slept well and the size accommodated us easily. We had an en-suite, but check the room descriptions carefully. The host is really friendly and helpful as were all the staff. There is a bar with a pool table. Location near the front at Newquay is amazing. Overall an excellent stay. The only wrinkle is the parking which is triple deep and it takes a bit of coordination. So leave extra time (45 minutes) when you leave if you have a connection or deadline.

Cannot recommend the staff here enough - super friendly, super helpful and just all around legends. We came through last minute, and all the staff really took the trouble to look after us and make us feel right at home. Great vibe, great people and everything you could want in Newquay right by your door.
