My surf club stayed at the escape for the first time this year for three days during the university national surf competition. We were looking for a nice hostel with friendly staff and a bed after a big night out and as a place to relax or get ready to go surfing. It was perfect for this and it out did itself; the included full english was ideal for a student about to surf all day long. the beds were comfortable and the rooms clean and with enough space for us all. the toilet and wash facilities were plenty and the bar area was great with good value prices on drinks. The best part was the really nice staff who did so much to take care of our group. the parking was fine and there is unrestricted parking nearby if you need extra parking. the hostel is also nicely located to get to local beaches or into town. 10/10 would recommend especially to students and surfers but also would be fine for other groups. I believe in constructive criticism as it helps everyone improve. it would be great to have a safer place to store surfboard(what is there is good but still lacks the security of a locked shed/room) and a larger line to hang wetsuits or potentially even a drying room. not for me personally but maybe some old surf guides in the bar would be good for weekend surfers. Overall a really great hostel look forward to going back

Room Tip: pick rooms away from the larger 14 bed dorms if you want a quieter stay

The staff is so friendly and is there to help you. The rooms are nice and beds are comfortable. Great bar downstairs where you can chill and chat with the staff. I will be returning hopefully soon. 10/10 recommend

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 to a lager!
No linien and no towels. Very humid and not cleaned room at all.
Few bathrooms on the floor and in one of them wc didn't working.

Breakfast was good but the service not fast. I enjoyed cappuccino very much.
The breakfast room is lovely but should be cleaned, expecially the black sofas.

This hostel is for men and not ideal for women. Suggested not for more than a couple of nights.
The car park is free but small. However, there are other streets where to park.

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 for money was not expecting it to be this good, would certainly recommend.
