We are situated at the heart of the European surfing capital, Newquay, Cornwall, England. Ideally located for sampling the famous surfing, nightlife and cuisine. We have some of the best beaches in Europe with amazing coastline walks.

We offer comfortable surroundings and a friendly informal atmosphere. We have a fully equipped kitchen, vending machines, central heating, TV/DVD lounge, free hot showers. We also have storage facilities for Surfboards & wetsuits and a sauna to help thaw out after your surf! We provide clothes wash service. Each room has a sink with h& c. There are barbecues at the hostel throughout the summer and sometimes in winter for the brave. Surfing lesson can be arranged and staffs have a good knowledge of the best spots to go to.

The male staff didn't told me the bed was booked so after 2 night i stayed, he just asked me to checked out.
It's not right and inappropriate...
but the whole atmosphere, the fellow travellers there brought a very nice friendly atmosphere..
