“I was on a biking holiday, ending in Cornwall. The hostel is convenient to EVERYTHING. The kitchen was great, in fact a lot of people were in there in the evening preparing meals and sharing dishes. There is a hangout room with a TV and table by the window for writing and using WiFi. The night I was there people were considerate and quiet at night.”


“Not in the centre but not too far either, about 15 minutes away. Always clean, especially the bathrooms and kitchen which was great. Not too many rules, which could have been overwhelming otherwise. Neatly arranged kitchen. Just a pity there was no access to washing machines. Good prices.”


“I came here for a break last month (February),and stayed at this hostel.I booked the double room which was really nice,clean and warm.One slight criticism is there was no double wardrobe or bedside draws for clothes.Not so bad just me on my own,but it could cause problems for a couple.The whole hostel was really clean,the owners were very friendly,including the two Whippets!!!.It says 20 mins walk from the station,more like 30.Would certainly recommend it and use again”
