Couldn't ask for a better location or place to stay. Great facilities, the owner is a great host. There is a really good selection of fruit yoghurts and cereal for breakfast, perfect to keep you going for a day on the beach which is literally a stones throw away!! Right by a load of decent cafés and pubs too which...

Perfect location, 3 minute walk to the centre of town, 5 minutes walk to the main Fistral beach. Very clean modern bathroom, decent free WiFi, great lounge space and kitchen, ample sized rooms. Rob and Dale are very friendly hosts and provide you with great discounts on surf hire and lessons. Would definitely go back

The base surf lodge has everything you need and more for a great surfing trip. Great chilled atmosphere and friendly service from Rob. Comfy beds and new modern bathroom along with free wifi and a great lounge area to chill out in the evening. Its location is fantastic with walking distance to town and even shorter walk to Fistral beach....

Behold, this place is no ordinary Hostel nor surf lodge. It is clean, spacious with refurbished showers and toilets. The beds are comfortable and the whole hostel is scented with some air perfume.

Apologies for the time take to get round to writing this... ...I think I am only just recovering from the melancholy of the return to the decidedly busier and less coastal Sheffield. Stayed at Base Surf Lodge with my 16yo son for a post GCSE trip. Dale was incredibly helpful and responsive throughout the planning of the 'surf and stay'...

My friends and I wanted to go away this year to somewhere by the sea. Since we are teenagers, we wanted somewhere affordable and fun, and near the town centre. This place was perfect- everything we needed was a short walk away, the staff were super accommodating and fun, the lodgings were cosy and the lodge itself was funky and...

I spent a week here with 4 friends, and found Base Surf Lodge to be everything we wanted it to be. The bedroom was big enough, the bathroom modern and clean and the living room was the perfect place to relax and meet others staying or working in the lodge. The free breakfast was greatly appreciated and the easy going...

Great hostel for surfers. Near the beach, great facility to put your board away and dry your wetsuit. The hostel is clean and the bathroom are brand new. And the staff is friendly (they are surfers) you can rent your equipment there too. Aloha!
