Clean, comfortable, cosy hostel with friendly, welcoming staff and an interesting mix of guests. The location is superb with fantastic views of the beach and sea. Ideal place to stay if you like walking and exploring the coast path and/or surfing and relaxing on the beach.

Had a fantastic stay at this small but perfectly formed hostel. Location is stunning, right on the cliff top. There is also space for a small tent or two between the hostel and the cliff top.

Thanks for taking the time to share your lovely feedback Jenny! 'Small but perfectly formed' is exactly what were proud of, making the most of this great building, and keeping it's history alive!

This hostel boasts stunning views down across Perranporth beach and beyond, and is perfect for accessing the coast path which goes right past the front door! Yes, it is a 10 minute walk up a hill from the town centre, but the views are well worth it. The hostel is very small and friendly, spotlessly clean, with plenty of showers... More

I've stayed in some hostels in wonderful locations but this one beats them all. A short walk, albeit up a hill, brings you away from the hustle and bustle of town so you can enjoy the peace and views in relative solitude. Lovely staff, friendly place with all you need. Will defiantly be staying again.

Thank you for your wonderful review Melanie! We'll look forward to welcoming you back soon. September and October are often lovely months to visit, especially if we're blessed with an Indian Summer. Then the hostel's available for exclusive hire from November, and reopens again to families and individuals in April. More

“There is a bigger dorm room which is great to share if you come as a group or just want to meet other people. It 'looks out' over the ocean which is lovely for the sound of the waves, but also means the window is right by the garden which other people might be using.”
