First time in a lodge, and what an awesome time I had. Very clean, lovely atmosphere and owners are so lovely, welcoming & friendly. It felt like very homely and all the other lodges were friendly too.

The place itself is great if you're on a budget as its super cheap and right next to fistral beach and just a few... More

Really enjoyed my stay, staff were great and other guests super friendly. Was in a four bed dorm on the top floor with its own sink. Only one floor down to a toilet and the showers with more toilets and a sauna were another floor down. Never had to wait for toilets or a shower and staff work hard to... More

This hostel has clearly gone through some great changes since I visited it 2 years ago. The whole place is clean and well managed. Quality of a guesthouse with the relaxed atmosphere of a backpackers hostel

Spending a week here with friends I decided I didn't want to leave. Upon initial arrival I was welcomed wholeheartedly not only by the staff, but by the other guests. I was taken by the coastal cool style of each room. The best that Newquay has to offer is within close proximity of Newquay International Backpackers. This extends to a... More

Great vibe in the hostel, friendly staff and atmosphere,made me feel welcome all the time. Well equipped kitchen for your own cooking, and comfy living room, lounge/tv room and front garden. For surfers, an easy shower room and indoor board store, wetsuit racks and a small sauna perfect for after a surf!

While doing some wwoofing in Cornwall my wife and I took a weekend trip to newquay. Found this awesome little place by a twist of fate. I got everything I wanted here. Clean beds, a shower, and within walking distance of the ocean. Newquay itself is small (but very awesome) and this hostel will let you be close by to... More
