I spent two nights with a group of 15 people since one of my group has booked in this hostel in order to save money... I shared a room with other three girls and we could't move inside because the two beds of three levels were so close that was not possible to stand at same time. Rooms are similar...

I stayed here with a few friends for a weekend in Newquay recently. Great atmosphere, great welcome from the owner Jerry and the Thai food is unbelievably good....in fact one of the group who used to live in Thailand said it was better than anything he had eaten out there!! Great value and highly recommended

The bar had a great atmosphere and is a great place to start the night, the owner is extremely friendly and helpful. Also the location is great as can easily walk to all the bars and clubs, whilst also being minutes away from the beach. The rooms were all extremely clean and the beds were actually really comfy great value...

All bad feedback will be families unhappy as it's clearly a stag/friend groups place. Great value, clean, nice beds. Do not pass up the Thai food made onsite. It is incredible. Owner is a really nice chap who obviously wants people to enjoy their stay. Be considerate outside as he is having a lot of trouble with locals.

One of the best weekends I have had in years, group of 10 ladies on a girls weekend away, aged 24-45. Fantastic location, 5 minute walk to all the bars, beach, town.

First time I'd stayed in a hostel and was feeling a bit dubious! Couldn't have got it more wrong! Stayed here with 3 other girls the day before boardmasters festival and ended upstaying the night after boardmasters too (to avoid the 7 hour drive with no sleep!). Rooms were basic as you'd expect, but they were perfect for us and...

We were very happy with our stay at The Escape and you will be as well if you remember it is a hostel and set you expectations right. The room was just fine, we slept well and the size accommodated us easily. We had an en-suite, but check the room descriptions carefully. The host is really friendly and helpful as...

Cannot recommend the staff here enough - super friendly, super helpful and just all around legends. We came through last minute, and all the staff really took the trouble to look after us and make us feel right at home. Great vibe, great people and everything you could want in Newquay right by your door.
