A group of 40 of us from Exeter university surf club stayed here for 2 nights in February and despite our numbers the staff handled us exceptionally. The whole weekend logistically was made a doddle by the staff as they allocated everyone to their rooms proficiently and cooked us all some splendid meals! All round the hostel is a cracking...

Stayed New Years eve and couldn't have had a better stay. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and welcoming. The rooms were clean and well kept. Had a good laugh in the bar befor we went out with the staff. An old School attitude and a good level of trust made this the best new year for a wile!...

A university surf trip with Huddersfield and great accommodation for a large group of people. Amazing staff who helped us sort out meals throughout the weekend and the bar was a great place to all have a few drinks after a long day in the water. Will definitely be back next year! Cheers!

We've used this hostel 3 times now and Gerry and his staff have never disappointed us. Great food, great rooms, great service and best of all, a cheap bar!

Went for my birthday. Jerry (owner) is really welcoming. It's a great lodge. I've been to pretty much all of them now and I vote this one the best. It's also in a good location with free parking. The bar is also very cheap and opens to 4am great for pre and post drinks :)
