Wanting to be at ease on your days off? And what about having as close to the beach as 250-300 meters? (The same distance to the Newquay Golf Club!). Free breakfast, small but cosy single room with capital city's names instead of numbers. In December can be piercing clod in Cornwall, but the rooms had the heating on. Common area...

All the staff and guests are so friendly! In december it was quite quiet, and there was a hostel dog, Alfie!! Great location; 5 mins from the beach, and 5 mins from town. (also, surf was great when I was there) Thanks for having me! I will be back.

I enjoyed my brief stay here. It wasn't busy at all. So the 7 bed en suite room I was allocated was all mine. There was hand soap at the sink and toilet roll in the bathroom. Otherwise, nothing else is provided. I had my own towels and stuff, so that wasn't a problem. The shower plughole would block up...

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.

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...

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...

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!
