Fancy for the Window With a View! Rocky cliffs stretching on the coast line up to the horizon in both directions ready to be admired even without living your dormitory. Peaceful location disturbed only by the sound of Atlantic Ocean in 100-meter distance from the hostel. Enchanted building with the roof line on the ground level due to the rocky... More

One can't ask for more when your room has the best view facing the Atlantic Ocean. Located along amongst the most rugged coastlines of Cornwall. Plenty of walking paths that hugged along the coast. Good, clean and best managed accomodations. Close to Tintagel Castle and the village.

This hostel is one of those hidden YHA gems that make it a joy to belong be a member! The location is out of this world, right at the edge of the sea, with an amazing view of the coastline. The coast path stretches out from the hostel in both directions, and by path or by road Tintagel itself is... More

The drive to here was a little bumpy and had small subtle signage but when you get there, by George is it worth it!!! Incredible stay! The view was incredible!

The youth hostel is situated at the end of a track, on the edge of the cliff, overlooking the sea; a really lovely place to stay. It seems so remote, but even so is only about a 15-20 minutes walk from the tourist bustle of Tintagel. The hostel was very comfortable and was very clean and bright as it had... More

We stayed at YHA Tintagel for one night. Our room gave us a wonderful sea view at the front of the hostel. The room was very basic (as we expected) with one single bed and one bunk bed, there was also a sink and plenty of electrical sockets with USB ports, however toilets and showers were located just down the...

What an amazing location. Great little hostel, newly refurbished (just a shame the new fire doors slam so much). The volunteer managers were lovely and looked out for everyone! Many thanks to them. So happy we booked 2 nights here as it was just so relaxing. We were treated to a great sunset as well. Just brilliant!

We stayed at this wonderful hostel for 3 nights. I'd definitely stay here again. It has a wonderful kitchen and dining space, and a few picnic tables by the cliffs. We had a challenge in finding it so be sure to check its location on the map before you go.
