Great location but expect a walk up the hill with your kit ( it does state this in their info and is not really a problem) Very small hostel with great views. Room was the smallest out of all the hostels we stayed in on our trip. It also lead directly off the communial lounge area, which meant we had...

Hi there, thank you for taking the time to give feedback. We're so sorry you were disturbed during your stay. We really hope this didn't taint your stay. Earplugs are available at reception and are sometimes necessary (but only very occasionally) as usually our guests are considerate. Our staff will often remind guests that after 11pm it is expected that...

Thanks for your stellar feedback! We do book up early during the summer months due to our lovely sea-view spot up on the cliff, so do get your diary ready to let us know when you'd like to return! Thanks again, and looking forward to welcoming you again in the future.

I've stayed in some hostels in wonderful locations but this one beats them all. A short walk, albeit up a hill, brings you away from the hustle and bustle of town so you can enjoy the peace and views in relative solitude. Lovely staff, friendly place with all you need. Will defiantly be staying again.

Thank you for your wonderful review Melanie! We'll look forward to welcoming you back soon. September and October are often lovely months to visit, especially if we're blessed with an Indian Summer. Then the hostel's available for exclusive hire from November, and reopens again to families and individuals in April.

Now having walked from Newquay to Perranporth you would hope that the Youth hostel would be in some easily accessed place. It was on the top of the cliff overlooking the headland and beach area. That meant walking uphill from the shops and beach. Don't be put off. Its a lovely little cabin to stay in, no food is provided...

Thank you for your feedback! Its really great to hear you got a surf in before moving on. We are in the perfect spot for walking and surfing here and you often meet other walkers and surfers staying at the hostel, the team here enjoy both too. Hope you enjoy the rest of the coast path and have a good...

Loved Perranporth. The hostel is well situated above the beach with amazing views. Lots of outdoor space for school groups. Small rooms but you don't spend a lot of time inside! Little galley kitchen perfect for self catering. 3 bathrooms and separate showers which were a great arrangement. Wetsuit drying room is amazing!! Could do with more outdoor washing lines....

Thank you so much for taking the time to review our hostel! So glad to hear you had a good trip and we've taken on board the feedback about the washing lines. Hope to see you again next year for another holiday with surf, sun and sea!

“There is a bigger dorm room which is great to share if you come as a group or just want to meet other people. It 'looks out' over the ocean which is lovely for the sound of the waves, but also means the window is right by the garden which other people might be using.”
