We stayed here during a short stay and found that the accommodation and location really suited what we were looking for. Being on the south side of Helston meant that the traffic was minimal and it was a perfect base for our travels in the area. The location is simply stunning - to wake to the sight of the ocean...

Sorry that your room was too warm. We have managed to find what was causing the extra warmth and there is a part on order to get this fixed ASAP.

We went here with family for an uncles birthday. We took over the entire hostel, 30 something of us. It had everything we need and more, clean and tidy and a stunning view. If you are going with children I would recommend taking black out blinds, due to some of the windows being East facing and curtains a bit thin...

Good point about the curtains. I am currently trying to get new ones so will try and get blackout ones if possible.....no one wants to be woken at 5am by a lively small child on a summers morning even if it is to look at an amazing view!

We stayed in one of the two en suite rooms on the ground floor. The two volunteer wardens gave us a great welcome. The hostel is sited about 50 yards from the coast path and makes a good...

I stayed here with a large group of friends on 12/13 June and we had a fabulous time at this wonderful location. I can't say I have much experience of Youth Hostels but I feel as though I was spoiled at this one. Lovely bedrooms (especially the en-suites), nice sized lounge and dining room and a great kitchen with everything...

Great news......Wifi is on its way!!!! We are currently in the process of having it installed but there have been a few small technical issues, all part of being the most southerly YHA in the country I suppose!!

Hello, I have visited the YHA in April during a tour of the south of England. The YHA is very good and clean. The personnel is helpful, cheering, nice. I have really loved the place and I am looking forward to going back there again. Cornwall is also magnific and Kynance Cove is so close! A must to visit! Emanuele
