We stayed at Porthtowan backpackers just for one night, but if I could I would stay much longer. Steve, the owner was very helpful in showing us around the house and finding out where to borrow surfing kit. The house itself was very clean and it had a rooftop terrace with an amazing view of the sea.
Porthotowan is a tiny town with 1 pub and 1 bar, though, so make sure that you arrive early enough for them to still serve some food. Do not expect crazy party, but you'll get good drinks and music in both bar and pub.
It's a great place for surfing beginners. Waves aren't too rough, so you can even stand up on the board :-)
