It seems strange to say you are staying in a "youth hostel mansion" but that's what it is. It is such an impressive house and a lovely place to stay.The position of the hostel is on the outskirts of Penzance so is a fair walk from the centre. We took a local bus for most of the way and walked the remaining bit.
My friend and I were staying for one night only and booked a twin bedded room but ended up with an enormous six bedded (three sets of bunks) room to ourselves as that particular night the hostel wasn't full. It was a luxury to have so much space. We took evening meal in the dining room/bar and found it of a good standard, as was the breakfast that we had the following morning.
The staff were helpful and enthusiastic and I would have no hesitation recommending this youth hostel.
