Terrible.

Rooms were filthy and the manager and his wife are far too interring. We even cought them in our room when no one was there, They will also look for any reason to take your deposit so don't expect any of it back.

Avoid

Room Tip: Manager and his wife are rude and aggressive. Be warned

Once we checked, we entered the room to find it in a disgusting state. Fair enough we weren't expecting much.

The real problem began when a member of our party decided to sit on his bed (the upper bunk of a very old and cheap looking bunk bed). The bed instantly collapsed. Thank go on one was sitting below.

We reported the incident to the manger who immediately accused us of purposely breaking the bed. He because very and started swearing at meters of our party. At one point he even threatened to call the police ( I'm no lawyer myself but I'm pretty sure we weren't breaking any laws). When we asked see records of when the beds Last checked and maintained, he became even more defensive and agreasive. At which point we decided to leave the room and allow him "cool off"

We have a video recording of the bed collapse and the managers behaviours after and will post links if required.

We also caught the managers wife performing random room inspections which it's a huge breach of privacy.

In short this is a poorly run hostel with a rude and aggressive manager who made the entire stay implement and fat from relaxing. You are spoilt for choice for in Newquay when it comes to accommodation. My advice is to avoids this place at all costs. It literally is a health hazard.

Great location, around a 5-10 minute walk from the beach. Staff were friendly and helpful when needed, activity leaflets are available to book trips for the days. Rooms were clean and there is a free to use safe in every room. Overall a great place to stay, cheers :)

My daughter (aged 16) stayed with a group of friends (15 in total) post gcse. We were more than a little worried about her going given Newquay's reputation.
However we need not have been; the accommodation was everything they needed in a central location and the staff were really nice (her words!) and treated them as adults.
The group was a well-behaved one; deposits were returned in full and they took full advantage of activities available in the area.
Thank you PJ and Vanessa.

we were a group of 4 17yr old lads, this accommodation fitted the bill perfectly. We were all in the same room but this posed no problems, the room was small but did the job ! perfectly positioned close to shops and beaches. Simple and great value for money. recommended. we will use again.

The accommodation is great, its simple, great value for money and spotlessly clean.
Location is convenient.
PJ and Vanessa are the nicest people you could meet, very relaxed and very accommodating to everyone's needs.
Highly recommended
