“Excellent choice!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2007

We stayed at the Greenhouse in the middle of June (outside of tourist season) and thought this place was great. Ok so the outside might not look great but it's fantastic. The brothers running it (Mark and Freddie) are great and can tell you everything from where to get breakfast to giving you ideas for planning your days / nights.
Inside the atmosphere is very homely, the living room is well decorated and we felt very comfortable to laze around for an entire day watching tv and playing on the internet (access is free on the pc in the living room).
It's not noisy but only a 3-5 minute walk into town. The rooms have their own showers (which i liked) and the communal areas are kept clean.
I wouldn't think twice about coming back to the Green House. Yes it's cheap, it's homely, well kept, clean and very friendly.

I recently stayed with a party of eight at The Greenhouse and had a really good time. This hostel is still in its formative years but the proprietor, Freddy, will hopefully make it a success. We had a room with four bunk beds, a sink and a shower which were all very clean for a very reasonable price. This hostel is well located, has a pool table and seating area downstairs and Freddy is very well connected in town. He arranged discounted prices for eating and activities. Due to this hostel being only a year old at the time of writing it still requires fine tuning but Freddy's genuine helpful attitude more than makes up for this. He not only organised champagne and cake for my girlfriend’s birthday on arrival, me picking up the bill obviously, but then went on to hastily return back from a meal to book us in for an extra night having had our flight cancelled. It’s a great place for a cheap weekend in Newquay.
