I booked this hostel on a last minute trip to Cornwell recently. Luckily they still had rooms available even though it was high season. The staff are very friendly and helpful and gave me a twin room for single use as it was a last minute booking.
The hostel was very clean and there was no queue for the bathroom and shower facilities even though they were fully booked.
The price even included a basic breakfast of juice, coffee/tea, cereal and toast.
The hostel is about a 20 min fast walk from the station, but if you arrive late at night, its probably easier to get a cab for £4. There are also busses that run from the Railway station to a stop close to the hostel.
I can fully recommend this hostel and will definitely stay there again.
