“Fantastic Location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 December 2013

This is a Youth Hostel, so don't expect five star luxury, but you do get a five star welcome and fantastic beer.

It can be a bit tricky to find. On a dark night it can be easy to end up on the steep road down to the beach... ignore the beach road and drive along the track just to the left of the campsite entrance.

The best location; ever.Although a youth hostel with basic rooms; some are double or family rooms with en-suite. Comfortable and quiet. Superb and well priced food;far superior to food I have had in any other hostel. Licensed bar with excellent range of local beers.There seemed to be nothing that was too much trouble for the staff; very friendly and helpful. Very regular music events. Surfing within yards of the front door. Wonderful walking from the front door. Views to die for. Perfect, perfect
Open all over Christmas with open fire. Cafe / bistro / bar was open all day and evening. Staff amazingly welcoming.
DOG FRIENDLY CAFE / BAR

Room Tip: On e of the most beautiful family beaches within yards of the hostel. Surfing, swimming, rock pools...

we called into the YHA and immediately met the chef, manager, Buddy and all round good guy through the window of the kitchen!... we couldn't get in because we had no key code.
after check in which was simple, we had a cuppa tea.... the best!
Room, although small was clean and adequate... after all it's a place to lay our heads.
Wi-fi available to members and 2 or 3 computers available to general use.....
We're here for the night and have breakfast included in our £33.00. Glad we bought and renewed membership. Breaker review tomorrow.

We held a 40th birthday party for my husband here and we had an amazing time. The rooms were what you would expect in a YHA, basic, but they were clean and the beds were comfy. Staff were lovely. They catered for us and it was great, good price too. Not exactly cheap to rent out the whole place for a night but well worth it. Such an incredible location and a perfect party room. Our guests loved it too. Highly recommended.

My Husband, myself and our 6 year old son have recently returned from a 3 night stay during October half term. We arrived to a very friendly greeting and were allocated room 3, WOW what an amazing sea view. Our 6 year old was immediately off exploring as we unloaded the car and unpacked. He had an amazing time we hardly saw him. We stayed over Halloween they put on an amazing Halloween party with pumpkin carving, fancy dress, live music and Karaoke. A good time was had by all.

The burger meal we ordered on our second night was delicious and amazing value for money. It came with a glass of wine or beer or cider all for £6.49. Try the house red it is one of the best red wines I have tasted.

We have already booked to return for 4 days in May half term next year. This YHA is right on an amazing beach and we intend to hire wet suits and try out body boarding.

Thanks to Matt and his team for the amazing job you do at YHA Treyarnon. Cant wait to see you all again in May.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 3 with the most amazing sea view. Also rooms 1 & 2 have a sea view.

We stayed at the hostel in October for three nights and were very impressed with Matt and all his staff everyone was very helpful and friendly at all times. The room we where in was simple but very clean and comfortable. The hostel was in a great location overlooking an amazing bay and a short walk to Constantine Bay. The hostel also had a great cafe that served very good coffee and was very lively without being noisy. The weekend that we stayed they had very good singers who came and did it all free that was a great evening. We would recommend this to anyone who wants an inexpensive holiday but like to be near to local attractions such as the Eden Project and Padstow. Great place

On the 28/9/13 Matt, General Manager, and his team hosted our perfect wedding reception in a marquee next to the hostel. Words cannot describe our appreciation for the team who made every effort to make our special day very memorable. Catering for 120 guests with a three course meal was exceptionally delivered by Paul the Catering Manager. The quality of the food presented would certainly not have been out of place in a 5 star restaurant. Every guest commented not only on the quality of the food but also the generous quantity.
Matt remained very patient with us prior to the wedding and on the day delivering a reception of the highest class. He was always smiling and on hand to speak with guests which was very much appreciated.
Not only were the guests incredibly well looked after on the day but also in the exclusive use of the hostel for the weekend. The accommodation was very clean and the food once again very good.

Treyarnon bay is truly an idyllic location by the sea, which alongside the high standard of service delivery from Matt and his YHA team made it a truly memorable day /weekend for us and our guests

We cannot thank you enough for all your hard work on the best day of our lives. Thank you so much!
