Came down here with 9 others for a stag do and the guys couldn't have been more accommodating. Extremely reasonable hire rates for equipment and all the staff went out of their way to help us out. Walking distance from the town centre and fistrel beach. Much appreciated!

Base was excellent, we could walk straight down to Fistral beach with our boards for our lesson from the big green surf school and had great clean rooms looking over the bay. The whole place had a really chilled atmosphere and it was easy to avoid the really touristy bits of Newquay which are a 5 min walk away. We...

Stayed here recently with a small group of friends and it couldn't have been better for what we were looking for. The bedrooms, washrooms, and communal area were all clean, you have access to a nice little sun trap garden with use of bbq facilitates. This is a great lodge for chilling out through the day or having evening drinks...

Four girls, 3 nights... The hostel is very clean, modern and in a great location. 5min walks from beach and town centre. Rob is an excellent host, very friendly and made us feel very welcome. I would highly recommend this hostel for a chilled out trip to New quay and I will definitely return.
