“Excellent service, comfortable rooms, great price!”
Reviewed 30 January 2012

Arrived in the dark in winter and was warmly greeted by Judi, the owner. She was very helpful and informed us of where we could get some food, and attractions in the area. We paid for a twin room but as one wasnt available we got a 4 bed dorm for the same price. bed were very comfortable, with clean linen, and the room had a sink in it which was convenient. Very clean, had a real beachhouse feel!! Only complaint is that the front door got stuck a lot, which was a real pain but that didnt change our overall opinion.
Got laundry done by Judi for 7 pound, and it was outside our door in the morning folded and dried!! Breakfast was toast, which is helpful for us as we left so early!
Definitely recommend

visiting in winter with adverse weather warnings I am pleased to say I enjoyed a warm ,comfortable and friendly 3 night stay at the hostel. The owner Judi is very helpful and is on hand to settle you in and make you feel welcome which was great for me as I don't know the area and was visiting on my own. The lodge is in a quiet residential area , close to town and with the sea just round the corner and I will definitely return next time I'm visiting falmouth.

Fantastic base close to the town and in a quiet street ideal for checking out Falmouth or as a comfy but affordable stop over for business. Judi is a kind and warm host her accommodation is clean, cosy and adequately furnished. I would definitely return.

I am a 37yr. old backpacker and think Judy's place is the ideal hostel for my taste and needs...first she is a great host, polite and helpful whenever information is asked. Not your avergage hostel, far better cared for, very cosy and comfortable, great lounge area with lots of books and local tourist information. Small kitchen with free coffee and tea all day and toast and jam for breakfast (wheat bread!) Really pleasant environment, great location for walking to the beach and to town. I would certainly return here...maybe I will for this weekend's Falmouth Beer Festival! (the lodge is around the corner from the Princess Pavillion)

Room Tip: my room had 2 beds, only had to shar with one other girl....had a sink in the room.

We have got 2 beds at last minute call for one night. Everything was very nice, Judy very helpful and inviting. Nice location, all important places in walking distance. Falmouth is beautiful and there is a lot going on.

Good things about the hostel: great location - near the beach, short walk to town, parking available outside. Clean sheets, nice lounge which made it easy to mix with others, very friendly owner.

Not such good things: Bathrooms not so well maintained (a bit bodged) and some mould lurking which was unpleasant. Kitchen FAR TOO SMALL and badly equipped. There is almost no storage space for food and only an Aga or a microwave. I'm fairly sure the average backpacker has no idea how to cook on an Aga. Not the sort of place you can easily prepare your own food, which was a major drawback for me.

We stayed for one night in this Hostel, because it's located at a very small distance from the station were we had to take the train the next morning. But it's also at a 5 minute walk from the beach. Judy was very kind to us, the lounge was very cosy and full of books and a computer with free internet. The room was not very big, but big enough and we have slept well. There is also a fine kitchen were you can get tea and can cook for yourself. And last but not least, a terrace in front of the house where we could eat in the sun!
It was a pleasant stay.
