Liked: Relatively spacious bedrooms

Disliked: The cold. The heating was not turned on and there was no prospect of it being turned on. One resident said she had asked for the heating to be turned on but was told that the heating was turned off because it was summer. The cold water tap in our room did not work. International travellers like us need to have heating so we can get our damp clothes dry and we can warm up after being out in the cold weather all day. The sand in the showers. If you had a shower you stood on sand. Then you walked through sand and could wipe the sand off your feet on the carpet. No lock on our bedroom door. We blocked it with our belongings. Suspect hygiene: the tea towels were too dangerous to use. Breakfast did not happen at 8 am, the appointed time, There was no milk. Cavalier treatment of the residents by ignoring their needs and treating them casually. We went down at 8 am for breakfast but it was not happening. The kitchen floor had just been washed and the bench cleaned but the same dangerous tea towels were left on the bench. Ver light duvet or dune on the bed, inadequate for the season. The staff were mostly unavailable.

Liked: - the residents were really friendly, and, shortly after my arrival, asked me to join them on their night out. I enjoyed my stay so much I returned the following weekend! For the price you can't beat what you get- a large shower and toilet block, large TV, big film collection, a room to store boards and wetsuits, large kitchen with 2 fridges, several sofas, front and back patios, Alfie the resident dog.... -a safe is available at reception for your valuables, so you can't really complain... - I found all the bedding, sinks and toilets to be clean -The staff (Dave and Lorna) are friendly and helpful and I saw them check residents in even when they were not 'on duty' and reception had closed I would recommend this hostel if you want to meet friendly people, enjoy the surf, no curfews, and laid back atmosphere!

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Liked: It had a very relaxed and laid back feel, the place was clean and pretty well maintained. Great store room for surf gear and hot showers, you could leave your board and wetsuit etc. and it would be safe...had no problems with leaving possessions there even though there were no locks or keys. Good location being equal distance between Fistral and the town beaches. Staff were helpful. And comfy mattresses!

Disliked: Even though it turned out to be fine leaving our belongings in the hostel though there weren't locks to the doors, it would have been good to have had lockers to put things in.
