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 closedI would recommend this hostel if you want to meet friendly people, enjoy the surf, no curfews, and laid back atmosphere!

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.
