Very helpful and friendly staff. It has a well stocked bar. Comfortable rooms and well equipped self catering kitchen. Just a short 15 minute walk into Penzance. A great centre to explore the tip of Cornwall.

Hello Karen, thank you for your great comments. It is great to know that my team behaved themselves when I was away!

I hope to see you again soon. Paul

"Dorms are single sex. Just ask if you want to move to another dorm or if you would prefer a quiter room."
"sleep early, because an old man woke up the dorm at 6:30 am and didn't care."
"Don't go in July or August. They allow campers in their back garden to crowd the hostel."
"Room 22 is hot and small - cramped for 4 people."
US$33 - US$97 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
