Penzance YHA is located in an early Georgian manor house set in landscaped gardens. The hostel offers great views of Cornwall's Mount's Bay and the Lizard Peninsula. Among other attractions, St Michael's Mount and St Ives (home of the Tate St Ives Gallery) are nearby.

Rooms have 2-6+ beds and facilities include laundry, self-catering, kitchen, garden, café and evening meals. Penzance YHA dates back to 1720, can now accommodate up to 100 guests in 22 bedrooms, most with no more than six beds. One room is fully accessible for wheelchair users and a new welcoming reception has also been created.

Penzance is a perfect area for hiking and horse riding. Additionally there’s a harbour, beautiful beaches, cultural centre and Georgian architecture all around.
