Hatten ein Problem mit der Buchung, die Lady hat zwar probiert dies zu regeln, ihr Interesse daran war aber nicht so groß, hat sich bei der Abfahrt nicht einmal verabschiedet!Ich hab zum gleichen Preis im Hilton geschlafen wie in dieser schrecklichen Herberge, laut, das Doppelzimmer für diesen Preis eine Frechheit, da kann ich gleich ins Hotel, die Duschen und WC dreckig und kleinst für so viele Leute, schade um jede Zeit, die man dort verbringt. Dann gab sie uns auch noch den falschen Code, sodass wir nicht hineinkamen, Wahnsinn! Man sollte sich einmal den Standard in Boscastle und Linda dort ansehen, dann weiß man wie das viel angenehmer, besser und schöner geht. In Coverack zahlt man nur für den Meerblick. Gut, dass wir danach in Land`s End und in Boscastle waren, das war einfach super.Ich kenne sehr viele Jugendherbergen auf der Welt und deshalb kann ich auch diese Bewertung abgeben.

Sehr steile Zufahrt, dafür einmalige Ausblicke.

Tolle Lage, nette Mitarbeiter! Blöd ist der Billardtisch im Essbereich, da man nicht in Ruhe essen und reden kann. Die Mülltrennung war nicht verständlich /vorhanden.

Great place close to village. Good for walking and water based activities. No phone signal though! Be careful on approach as roads are narrow with quite a few blind bends.
