I was impressed by the meals available on the pre-ordered/pre-paid system. The shared social facilities were very comfortable and spacious.

A really great hostel !!! Nice is the relative proximity to London (about 45 min. drives). Super-friendly staff, great food and especially recommended for motorcyclists, as the parking is paved and flat - we did not always had that on our tour of Cornwall. Whereby the YHA people have to pronounce a BIG LOB at this point - in all the locations where we stayed, everyone has gone to great lengths to park our bikes safely!!!m
