Staff picture 1

We are a friendly backpackers hostel located in the UK’s surfing capital of Newquay. If you’re looking for budget accommodation in a positive environment then this is the place for you. We have private rooms and dorms all at very reasonable prices per night with bedding supplied and a cereal and toast breakfast included.

We welcome surfers, walkers, cyclists and those out to explore Cornwall, with an emphasis on making new friends and meeting people. There is a relaxed, chilled out feel to the hostel with a TV room, and a communal lounge area where the occassional music jam takes place. We have an open courtyard area for sunny days and those balmy summer evenings after a day on the beach or exploring. Barbecues are a frequent feature during the summer in the courtyard where you can chat over your day with like minded people, it’s a laid back lifestyle here where you “come as a guest and leave as a friend”. The hostel is very close to Towan and Fistral surfing beaches, and we can store up to 50 surf boards in our board room.

Newquay International BackpackersFacilities at the hostel include a variety of shared and private rooms all with sinks with hot and cold water, hot showers, fully equipped communal kitchen & BBQ, free tea and coffee, free Wi Fi, TV room, with a large selection of movies, chill out lounge, surfboard and wetsuit storage, mini sauna, and a laundry  service for a nominal cost.
