3/5 Okay

Business traveller
Disliked: Room comfort
Did not sleep very well due to the mattress being very uncomfortable to sleep on. The cleanliness of the kitchen was not up to scratch, I found crumbs everywhere and the utensils had not been washed properly.

A great hostel.
A lovely hostel in a superb location. Equipped with all the essentials and the bed was quite comfy too. And there's a piano (a big plus for me)! This area of Cornwall is amazing and Holfield made a great base - albeit for only one night this time. Being a bit further out, I would recommend travelling by car if possible. I would book here again.
