The Hostel is perched on a cliff top.  It's within easy walking distance of Tintagel for sightseeing, restaurants, shops and bars. The Lounge/Dining area has a self-catering Kitchen, and a wood-burner makes the Hostel a really cosy space to be.  You get a real sense of the age of the hostel from the beautiful exposed beams and old stone chimney.
