St Ives Backpackers Reviews
Below average hostel Apr 11, 2011
I stayed in St Ives Backpackers when travelling solo to Cornwall. It was quite difficult to find it, thankfully there is a tourist information centre in St Ives so they directed me to the hostel. Was staying in a 6 bed dorm which was just average but acceptable. The only problem was that there was only one electric socket in the room and everybody wanted to use it all the time for phones, cameras, hair straighteners and so on.. so a bit not convenient. A bathroom was far away from the dorm and it was absolutely disgusting. Not clean at all. And the shower curtains were not any good either. I have stayed in several hostels but never seen such a bathroom..
The good point is the location. There is a small supermarket very close to the hotel and the beach is not far either.
St Ives is as amazing place so you won't be spending much time in the hostel anyway, but the bathroom will definitely make you wish you were staying somewhere else.. So think twice before booking!
