Welcome to Newquay International Backpackers

Hostel Accommodation at Newquay International BackpackersWe are a friendly backpackers hostel located in England’s surfing capital of Newquay. If your looking for budget accommodation in a friendly informal 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 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 communal lounge area, where the occassional music jam takes place, 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 ideally placed for the famous surfing beaches as well as the equally famous Newquay night life, and there is no curfew so as they say it’s ‘open all hours’.

Things to do

Newquay is the surfing capital of the UK with world class surfing beaches just a short walk from the hostel and a number of other fantastic surfing beaches a short drive away. If you would like to learn to surf most of them have surf schools on the beach and wet suit/board hire is also available.

However, if surfing is not your thing then the hostel is great central location to explore Cornwall from. There are coastal walks, horse riding, fishing, golf, zoo, diving, the Eden Project, and other famous gardens all within the area. In about an hours drive you could be visiting Tintagel, Lands End, the Lizard, St Ives and St Michaels Mount. Then in the evening join the thriving party scene of Newquay with it’s vibrant eateries, clubs, music venues and cinema showing the latest releases.

Newquay has something for everyone with a taste for life and the Backpackers is a great place to make your base.
