This section is dedicated to take away all your "I wish someone had told me that before I went!" experiences. This way, you can spend less time settling in, and more time making new friends in your chosen hostel. We share our insider knowledge of tips, tricks and important things to look out for in Newquay.

Newquay, a spunky town where surfers thrive, transforms during the summer into a bustling mass of holiday-goers. While the city has had problems with underage drinking in the past, it is working closely with law enforcement and locals to straighten up and make it more difficult for younger teens to participate in dangerous drinking activities.

There is a lot to do within the city itself -- surfing, swimming, and scuba for the water-eager, as well as plenty of shops and beaches and arcades and bars for the water-weary. At night, the party life is vibrant and relaxed (except for the occasional stag or hen party that walks by) and there are plenty of different venues for everyone. Surfing is a popular culture here, and everyone is welcome, from beginners to the old-timers. There are no cliques or elite crowds among the surfers -- everyone swims together and then hangs out together at night. It is not difficult to mingle with the locals.

If you get tired of the sand and surf and wish to do some sightseeing, there are several attractions in Cornwall that are accessible by train, bus, or car. Head down south to Lands End and Penzance and see St. Michaels Mount or St. Ives for the day. Inland, you can go see the Eden Project, which boasts huge greenhouses, which each take at least forty-five minutes to walk through -- they offer a discount on your ticket if you arrive by bus!). Or head up north to Tintagel and see the famous ruins of a castle associated with King Arthur on the cliffside. And don't forget to check out the puffins if they're around. While you are staying at a Newquay hostel, you will never run out of things to do!
