Dorms are not currently available.
Dorm rooms have multiple beds and are shared with other people who may not be travelling together. They are usually more affordable than private rooms as you'll be booking a bed rather than the whole room.
A typical shared dorm room includes bunk beds, a reading light and a storage cupboard for each guest.
Children aged between 12 and 15 can stay in dorm rooms as long as an adult of the same gender accompanies them.
Shared shower and toilet facilities are located near to the room. None of our dorm rooms have en-suite facilities.
Want some privacy? With a private room, you'll be booking the whole room for your stay.
Private rooms typically include a storage cupboard and reading light for each bed, plus a wash hand basin.

Polbrean House is a large Victorian villa built between 1864-67 for local landscape painter Thomas Hart. The house had a dedicated studio built that was extended into the main house by its next owner in 1921. The house became the Polbrean Hotel which, at the time, was the most southerly hotel in mainland Britain.
The hotel was subsequently bought by the National Trust in 1993 and was handed over to YHA following a large refurbishment. YHA opened the hostel officially in 2003.
Meet the team
Manager recommends: Right from the front door you can set out on this beautiful and dramatic stretch of South West Coast Path. Take in the spectacular white sands and turquoise sea of Kynance Cove before cutting across the peninsula to Cadgwith Cove. Here you can watch the small fishing fleet land their catch, enjoy a fresh Cadgwith Crab sandwich and then head back along the coast path to the hostel. This last stretch is particularly beautiful in Spring when all the wild flowers are out, including some that are unique to the area.
