Fantastic Location

We are 2 minutes walk from the South West Coast Path and 5 minutes walk to the train station, Falmouth University campus and Falmouth town centre. It is also easy walking distance to Falmouth’s other main attractions, and pretty central for exploring all else that Cornwall has to offer.

The Beach on our Doorstep

The stunning Gyllyngvase Beach – one of Britain’s best Blue Flag beaches – is only two minutes from our door. Plus two more beaches within a ten minute coastal walk.


Prices start at £19, including a simple complimentary breakfast plus use of our self-catering kitchen – complete with Aga!

We are re-opening!!

Come and enjoy Cornwall again from Falmouth Lodge – right next to the beach too!!

We know that many of you are simply longing to get away - Falmouth Lodge is just as excited to be able to open up and welcome you back through our doors again.

This will happen gradually – starting in April with our exciting new addition to the hostel – “FlipFlop” - our self-contained one bedroom apartment, which is an annex to the back of the hostel with its own completely separate access. Check out our listing for availability from April 12th!

Following that, our rooms will open gradually from May 17th, room only, with a dedicated bathroom, but there will not be any shared social indoor spaces – no kitchen or lounge until July. There will be a kettle and tea and coffee provided in your room.

Most exciting tho’ is the option to rent out the whole house for your own family or group (up to 14 beds) exclusively from the beginning of July – maybe earlier!! What could be better than being together again and only two minutes from the beach?

We will, of course, be regulated by Government guidelines – so – do check out the website for availability and dates. Our room configurations have changed, in order to give everyone more space and we have implemented extra cleaning policies to keep us all safe.

As always, you get the best price by booking directly with us from this website. But also please call if you have any particular queries.

Hang on in there and see you soon!!
