We are re-opening!! Come and enjoy Cornwall again from Falmouth Lodge Backpackers – right next to the beach too!!
March 15th 2021
Why not rent out our whole Hostel ?? Catch up with those family and friends who you haven’t been able to see – up to 14 beds in five rooms – and in a perfect location between the beach and town
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!!
One bed self-contained apartment available from 12th April. Book early to secure.

Falmouth Lodge Backpacker’s new self contained one bed apartment will be welcoming guests from the 12th April until July. A perfect seaside romantic hideaway and just the tonic after the long hard winter of lock-down.
The hostel will open more rooms gradually, initially without shared communal spaces, in accordance with government guidelines.
Most exciting 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? Click through to Falmouth Lodge’s website for more details.
Our Covid 19 Status
June 28th 2020
Falmouth Lodge Backpackers has been thinking long and hard about re-opening after the Covid19 lockdown. It certainly saddens us, but we really feel, “hand-on-heart” that we will not be able to keep you as Covid-Safe as we would be comfortable with, at this point in time, and in the current environment.
We are therefore, not going to open this year, but will be re-opening in the Spring of 2021 with newly organised rooms, giving everyone more space, plus extra bathroom procedures installed, for everyone’s health protection. We will also be promoting the exciting option of renting the whole hostel for your large family, or group, holiday by the sea, in Cornwall!!
The essence of hostelling is on the enjoyment of shared accommodation and socialising spaces, so we really hope that we’ll be able to return to this again next year when we will know even more about this virus, and may have developed better ways of living with it.
Wishing you all a great summer; STAY WELL, and see you next year!!
If you want to ask about staying and booking next year – please don’t hesitate to contact us directly.
