LIAT airlines true to reputation did not keep our flight schedule. Arrived 8 hours late..just before midnight. Called and was given hostel access. Clean, functional, convenient...

We stayed for three days, it is located on the upper floor of a two story building five overlooking Falmouth Harbour across the street. It was filled with sailors like ourselves who were crewing on boats for the Classic or race week. Dennis and Jules were great hosts and provided cheap accommodation, food and drink for those looking for a...

I booked 15 nights at the Waterfront Hostel with its charming owners Dennis and Julia… I needed a base from which to visit friends on the island and attend a seven day day sailing course. The hostel is in a fantastic location within Falmouth, everywhere being within a short walk. Julia cooked up a wicked breakfast every morning and my...

In many parts of the world to sit in bar / breakfast room like this on first floor with a view over Falmouth harbour and all the yachts etc would cost a fortune. Here with clean rooms and great hosts, as previous review, you will have a great stay. The rooms are simple with no air con, have shower within...

One of the few hostels in the Lesser Antilles, this is a good one. Big beds, not crowded, lovely public area. great views, near to amenities, and very warm and inviting owners. It's great value at $25 a night for the dorm bed. Private rooms are also available.

I actually live in Antigua but on the other side of the island. A couple of times a year we spend the weekend at the Waterfront because it is the perfect place to make a home away from home. The rooms are comfortable and the owners are very nice. They really make you feel at home and help you get...

Stayed for 3 days in January 2013. Dennis and Jules are the perfect hosts and the location is superb. This is not luxury but if you are backpacking. joining or leaving a yacht or just looking for a budget room this is what you need. Clean single/double rooms with a sink and shower, or a bunk room for those on...

Myself and a sailing colleague stayed at Waterfront for a few days following a sailing trip. It is located in an ideal location to enjoy all the local restaurants/bars etc in Falmouth Harbour and English Harbour, the local beach (Pigeon Beach) is approx 10/15 mins walk away, so is obviously a good place for sailors to stay before or after...

“The hostel is very quiet in the low season (May to November) which is good because there are rooms always available, but doesn't help with the atmosphere or meeting people (but the pub, 'Life on the Corner', is only a 5 minute walk away).”
