The location, amenities and friendly helpful staff
Very clean and tidy hostel, excellent location.
Just the floor of my room not exactly clean.
Brilliant central location. Limited parking but easy to swap between free and paid car park . Good facilities for self catering and close to places for all meal occasions. Easy to reach many local attractions and friendly and helpful staff. We will visit again
very clean and friendly
Excellent location. Great facilities. Clean, tidy, well looked after.
Location is great The one member of staff was help full and friendly, kitchens and bathrooms where will fitted and clean
very small room for a twin single that was cramped with our bags blocking the door and more suited as a single The small beds where so soft they where more like hammocks and I couldnt have stayed longer than one night if I had wanted to shame other wise it was good
Robert was always around, helpful guy.
Great location close to the harbour. Cheap and cheerful nice and clean.
If you're staying at a hostel you don't expect the Ritz!
Place, staff, kitchen is awesome
It was raining :)
Location was good. The hostel staff is very nice.
I didn't like the matress. The shower room wasn´t the best I´ve seen.
Very friendly and welcoming. Close to harbour, restaurants, pubs and some shops. Bedroom basic but clean and comfortable with well maintained shared kitchen, bathrooms and toilets on same landing. Communal TV room with area for reading, music, games, etc. First time at a hostel and very pleasantly surprised Great place, great atmosphere, will definitely visit again :)
Very pleasant staff.
The beds are the poorest quality possible. The smallest room ever.
Staff were friendly, very helpful and accommodating. Car parking on site. Our double en-suite room was sizeable, clean (not a 4 star hotel obviously) and excellent for long or short stay. Our privacy was respected. This accommodation is suitably sited In the centre of Ilfracombe across from the best pasty shop, next door to a highly recommended English tea room and fish and chip shop as well as being only a street away from the best Devonshire ice-cream we have ever tasted (the end ice-cream shop with shutters, on the left as you enter the road to walk down to the harbour). The hostel is only a short walk away form the landmark theatre and is ideally placed for a quiet nights sleep (away from the pubs). We would definitely stay there again and liked the fact that our funds went to the upkeep of the backpacking hostel which offered additional affordable accommodation to meet the needs of young people, families and others. P.S. on an evening, it was great to get a TV that worked and didn't time out as in other accommodation. Just a tip for anyone going there, remember to take your towels (or rent one there) and take your shampoo and shower gel.
A great place with a friendly atmosphere. Warm welcome on arrival and shown around the amenities. Coffee and tea were freely available in the kitchen. All in all a great place to stay :) heart of the harbour area with its restaurants, shops and pubs
Fantastic location, fairly cheap, lovely room with a great view, very clean, friendly staff, we had a double room to ourselves so it felt much like being in a hotel not a hostel. It didn't have an en suite but that didn't really matter, it was a hostel after all! Everything was very clean, free wifi, tv in our room, it was great!
Bed wasn't the comfiest I've ever slept on and our room didn't have an en suite but it is a hostel not a hotel!
This hostel is in a great position close to the beach, harbour, pubs and eateries. Some of the bathrooms appear to be new and all up we had a great experience.
One of the legs collapsed on the bed.
Great stay, upgraded to pent house room with a view. Good bathroom, kitchen facility.
The double bed was a bit worn! Perhaps time for a new mattress?
Good soundproofing. I did not hear music and conversation in the bedroom 2 floors up from the kitchen, dining and lounge.
Bedroom a little cramped for 6 people and their belongings. Bedroom got very hot and there was only one window for air.
