Such a perfect little hostel. Loveliest staff I've ever come across in a hostel, and makes for a very home-y stay. Not a loud or party atmosphere so look elsewhere if you are looking for that, but a wonderful place in Plymouth literally minutes away from the city centre and Hoe Sea Front. Very recommended.


It needs knocking down

Nice hostel! Staff was very helpful. Location is great! It was not the cleanest place, but it was bearable.


Stayed 1 night while in Plymouth for work. Nice comfortable bed, but no lockers to lock belongings away within dorms. Fully equipped kitchen. Shower room was fully flooded in the morning, which was not ideal.


Our host was really compliant and helpful. Thanks a lot.


The location of the hostel was good, since it is close to the city center and the harbour. However, the hostel itself needs some renovation. The facilities are very old and therefore the whole hostel does not really feel clean.On top, the rooms are very small and the furniture is old and could be renewed. I would not go there again and would also not recommend it since I feld uncomfortable. A expected higher standards, especially since I slept in less developed countries cheaper and better!
