The room was better than we thought it would be and it was a cheerful, welcome stay.

I wish I'd been more decisive as well as assertive whilst downstairs (with the kids) at 1:30 am when I couldn't sleep and had a headache.


Really good location, helpful staff and very nice that they didn't put all of the guests in one room: I was lucky and was on my own in a 6 bed room...


Our bus arriving into Ilfracombe was over 2hrs late and we didn't get to the Hostel till after midnight, the friendly lady there stayed up for several hours to let us in, was very impressed by this! Everything else here is pretty standard and you can't go wrong by staying a few nights here.
