When I arrived the guy at the deal wasn't very friendly. He didn't even direct me to my room properly. Luckily it's small so it's pretty easy to find. The wifi doesn't stretch to the rooms which I think it should really. Sometimes if you have important things to do online you don't want to have to sit in a loud common room. Location is great! But no parking and parking is very expensive! I also was in a room by myself which was nice- I guess it wasn't very busy!

The lady at the front desk was kind of half helpful and didn't seem to like me asking questions about things to do in the area. There isn't a common room so it's super anti social I found. Clean but just not the best hostel I've been too.

Didn't end up trying here due to a flight mix up but tried to get in contact twice and heard no response! But strange that their email address looks like a personal account and not an official business one.

Staff weren't the best. Although they were helpful when you asked for something they weren't particularly friendly compared to the other HI hostels I've been to on my trip. But nice facilities. They need aircon in the rooms though - it gets unbearably hot at night!

Not the nicest hostel but really great events every night. Had loads of fun but there's drinking outside the rooms which is pretty loud if you need sleep and it's quite intimidating being by yourself trying to go out there. The staff were super fun though!

I was luckily only stopping for one night before an early bus but it was so disgusting. It was pretty cheap but smelled. Staff weren't helpful and were pretty annoying. They seemed to be annoyed that I wanted to leave early to catch a bus and that I still expected my deposit back! Wouldn't recommend this hostel to anyone it's gross.

Really great hostel and everyone's so helpful and friendly. Little expensive though for a hostel. I mean it's super nice but if you're on a budget it's not great. I added an extra night to my trip and it cost more then a motel!

This hostel is actually called Kavos bay. If you get in a taxi and say seaside village rooms they won't have a clue where it is!! Although a nice hostel and very very helpful and caring owners, its very far away from anything really so it is beautiful but its a long walk to get anywhere.

went to bed and could feel bugs in the bed then was forced to get up at 2am to move to a different room as I'm allergic to bed bug bites and both my arms were swollen by this point. they then moved me and my friends to a different room only to put in a new set of people with out dealing with the problem! they also have no lockers or safe places for valuables. hated this hostel.

this hostel is so hard to find and if you call the phone it will go through to a booking agent so you wont be able to find directions. its small rooms but they have fitted far to many beds in each room so the bunk beds are pretty much touching so you might as well be sleeping in the same bed as a stranger. there is no security lockers for valuables which is very unhelpful and ii found the lady was making up excuses like being tired for the lack of service there was.

Bit annoyed the guy said I could park across the road between 6pm and 10am and by 7pm I had a bloody parking ticket!

View Property Reply

Parking is free between 6pm and 10am.if the client had a ticket after 6pm then she is entitled to challenge it with Plymouth Council as it is clearly marked on the parking meters 6pm-10am Monday - Sunday inc bank holidays.

The hostel was very welcoming and had a great atmosphere. Everyone was so friendly and everyone who was staying there was great company. The shower is pretty gross but everything else is fine. The rooms are a good size and it feels like a home not a hostel. They also so surf hire and trips to paradise valley which was SO nice! I would definitely stay there again. Thanks Hasan!

Was awesome at this hostel!! It was so clean yet it was still cheap!! Also loved the bar crawl which got everyone socialising with other hostels as well - might have been better for us as we are English travellers and all the benecassim people were there so it was easy to communicate in English with everyone. Reception were so helpful and free Internet was good too! Will probably be returning as it was lovely there!!

absolute whole - the banisters broke off as i was walking up the stairs and the wwalls were crumbling. not a very social hostel compared to ours we've been too and the atmosphere wasn't 'young and happy'. location was pretty good and easy to get a metro into the centre. toilets and showers were disgusting.

Hi Jessica, Thanks for your feedback. We fixed the banister after it's been reported to us. We do our best to give our guests the best atmosphere. We hope you enjoyed your time in Paris. The Young & Happy Management
