    Really lovely incredible people and place, the Plymouth area is a little run down, probably like similar to Great Yarmouth, but we didn’t explore the entire place, I thinks it’s better when you get further in or more towards the town/beaches, there are some good food places that are open till 2am near by, the hostel was great, they had all the facilities we needed and even breakfast in the morning, they wash you bowls and plates which is really nice! They were super friendly and I enjoyed it!

    The staff at Plymouth Backpackers were great, welcoming, helpful and friendly. The facilities were fine for my one night stay. The dorm room had 2 bunks, a small table & chairs, an en suite shower/toilet, towels were provided. There is a communal kitchen/dining room downstairs and hot drinks are available all the time. Breakfast is included - a huge variety of cereals and spreads for bread/toast. I would definitely stay there again.

    James was absolutely friendly during the check-in process and showed me around the facilities and collections at the property. The place is like a mini museum. Free breakfast is also a welcoming touch. However, the general atmosphere is a bit dull, probably because of the nighttime and did not have enough chances to chat with other people.
