    this was a great place to stay, we meet some of the backpackers that were working there and they were so hopeful and friendly. we got the ‘penthouse’ room which meant taking about a million steps but it wasn’t too bad after a while

    I had a great time in Torquay and the facilities were just what I needed, a comfy place to rest my weary head. Everyone is very friendly like family but you've got your space. Their rules show that they value and respect others. I would stay here again.

    I was especially pleased with the welcoming atmosphere and nice folks. I felt free after long walks to cook in the kitchen and chill with the staff. I want to thank Tammy for her advice on the local area and being so helpful. This place is a bargain.

    The hostel is not far from the town center and the staff was friendly and helpful. The overall atmosphere in the hostel was student-like and relaxed. My room and the kitchen were not very clean, the staff couldn't find my booking but it all turned out ok. The hostel did not have a laundry facility (although I saw someone using the washing machine), so I used it in another hostel which was 10-minute walk from this hostel.

    The rooms were good and location pretty good. Came in though and somebody else was in the room asleep. Not a problem and I'm sure an honest mistake just not good when you leave valuables locked thinking they're safe, only for someone else to have been given a key...

    Close to high street. 10min downhill walk to beach. Friendly atmosphere and staff. Comfy bed with curtain. Bathrooms not great for hostel cleanliness. Thin walls.

    Turned up to find I wasn't expected - though I had booked. Luckily they had a bed available so it wasn't a problem. The staff were friendly if incredibly laid back. the bathroom facilities could do with a deep clean - some of the shower outlets were blocked so a shower meant standing in some pretty grim scummy water and trying not to flood the bathroom. The other residents were pretty friendly. I was only there for one night - I got the impression they prefer people to stay long term.

    Torquay backpackers was fine but such a random place. The people were friendly but the workers were never around and just confusing. The bathrooms were fine besides the black stuff that came up from the drain while you showered. The dorm was dark and dingy and there was a crazy man sleeping below me(not the hostels fault but it was sketchy). Everyone cleaned up in the kitchen which was good. I wouldnt Recommend this place but I dont Think there are any other hostels so good luck.
