REVIEWS

Here at Ilfracombes biggest (and some would say best) backpackers we pride ourselves on offering top quality youth hostel accommodation to people from all walks of life. At the moment we are very busy keeping University surf clubs happy and judging by the review we recently received on the independent hostel guide website we must be doing something right.
