I have been to Torquay numerous times now and always return to Le Papillon. I love the cosy atmosphere that feels like a home away from home. Marga, the owner, and her staff are very friendly and helpful. It is impeccably clean and tidy and great value for money. Free fast wifi access and full self catering kitchen with everything... More

First time I've ever rated anything online but frankly this place deserves it. outstanding value for money. Fun decor, decent showers,nice kitchen and clean, everything you hope for-but in my experience rarely find- in a hostel.

My partner and I had the joy of staying 2 nights at "Le Papillion". We were put into one of the new garden cabins which certainly had the "WOW" factor, immaculately clean. It is a unique and very beautiful setting a stones throw from Torquay itself and offers travellers to the area a little bit of luxury for a fraction... More

We stayed in the bungalows in the garden. There are only two, and they provide privacy and a really nice setting for a couple. Sitting out are, log burner and bbq. The owner is very helpful, and the main building well equipped

We stayed at this hostal last weekend as a football tour group. Up on entering we knew we had to pay a £10 deposit to the owner/manager who was not impressed we had chosen her place to stay and said she does not take football groups which does not state that on hostel bookers. We then had to proceed and... More

Although I stayed here in the off season with only two other residents, I had one of the best stays I've ever had in a hostel. I feel bad even calling it a hostel. A brilliant kitchen and outdoors area, great beds, showers and common areas. I had the most relaxing four nights at Le Papillon, made all the more... More
