Real unusual lovely place! it's a converted Railway station house and is in a very quiet secluded part of Okehampton. I had a whole room to myself and had a few lovely nights sleep on a bottom bunk. The communal lounges are a lovely place to relax in. The staff are there when you need them but I didn't really... More

Clean, comfortable & safe They even had a room upstairs with a ping pong table and couches and games. It was probably the best hostel we stayed at, throughout our trip. I stayed in a room with 9 beds (female only) and I was the only one there. My friend stayed in the male room and he was alone, as... More

Stayed for one night on a touring holiday. It was busy but staff were still patient in explaining things. Evening food was expensive for basic meals. Nice area. Bit spilt by a particular noisy obnoxious family but that's what you get at these places!

The Okehampton YHA is an excellent facility with a lot going on. We didn't eat but the building was spacious with free table tennis amongst other activities. Showers were warm and never busy and the bike hire on site was hugely useful and reasonable. Staff were friendly and its only a short walk into Okehampton itself. One of the best... More

We had planned to use this hostel as nothing more than a cheap bed for the night while we explored Devon, but it turned out that it was so fantastic it became more of the focus of the holiday itself than we had intended and we'll have to return to Devon to do more exploring another time. While the sleeping... More

We hired the hostel for a weekend (Escape to... booking) for a church group of 84 ladies (aged 19 to 87!). The hostel staff were so helpful from help with the booking, to answering lots of questions by phone and email before the weekend and during the time we were there. They couldn't have been more accommodating. As we were... More

What do you do when you have 3 grandchildren aged 7,8 and 12 to keep them entertained during the summer holidays? I expect the Youth Hostel holiday is not on the top of everyone's idea's, but thank goodness after speaking to the friendly staff who planned the holiday I followed my instinct and took them all to Okehampton Y.H.A. This... More

This place is like a drug to me now. I first visited in August 2012 with my boys. It was a last min decision to have a break and we only wanted somewhere to kip at night. On our first visit we were met with really friendly staff and were soon signed up to the various activities on offer. So... More

I spent 4 nights camping at this hostel, 3 at the Bracken Tor site and 1 at the Okehampton site. The Bracken Tor site was very good. Located up a hill beyond the village, it's relatively isolated and quiet (but for the white noise of the nearby motorway). I pitched my tent in a pretty lawn ringed by shady trees.... More

Many thanks for your feedback about your stay in April. We are sorry to hear that you found the staff disinterested at Okehampton, as most feedback we have is that our staff are friendly and helpful. I have passed your comments onto the hospitality management team for review, but clearly as its over 3 months since your stay it is... More

We visited this hostel over the ten tors weekend and booked a six bed room. The atmosphere in the hostel was fabulous over the weekend with many of the other families staying all supporting their children for the ten tors. The room itself was clean and the bed linen was clean, the bathrooms however were really dirty and both myself... More
