I stayed for 2 nights in November. to escape the Smoke. I was given a single room in Filter House, the satellite site on the edge of the North Moor. The location is perfect for getting straight into the wilderness for walking or a 15 minute walk/2 minute drive into the town centre. Although I was out hiking most of... More

We had great fun here at Okehampton YHA camping in the Summer holidays. The campsite is relatively small, and in a field adjacent to the YHA car park. We were able to use all the facilities, including self catering kitchen, restaurant, games room and TV room, which made it a great place to stay for all the family. We could... More

Three of us stayed here over the Easter weekend for one night on a cycling tour of Devon. We found the hostel to be very good, with warm, comfortable and clean rooms and bathrooms. Situated by a steam railway track (I believe the hostel was a station house in a former life) gave us some interesting trains to see outside.... More

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.
