The room had all we needed although moving the beds revealed a lack of detail in the cleaning as the floor beneath them was covered in crap. Location was ideal with everything we needed within walking distance. Apparantly a notouriously rough area but we encountered no problems. Friendly staff and people.

If I could, I would give this hostel a 0. Not a 2. THERE IS A CURFEW ON THE DORMS. It looks as though they changed this after I raised the issue of it not being stated anywhere on the page. In fact, I was under the impression that there wasn’t one at all, so when I arrived, I was...

Stayed here for a couple of days using Plymouth as a base to explore the area. Hostelbookers screwed up my booking but the staff accommodated me. Clean and friendly. Good budget accommodation. The location was within walking distance of the centre too.

Dirty & badly maintained. I can't believe this place is allowed to trade. It hasn't been cleaned, there are holes in the very worn carpets, there are even holes in the walls. Disgusting. It's really a doss house, there's no way this could be described as a backpackers / travellers hostel. There's a Globe hostel in Exeter, maybe in other...

Quite a bad experience. The place was quite dirty, and the matress was not confortable at all. I had to be brave to go and get a shower in one of the working bathroom. But well, it is really cheap, so I guess you get what you pay for!

The staff were friendly and the room had all that we needed for a nights stay but the place is v tired and in need of some renovation. For the price it's a fair deal and the location is great with easy access to the city centre and the sea front and Naval Memorial and cracking sea views.

Firt of all is to say that the area is nice where the hostel is. The staff was also really friendly. The room, kitchen and bath are not really nice and needs renovating, but if you just need a place to stay for a night it is ok

I had a very pleasant stay at this cheap & cheerful Hostel with friendly helpful staff and a lively convivial communal area. The Hostel is ideally situated, close to the City centre, port and the lively night-life of Union Street and the charm of The Barbican. Thoroughly recommended for budget travellers passing through or holidaying in Plymouth.

Nice hostel in a safe area close to the Hoe and city center. Located in a typical English house. Very friendly and helpfull staff. Old school type of a hostel which makes a great atmosphere. Clean kitchen and facilities, a backyard to chill out.
