Tucked just off the main road of Tavistock, you'll find the pub "the union". The owner is such a character, and you'll warm to him straight away. He'll make your stay worth while. The accommodation is tucked out the back of the pub. It's spotless, with double bunk pods and a curtain for privacy. The beds are so comfy too, you'll sleep like a log especially after a few strong ciders. The shower room/ bathroom is also spotless and well maintained.
I have travelled extensively around the world and can honestly say this is one of the best hostels/ bunkhouses I have stayed in.
I'd recommend this place to everyone!!!!
