DO NOT STAY HERE. I've stayed in hostels in South America, Asia and Africa and never experienced such a dirty, smelly and run-down place to sleep in my life. Unfortunately the owner seems to completely oblivious to the horrendous conditions he is "hosting" guests in, and so I do not expect it will improve at all. I don't care how much of a shoestring budget you are on... if you want to feel remotely rested and ready to enjoy your travels, work or whatever brings you to Plymouth DO NOT STAY HERE.
The bathrooms are very dirty and decrepit - taps don't work, shower doors fall off, toilet seats are broken etc. Bedrooms are appallingly dirty and smelly, the bedding is so desperately old and towels falling apart. And there is NO atmosphere here, in fact it's downright weird.
If you read this and book, you know what you're in for. Be smart. Stay elsewhere.
