My partner and I stayed here for 3 nights while visiting family in the area. Altho it is a hostel we had our own double room with ensuite (and a glimpse of sea view!) at a very reasonable price.
You have full use of the lounge and kitchen facilities which seemed very inviting, however we opted to eat out as the place is centrally located in the old part of Ilfracombe and so surrounded by nearby cafes, restaurants & pubs.
The bed was comfy, the room was clean and all-in-all we had a nice stay and would recommend it to anyone on a budget.
