Liked: It's a very laid back place with a country cottage style kitchen and common area.

Disliked: We got there with nobody around. We could leave our luggage, but didn't really feel safe since everybody could enter and leave the building as they liked. There wasn't any place to store valuables. Also there is only one bathroom.

Liked: A place with unique character and charm. very close to dartmoor and the town had sufficient food shops etc very friendly and helpful host

Disliked: initial comment re parking and unloading as the road itself is too narrow to stop. nearbye carpark which was very cleap for overnight usehowever finding the way from car park to hostel was through small pretty housing estate goodsignposting outside the building however the court yard and where to go was confusing if there was nobody around . Basic kitchen but if you bring your own cleaning bits ok.

Liked: It had a nice vibe.

Disliked: When it says that kitchen is fully equipped its not correct - there's a lack of kitchen equipment. + The cleaning (except in the nice bunkroom) was not satifying. + overall the place seemed a little messy.
