Ocean Backpackers is an Independently owned hostel situated close to Ilfracombe’s picturesque working fishing Harbour.
This cool, clean and friendly budget accommodation offers excellent facilities for walkers, cyclists, surfers, divers as well as families, schools, activity groups and of course not forgetting the Independent traveller!
Facilities include a self-catering kitchen, dining area, communal lounge with t.v, free internet/wi-fi, a large storage basement, patio area and free car-park.
Nestled in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Ilfracombe has many shops, galleries, pubs and restaurants and has a rich café culture. It is fastly becoming an "arts destination" since the Harbour became home to Damien Hirst’s statue “Verity” in 2012.
Ilfracombe is the start of the Route 27 Coast-to-coast ride to Plymouth and the South West Coast Path provides wonderful walks with stunning scenery that take your breath away!
Just a short drive away you will find the sandy surf beaches of Woolacombe, Croyde and Saunton Sands and a short walk away is the privately owned Tunnels Beaches steeped in Victorian history.
We welcome groups of all sizes and any age of traveller that enjoys the buzz of a Backpackers and has a love of the great outdoors!
Weekly discounts are available and the whole hostel can be hired for exclusive use for groups of up to 54.
