"We had a fantastic time at Ocean Backpackers. As a connisseur of Hostels from a former life,this one was right up there-friendly staff, excellent facilities and a warm welcoming atmosphere. It's also perfectly placed for the Harbour and trips to Lundy and fishing (good cafe next door as well. )This time I was with a school trip, showing a dozen teenagers the delights of North Devon. Recommend highly!"
