Description provided by property

Ocean Backpackers is a homely hostel with a laid back atmosphere and no curfew.

Situated in a quaint North Devon town built around an ancient fishing harbour.

Central to the harbour itself, the bus station, high street, pubs, restaurants and many beaches including surfers favourites: Croyde, Saunton and Woolacombe. If the surf is down, don\'t despair, just try the other activities available; quad biking, paint balling, kayaking, adventure swimming, mountain biking, horse riding and microlighting.

Adrenalin not your thing? Then take a trip to Lundy Island, spot rare birds, seals, basking sharks and dolphins. Wonderful walking country, the coastal path between Woolacombe and Lynton is breathtaking and Exmoor has an abundance of walks through Britain\'s most spectacular scenery.

The hostel facilities include lounge, free internet access, self-catering kitchen, surf board storage and a car park.

Ilfracombe has plenty of summer work so why not come and hang out here for a while?
