Ocean Backpackers

Ocean Backpackers Information Page!

An old fishing port once infamous for stories of smugglers, this Devonshire gem is now better known for its stunning coastline and contemporary arts scene. A popular traveller destination since the Victorian times, Illfracombe has an abundance of traditional pubs, galleries, shops and restaurants. Just a minute’s walk from the charming harbour, Ocean Backpackers is an independent youth hostel which offers modern, clean facilities in a relaxed setting. A communal lounge, spacious kitchen and dining room give this happening hostel a homely feel whilst comfortable rooms with sea views make for an idyllic retreat.
