 Sir Francis Drake

Plymouth is a coastal naval town in the county of Devon in the South West of England. Plymouth largely has a reputation as being a bit "rough," with a relatively high portion of poverty, as well as a very lively, and slightly crazy nightlife; however, Plymouth still has a lot to offer, with a fruitful maritime history, many historic buildings, museums, an aquarium, and an old natural harbour. Plymouth is also an ideal base for many excursions to nearby attractions, such as hiking or cycling trips to Dartmoor, sailing or kayaking trips to Mouth Batten Peninsula, and boat trips to visit the naval warships. There is also a regular ferry service that operates to the nearby Mount Batten Peninsula.

The Barbican District of Plymouth, also known as Old Plymouth, is home to many historic Tudor- and Jacobean-style buildings, many of which have now been converted into bed and breakfasts (guesthouses), restaurants, galleries, and small boutique shops.

There are many accommodation options, ranging from bed and breakfasts (or guesthouses), to luxury hotels and resorts, to holiday resorts, caravan parks and of course hostels in Plymouth. Hostels in Plymouth provide all the usual hostel services, such as free Wi-Fi or internet access, free city information and city maps, communal areas, hot water showers and either a complimentary breakfast or access to a communal kitchen. Some Plymouth hostels provide rental services for bikes, snorkel equipment, and kayaks. Those Plymouth hostels that don’t provide these services can usually recommend a nearby rental company. Hostels that are located in the Barbican District will almost certainly be in either a Tudor or Jacobean historic building.
