Le papillon hostel review (cabin room) (4/10) The atmosphere The atmosphere was pure intrigue. No other word can describe it. It was like going into a country farmhouse which was built in another age. On arrival you notice a large, setback from the road, white building straight away exuding peace and tranquility. It was a challenge to find the checkin...

Stayed here with family after going to watch my brother pass out in the Navy in Plymouth. What a lovely stay in Torquay! Stayed here 2 nights and really enjoyed it. Firstly, the hostel was brill. The rooms are decorated in crazy bright colours but I found it spirit-lifting (some may find it headache triggering). Everything seemed really clean and...

We stayed only one night at Le Papillon and were really happy with the rooms. Plenty of space, well presented and the mature garden was beautiful. The owner/staff were very friendly and took the time to talk to us and our children. The rooms were very large with really nice high ceilings and large windows. Rooms were clean and all...

I stayed for a long weekend - the hostel was comfortable, attractive and easy-going, friendly staff and guests, and a great price. Lovely colourful rooms with comfortable beds, and two nice social areas. Would definitely book again! I stayed in dorms, but would love to check out the summer cabins.
