The hostel was quite busy and because of the architecture it was quite loud in the public rooms like kitchen, dining room etc.
Apart of this, our room ( Shared room with 6 beds) was too small. Because it was fully booked, you nearly hadn't any place in the room to put your bag to, the wardrobe/locker was broken. Because we were on the ground floor, you couldn't really open the window widely, so it had stunk in the room.
There were only two sockets in the room, underneath the lower beds, so no chance to charge your camera or mobile phone except in the lounge. The lounge was quite cold and uncomfortable, but the people met there to charge their electric things. Wi-Fi was also only available in some of the public areas.
We were happy to stay only one night there, because it wasn't cosy and comfortable at all. But very nice staff and a good location to start your day in Dartmoor n.p.
