Backpackers Stop 

Welcome to The Backpackers Stop

We will be open from 7th August 20202.
Following advice from our local authority Environmental Health Officer we are unable to take bookings for more than one household /group per night.
This is due to restrictions involving our building layout and social distancing within shared facilities. Therefore, during August we can take a minimum of 4+ guests in a group.
The good news is your group will have sole use of the hostel for the price of a dorm.
Please be aware that we need contact details of the lead person in a group for contact and trace protocols.
If you are unfortunate to contract covid 19 during your stay, you will need to isolate onsite as you cannot travel by public transport (ferry/plane) until you provide a negative test. You will be charged the usual tariff and will be put in touch with the relevant groups to assist you during that time.(as we will need to self isolate also.) 
So please be wise and do not travel if you are displaying symptoms.
6 bed dorm. £150. Per night
8 bed dorm   £200. Per night
There is no minimum night stay.
Please contact us through email to book:
