Not too bad a walk from the centre city but I really was not a fan of the hostel itself. The place did not feel all that clean to me and the shower was cold and was like a drip. I have certainly stayed in better hostels. However, did feel safe here which I guess is a priority.

I stayed for two nights in this hostel and everything was clean and tidy. Staff was also really friendly. However, 1 toilet for one floor, even though there were several on the ground floor, is not enough. One stair was also missing at the loft bed, making it quite hard to climb up. There is absolutely no reason why you...

The guys at reception were great;very friendly. The hostel is central and very convenient with most things i.e. wifi supplied. Also excellent showers, not something you always find at a hostel. I used it as my mum is in residential care nearby and this is a lot cheaper then a B&B so I will definitely be back

A lot of place, good wifi, kitchen with several fridges, good soft beds for my back, space in rooms, tv in salon. Clean and hot water hot. Perfect, with a price a little over my usual target. Ive been in 13 hostels in uk and this one is the best. Would be back.

Stayed here a couple of weeks ago (returning guest) as it is so close to everything in Exeter. The Hostel itself is very good, and the services are what you would expect in a Hostel. Warm beds, nice bathrooms, Wifi, good kitchen etc. However while making the booking my girlfriend and I were unfortunate enough to get through to a...

Fantastic Hostel, I spent three weeks in Exeter and when I comed back at the Hostel I felt at home. The hostel is very nice, full of poster and amazing pictures that the owner took in various part of the world, the rooms are clean, the showers are fantastic and very large and there's an equipped kitchen.

I stayed here for only one night, but it's a good place to stay. Staff are friendly, they let me drop my bag earlier than check-in time and also gave me advice on where to go to town. They even take you to your room! The bathrooms are very clean, and the room I was staying in was really spacious...

The staff were lovely, I didn't come across any 'rude' staff during my stay. Although it was a short stay for a gig in Exeter, I thought the place was perfect. The 'living' area as you walk in consists of tables, seats and sofa's for people to hang out and there were plenty of people on their laptops when I...
