The only hostel in Exeter, price lower than average but still quite expensive. Staff is helpful, facilities are OK. The pillow is not very comfortable.

I just stayed for one night, but it was great! The room was really big and we had a lot of space (even though we were 8) and it looks more like a home than a hotel which is really cool because you feel more comfortable. The wifi however doesn't work upstairs (well it's really hard to get it and harder to keep it). But it works perfectly downstairs so it's not really a problem. The showers are modern and clean and there is hot water, and the toilets are clean to.

I could name poor Atmosphere, short reception hours, not quite helpful nor friendly staff and so on, but truth be told the only problem is the misleading name of the place for this is surely not a backpackers, nor tourist accommodation since pretty much everyone apart from us was staying long term. Knowing that, it comes to no surprise that the kitchen storage & fridges were overfilled, dorms full with bags&stuff and the place having no traveler's vibe at all.

The staff were welcoming and helpful and the guests nice. Excellent facilities, good wifi, big showers, equipped kitchen. Creaky beds, slamming doors and incredibly loud snoring means interrupted sleep, still a happy place to be.

Apart from the showers, which are brand new, everything else was dirty. The rooms were smelly.

Whilst I didn't need to stay here in the end the staff sent me a very helpful email about how to get there and the hostel conditions. When I emailed to cancel I received a prompt reply saying it was no problem and there was no charge. Very professional. Thank you

Great hostel for a chilled-out stay in Exeter. Ideal locations between the city centre and the Quay.

Bed was comfy. Room was big for 8 people. Showers excellent. Bathrooms, kitchen, bedding were clean. Staff friendly. £5 key deposit. They offered to pay this back the night before if I wanted to check out earlier than 8:30am. Downstairs toilets were useful as the ones on my floor were in use when I needed them.

The staff were very friendly and helpful, even when I frantically needed to print out some Ryanair tickets. Good location as well, close to High St., the Quay and the coach station.

Nice hostel in a great city. Location is good when it comes to access to the city centre (short walk), but also has the downside of high noise levels due to the fact that it is located right on a more or less major street. Bathroom facilities were amazing, the kitchen was great, the dorms were okay. Would stay here again.
