    Cheapest place to stay in Exeter & good value for money. Short walk to the city center. Full cooking facilities. Regularly cleaned toilets & showers. Obviously, with 8 people in a room, it is going to be hit-and-miss regarding noise disturbance. However, the staff are good about mediating excess noise complaints or addressing serious problems caused by other guests. There are some lockers, but you need to bring your own lock. I just kept my valuables on my person. Met some nice people there.

    Staff were nice, lounge area was good. Bit annoying that the office is only open for a small number of hours in the day to save money. Had to wait a while before i could check in (check in is 4pm not 3:30 as it says on here). Otherwise good stay!

    Very Good

    17 Sep 2021
    The staff were very friendly, and helpful. The kitchen was small but good. TV room with small library was relaxing space. My room (single) was spacious, and clean, Location was good - close to city centre, but still quiet at night. However, the whole place could do with a re-vamp - rationalise toilet and shower provision, re-purpose some rooms, definitely full paint and decorate. And office opening hours, checkin times and general organisation need to be more stable and clear.

    Didn’t stay! Globe Packers had overbooked our dorm for a group party booking despite the fact we had a telephone conversation regarding an extra bed in the dorm prior to our arrival. We were told that we had to split up the group and accept beds in multiple dorms or to ‘F’ off elsewhere! Need I say more.
