We had booked to stay at Reef Surf Lodge, upon arriving at Reef we where absolutely mortified with the lodge and our room. We abruptly left and agreed we needed somewhere new to stay.... More

Was part of the surf club group with Exeter, and The Escape was ideal. Good room's, excellent cooked breakfast (just what was needed!) and some of the best staff and organisation I've seen at any hostel. Cheers Jerry!

Having used The Escape twice now to host our biggest annual weekender surf adventure to Newquay, Exeter Uni Surf Club can safely say that this place rocks and is ideal for students and groups of young adults. Comfy beds, scrummy cooked breakfast, friendly/helpful staff, and a top quality bar to chill out in, its been perfect in catering for our... More

Went for my birthday. Jerry (owner) is really welcoming. It's a great lodge. I've been to pretty much all of them now and I vote this one the best. It's also in a good location with free parking. The bar is also very cheap and opens to 4am great for pre and post drinks :)

Thank you so much to this amazing hostel for putting up with a rowdy bunch of 100 students. Nothing was too much hassle for them. The hostel has a very laid back atmosphere and the staff were all friendly and helpful whenever we needed anything, they even went out of their way to look after us beyond our expectations! The...

The Escape was excellent, the location, the facilities and the staff were all just what we needed on a stag do. The owner helped me organize a whole bunch of activities and made sure that we had a great time, I would recommend The Escape to anyone.

Gerry the owner is very accomodating, and helpful in every way, That Restaurant - we paid £10 a head to sample 3 dishes in their restaurant,... More
