My son had an accident - which was down to him and I do appreciate the hostel giving his friends parking permits for the car - my son was the driver. Thank you for that. However - I suggest you limit the opening aperture of upstairs windows You don't want that happening again.

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... More

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... More

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... More

Staff were rude, inconsiderate and felt the need to keep our deposit for being slightly noisey when returning from a night out! Rooms are shoddy and noticed a lot of flys and insects just freely roaming around please consider other places as the price to stay here is expensive and you have a good chance of not seeing your deposit...

What this group call 'slightly noisy' consisted of them having a fight in their room where someone got badly glassed!!! urinating in a wardrobe and all over the carpet, harrassing girls in a seperate dorm and then being ejected by the police at 3am. As a consequence, the blood and urine covered carpet, together with the urine covered wardrobe had... More
