We stayed at Globe for a wedding last weekend (August) and can't really fault the service we received. We chose Globe because of the reasonable price, it meant we could stay two nights for cheaper than one night at the travel lodge on m5! We had a HUGE room, with a double and two bunk beds. We were nice and... More

Thank you so much for your kind and fair review. We are very pleased you could find no fault with the service offered by our staff and that you felt we offered good value city centre accommodation. We hope you will choose to stay with us again should you return to our lovely city! More

Having used this hostel in the past we were looking forward to staying there again. Good location, the shower facilities are great and although the beds and bedding are not amazing, they are clean. We booked a 6 bed dorm for the six of us girls as we wanted some privacy and we received an email confirmation. To our dismay,... More

We were rather surprised and perplexed by this recent review. We have made a full investigation into all elements and would like to make the following statement: 1. There is NO record of a group booking of 6 women staying at Globe Backpackers, Exeter in July 2014. 2. We DO NOT have a 6 bed women only dormitory to offer... More

I liked the showers upstairs = clean :-) I didn't like the toilets downstairs = smelly :-( I like the staff = friendly :-) I didn't like the drunk man (train painter?) playing with knife in kitchen = scared :-( Be careful

Very good inn, the staff is very welcoming. The atmosphere is very warm and it is not difficult to meet people. Thank you again for this experience! The price is correct, and the tea, the caffé is free in all moment of the day!

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... More

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.
