There are 3 packpacker hostels in Exmouth and I checked out all before making my decsion. Excape is the best of the bunch, and I did have a good time.
The dorm rooms are HUGE, with 7 beds (why the single?) and a really decent en-suite bathroom. They all have aircon and full length curtains that cover the entire windows. Unfortunately there is no other furniture so no locker for your valubles, but room to spread your belongs about if that is your habit.
Everything was clean, although as I was there in low season I'm not sure how high the standards are- the morning I had a lie-in the girl who was cleaning did the bare minimum in the bathroom only, and as only 2 of us had used it there wasn't much to do.
As others have pointed out, the rooms are in a block directly behind the pub garden and Friday night is party night in Exmouth. This comprises of a DJ, the dressed up locals and a very loud sound system. It went on to just after midnight, which didn't bother me, but if Saturday morning is an early start for you you may want to explore other options.
The central area is an open but undercover space with plenty of benches and barbeques for your use. This wholearea is very unprepossessing but it does leave you options depending on what you're cooking, and how social you feel.
The kitchen is directly off this and has several fridge freezers, with labels and sometimes a pen provided. There is a fair few cooking pots and implements but in busy season you could be queueing for their use.
The whole area was cleaned daily and seemed to be kept that way.
The staff on the front desk were all friendly and happy for me to extend my stay one night at a time.
I'd just like to point out that the bottle shop there is the cheapest I've ever bought from!!
There are 2 swimming pools on site, one with a pool bar that is very nicely set out, and the food from here is very good.
Overall, a very successful stay, and pretty good bang for your buck
