About Globe Backpackers Exeter

Globe Backpackers Exeter provides budget accommodation in an 18th century townhouse within easy walking distance of Exeter’s historic city centre.

That said, the large rooms and dormitories include shower and toilet facilities, free coffees and teas, free Wi-Fi throughout and lockers.  Iron and board, sewing materials, hairdryer, shoe polish, bedding and linen (excluding towels) are among the additional features.  Extra costs may be incurred for towel hire, laundry and luggage storage.

The TV, DVD and Video Room and the dining room are always available.

The well equipped kitchen at Globe Backpackers Exeter has everything needed for meal preparation, although there are restaurants nearby; the nearest being the Yummy on South Street and a 3 minute walk away.

Dartmoor National Park and the Eden Project are perfect for day excursions. Exeter, itself, has much to interest the visitor and the railway station is only a few minutes’ walk from this accommodation.

Positive Reviews

Approachable and helpful staff.

Very helpful and keen to chat, staff are eager to ensure that you have the relevant knowledge to find your way around the city and the surrounding region. Psst! They’ll even help you park the car for minimal cost.

Roomy rooms.

The kitchen is vast, modern and well equipped with lots of space for food storage and plenty of crockery and cutlery. Rooms and dormitories too are on the large side and certainly not cramped. The showers are brilliant with everything kept very clean.

Social spaces.

There’s a comfortable social lounge with TV and the free Wi-Fi facility is in all areas of the building.

Negative Reviews

Noise problem.

Not as bad as in many places but light sleepers should bring ear plugs.

Limited kitchen storage.

There’s not a lot of space for storing things and the busier they are, the worse the problem becomes.

Lack of room and dormitory storage space.

There’s nowhere to put clothes etc; so you tend to use whatever you arrived with and live out of that.
