Für eine Jugendherberge und einen Preis von 318 Pfund (für ein 5 Bett-Zimmer) ist das eindeutig zu schlecht. Die Zimmer sind nicht sauber und zudem klamm. Ich kann die Jugendherberge leider nicht weiterempfehlen. Die Lage im Exmoor ist allerdings sehr schön.

Excellent location in the heart of Exmoor, in the picturesque village of Exford. The hostel is a converted classic older home, in the middle of the village and opposite the pub/hotel (which manage the facility so you check in at the pub :-) ). It has lots of space, with a good kitchen, eating area (which looks out onto the garden), lounge, and drying room for your wet stuff

Wir waren für 1 Nacht im YHA Exford. Mit dem Familien-Zimmer und dem Personal waren wir sehr zufrieden. Sehr gute Lage für Ausflüge im Exmoor-Nationalpark!

Das Hostel befindet sich in der Mitte des Exmoor-Nationalparks. Wir waren als Pärchen mit dem Auto unterwegs. Das Personal war sehr freundlich. Frühstück kostet extra. Das Zimmer war etwas klein, dafür gab es einen Gemeinschaftsraum und viele Grünflächen. Gleich um die Ecke gibt es eine Pub und sonst nicht viel im Ort. Parkplatz war kein Problem.

The building is a bit old but still comfortable and clean. The staff is GREAT: helpful, kind and with a very good knowledge of the Exmoor.
