Liked: We enjoyed our stay at Globetrotters and would definitely go there again. It is a nice place to just chill out by the pool or watch TV and it situated close enough to town so its easy to walk in and out, but isn't so close that its too noisy. There's also free car parking. We found the staff to be very helpful and friendly.

Disliked: We liked this hostel, but I suppose if people were looking for a party atmosphere, its not really the place. It has a very nice friendly, communal feel though.

The property's response is

We advise next time you are looking for accommodation you check into a childcare center where they can change your nappy and feed you.
Your parents must be really proud of raising a 22 year old baby, GROW UP Tine

Liked: Very close to seafront esplanade. Relatively cheap. Good place to base yourself. More suited to younger backpackers.There's a pool and decent TV area, plus kitchens and laundry facilities

Disliked: Booked double room with shared bathroom - room very very basic. Room had huge window that looked onto lounge area, a broken blind sort of covered it. No hooks to hang anything on. Although no noise rule after 11pm, you could hear everything from the lounge. Very noisy from walking up above in early hours of morning with a lot of overhead noise from people walking Towels extra surcharge. Shared bathroom was always quite messy. Staff had limited knowledge on excursions and the surrounding area.

Liked: easy to get to

Disliked: the air con had mould all over it and was pretty noisey, nearlly rattled the window out when the compressor kicked in, leaking fosets in the shower upstairs and the air con wouldnt work until 6pm at night leaving you swealtering if you wanted an afternoon nap (i like afternoon naps) you need them sometimes before a big night out.
