Liked: Great location.

Disliked: The beds were bad; the upper bed was too low so that you couldn't sit on the lower bed, and it was hard to climb up to the upper bed. I stayed in two different rooms and in the other one there were only small lockers where you couldn't put your big backpack in. Even though it was quite nice to stay in this hostel, since I met great people and the location was so excellent.

Liked: The location is worth noting as it is a short walk from Amsterdam Centraal train station and overlooks the canal.

Disliked: No WiFi in the rooms, no plug sockets near the beds and not enough for a room full of 10 people or more. Also, prices in the bar downstairs were excessive. 2.50 for a can of Fanta!

Liked: I loved this hostel! We stayed in a "16 person" dorm the first night and it was actually 8-bed dorms split into two rooms which was great. The second night was a private and the bathroom was nicer than some of the bathrooms I have had in my own home. There were lockers for your stuff in the dorms but you needed your own locks. The staff was super friendly and were willing to give tips and directions to everywhere. The security was very strict on letting people up into the rooms which made me feel extremely secure. The happy hour 2 beers for 5 euros was awesome and the smoking room could use some couches but overall served its purpose. Last but not least, the location is absolutely amazing. Right in the heart of red light, smoke shops, and next to the train station. Would 100% go back.

Liked: The rooms and beds were warm and clean. There was not too much noise and the staff will charge your phone for you behind the counter. The door upstairs is locked to prevent any guy off the street from walking up to the dorms.

Disliked: Wifi is free but only available in the bar and smoking area, not in any of the rooms. In my room, there were no lockable lockers so I had use a locker in the corridor on the floor below. When I wanted breakfast at about 9:15am, the kitchen as it was supposed to be and after waiting for 15 mins I gave up and went somewhere else.

Liked: it was everything so close to the hostel, central station, red light, chinatown, Damstraat everything was just 5 to 10min walk from the hostel. The room was lovely 3 beds all clean and confortable, bathroom seem new, hot water, showr gel, shampoo, mirror. The hostel had a smoking area and bar downstairs, really good. I enjoyed a lot my staying at the globe.

Disliked: room window was bit loose but thats not even enough to make me dislike the hostel.
