Liked: The location of the Globe is superb. On top of this, the sports bar is a great aspect to the hostel as it serves as a great meeting place for a night out and also shows a good array of football games. The food is also of a very good standard

Disliked: Not a lot to dislike. It is a hostel in the middle of Amsterdam and is great value for money

Liked: Perfect location, couldn't be more central really. Clean bathrooms, good showers, clean rooms. Friendly staff, very cheap for Amsterdam £10 pppnight on sunday!

Disliked: No kitchen/ cooking facilities which is a bit rubbish really as Amsterdam is expensive so it would be better to cook your own food. Also there is no common room. But there is the bar downstairs where you can chill out without being forced to buy anything so ts alright :)

Liked: Not for staying even for a short time. İt is only Good for homeless people. Unprofessional administration, dirty rooms and lack of space. After we check in we just hang out and when we back we saw someone in our room. The staff told that he is Looking for his beleongings and he trust him but god knows whether he looked for valuable things or not?

Liked: Hostel Globe is the perfect location if you want to stay in the heart of the party in Amsterdam. Staff cleaned rooms and bathrooms everyday it was decently clean. Mostly the staff was generally helpful and the bartender/bouncer was the most friendly.

Disliked: We read that the staff was unfriendly but didn't experience this until our last night when the guy at the reception was really rude to my brother for no reason. We'd already been there 3 days and all of a sudden he snaps our heads off for some very minor inconvenience on his party. If you want a chill place to stay where you can go back to the hostel to lounge, the Globe is NOT the place. The bar is divey, and open to the public not just for people staying there but its usually quite dead, clearly not a popular bar in town. There are some booths and chairs but no couches or anything so we kind of felt like we had no place to go back to other than the dorm beds which are only good for sleeping. Also they allow food in the rooms but not in the bar. We are backpackers and like to have a cheap meal at the now and then but are we going to eat it hunched over in the dorm bunk beds? Really should have been allowed to bring a snack into the bar considering what we paid for a very basic room in a 20 person dorm. This contributes to the no nice place to chill problem (some hostels have lovely lounges to hang out and meet other travelers, this place really doesn't.) Finally, we were super pissed when two staff members came into the dorm at 9 in the morning and proceeded to take apart one of the bunks! They were literally using a hammer to bang apart the bars of this bunk bed. They woke up everyone in the dorm and then made a huge racket carrying it out. They couldn't do this during the afternoon when the room is empty??

Liked: Hostel The Globe was a decent hostel which was well maintained and quiet in the rooms, the staff were also friendly and helpful.

Disliked: I liked this hostel however the common area is the bar downstairs and you needed to be in the bar to gain a decent signal for the wifi. However these are very minor complaints.
