Adam Cuddy thinks…

"room was clean and tidy, as was the en suite, with soap and shower gel provided. room was basic, but that was all we needed. The bar downstairs was useful and did a good breakfast. a few weird locals…"

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.

Liked: Great Location.

Disliked: Staff weren't very friendly at all, in an 8 bed dorm there were only 6 lockers and they were of poor quality, the one I was using was all bent out of shape as if someone had tried to break into it. One of the 6 didn't even close properly. Very loud so take earplugs.

Liked: Good services. Helpful and flexible staff. 24h reception. Bar open until 3 where you can drink and smoke. Lovely back area by the canal. Really central hostel. Rooms were clean and simple. Good bathroom and shower. Great music most of the time at the bar.

Disliked: The food was okay, but nothing special. However, it is really quite cheap if you are staying at the hostel.

Liked: Das Zimmer (3er Zimmer mit Bad) war top, modern ausgestattet, neues Bad, hell mit Blick auf die hintere Gracht, Bettwäsche war da, nur keine Handtücher. Nachts war es sehr ruhig auf den Fluren. Alles in Allem ist das Hostel sehr empfehlenswert, auch wegen der guten zentralen Lage (wenn einen das Rotlicht-milieu drumherum nicht stört ;)

Disliked: es gab leider kein Frühstück inklusive, man konnte Frühstück bestellen, das war aber eher dürftig und hatte recht hohe Preise. es gab keinen Aufenthaltsraum oder Küche, wo man sein eigenes Essen unterbringen oder verzehren konnte. Die Atmosphäre unten in der Bar war eher für den Abend bestimmt und sehr dunkel.
