Liked: It is close to the main train station, and it is in the heart of the red light district. It is a convienient walk.

Disliked: For 13 US dollars, I got a very good experience. The only complaint is ONE staff member, the day staff and early am staff are very friendly.

Liked: Location is ok, but there are hostels everywhere.

Disliked: Bed bugs, they said they would fix the problem, I woke up with a bug crawling on my mattress and bumps all over my hands, feet and a few on my stomach. I now have to wash all my clothes I brought, staff was very unhelpful with the whole situation. The place is dirty, smells disgusting, sketchy characters, the bar is awful. If you want to have bed bug bits for a week or two, and itch like crazy stay at this hostile. This is the first review I have every written for a hotel or hostel, I felt obligated, because it ruined my trip for me.

Liked: It is close to the main touristic points, but still in relatively quiet area.. room and facilities were clean, everything what was in offer were available, nice bar downstairs and tasty breakfast.

Disliked: The only minus can be that the breakfast is not included, but the value is still perfect for price like that. I can say that we were really satisfied customers ;)

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.

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?
