"They have a nice outside area to smoke right on the canal but the tables are put away far too early and there did not seem to be a set time they went out so that was disappointing"

26 March 2011 Nick would recommend this property

Liked: Great large smoking room with 2 pool tables, darts board, foozeball table, two big screens for sport and good speakers for music. Great cheap food, big heart portions as well, whether it's a burger or a half chicken they'll throw a half boiled egg with it, which was nice. Clean rooms, bathrooms particularly nice for the price. GREAT location in the middle of the red light district but kind of in a little corner so there's not swarms of people continuously outside.

Disliked: nothing

Liked: An excellent hostel in a perfect location. Really good sized rooms as well. We also stayed on a hostel boat which was a bit further out than we would have like to have been. This hostel has a great bar, and a smoking room for residents, a perfect place to chill out.

Liked: This property is perfect if you're looking for a cheap place to stay in Amsterdam and literally just want to use it for a place to lay your head at night. It's in a perfect location, right in the centre of the red light district and all staff are lovely and will do anything to help. The rooms themselves are basic, but very clean. The communal smoking room downstairs is a perfect place to meet likeminded travellers and the dutch breakfast which you can purchase for just 6 euros in the bar, including a tea or coffee, is amazing! Excellent value for money, in a perfect location. The cleanliness of the hostel is impeccable!

Disliked: The only problem with this hostel is that there isn't much to do in your room, as no entertainment is provided, but if you don't plan on spending much time in your room other than to sleep, then you will not find this a problem.

26 October 2010 Francois would recommend this property

Liked: The location is perfect, nice area with lot to do just 100m away... very big smoking room with pool tables and tv, drinks not too expensive, even coming early for the check in staff allowed us to enter the room as soon as it was clean. Helpfull staff, towels provided on request. Nice english breakfest, bar open untill late.

Disliked: No breakfest included, we stayed in a private for 3ppl for 3 nights and the room was not clean between those three days, room was very hot even with very cold weather and heat switched off, the window was really small, maybe the reason why the room was so hot. no TV in the room despite the big tvs at the bar.

Liked: Hostel was five minutes from train station and very centrally located. Although the hostel is extremely close to the red light district the location is not seedy at all. The toilet in the 6 bed private dorm we had felt quite modern and clean.

Disliked: Room was cramped although i think it's hard to find a room in amsterdam that isn't.

Callum Campbell

07 April 2010 Callum would recommend this property

Liked: Firstly, the location of The Globe Hostel is absolutely fantastic; it's about 25 m away from the red light district, so you can go out and not have to worry about a long journey back and rest without getting woken up by other people still out. Plus, it's only about a 10min walk from the Central train station. Staff were really friendly, everything was pretty clean and simple and I left feeling like I'd got a very good deal, since this place was a lot cheaper than other hostels in the area.

19 May 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: The location of the Hotel was great, everything was right on our doorstep. However it isn't 100% safe in Amsterdam, like every city, and there are many fly by night characters trying to rip you off. The Hotel was not as expected, but we settled in quickly, the bar offered good variety of food and drinks, and if you try the coffeeshops before bed then you will sleep through the noise of the other guests.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.
