Staff very helpful. Great location. In need of deep clean and refurbishment! Bathroom was that bad I didn't shower!


Firstly we specifically chose this hostel for it's swimming pool but when we arrived it wasn't in use as it needed cleaning, secondary there were only about 2 showers and toilets, the rest out of order. When we asked the lady on the desk for others she said 'I think there are more upstairs' making no effort to help us. We finally found them 'outside' and the males flooded. We were also going to pay for wifi but she said it wouldn't reach us directly upstairs, all in all not great but convenient

very poor overall performance. facilities broken and almost not usable. you're lucky if you've got light in the bathroom. atmosphere is catastrophic. no other people to chat with or to hang around with. staff keeps telling stories about an insurance that won't pay etc. ...and this apparently for years now. i stayed there because i was too lazy to read the reviews from others on hostelworld and other platforms. stay away from this place!

Quite grotty. Showers need a good scrub and more than 1 tap (had to take off the hot faucet to be able to turn on the cold). Smells of smoke. Wouldn't recommend.


Staff were very helpful and the location was execellent. The room I satyed in was for 8 people but only had 6 beds so was not crowded, however 7 lockers were broken and only 1 could be locked. I was lucky to be able to secure my valuables. Wet floors is bathroom is not a pleasant site and replacing shower curtains with sliding door would improve this. Common lounge where TV is needs newer bench seats. Improving these items would bring anyones stay there to good overall if not excelllent status.

Just there for the night but very happy with my stay, staff were helpfully, had some friendly girls in my room. Loved the Pool Table, added nicely to the atmostphere... Good price for center of the city basicly right next to the train/bus station. And cleaning staff I saw in the morning were hard at work and doing a good job. I'd use them again if need be.

Thanks for staying with us and your review Penny, and look forwards to your next visit!


This was one of the worst I've ever stayed at. The cooking and socialising facilities are good enough, but the staff are unbelievably rude and the floor in the room was slightly damp/sticky.

Thanks William for staying with us and for your review, I'm sorry you didn't enjoy your stay and will look into the issues you brought up, I have gone back to find your booking and will be looking into the floor issue and since I don't know which one of the staff may have been rude I can only apologise, it is definitely not something we stand for here at the Globe. I glad at least you enjoyed the social facilities and hope you made some really cool friends during you time here!
