Property Information:

Globe Trott Inns is located in multi-cultural east London 30 minutes away from the city centre.

We are a budget backpackers suitable for the laid back non fussy traveller.

A fun and social environment, we are perfect for solo travellers, happy couples and small groups. Many of our guests extend their stay with us or come back to visit again and again.

Don’t be fooled by other hostels with a similar price who then charge you for slow internet, high prices for towels, padlocks, printing, breakfast etc. We are the best valued hostel in London by far.

We are proud of our hostel and keeping the place clean and our facilities are cleaned three times a day.



Legends Lounge; its part lounge, part kitchen, part grotto and it’s the heart and soul of the hostel. It’s where many a couple have met and even more friendships began. It’s where we have our “Guest Appreciation Nights” and where you will find staff having fun, music, poker nights, movies, sports, it’s got everything you need to have a good time in the smallest possible space !


That’s right people; the hostel is located above east London’s infamous bar The Boleyn. Never heard of it? Look it up. Great staff, great prices and a little bit of anarchy in the air for good measure. Join the locals and get hammered during the day and enjoy the entertainment at night including live music, free pool on Tuesday night and quiz nights. The greatest match day bar in the world!

    My Partner and I stayed at Globe Trotts Inn for three nights, and we were really impressed. It was a really basic hostel with not much kitchen facilities, however the bathrooms and the 'social area'/'kitchen' were always really clean, an the staff were very helpful and friendly. The location of the hostel was very easy to find, a week before we arrived the staff gave us all the information we needed to arrive safely.
