Location was amazing right in the centre by the red light district and right beside a canal. Had a wonderful view from our room. There was no kitchen. Bathrooms were very nice and modern although the showers were cold and had almost no pressure. Staff was not very welcoming- seemed like we were bothering them But it was the cheapest place we could find and if you are not too fussy about showers or friendly staff the we recommend this hostel

I read the reviews warning of Bedbugs but took the chance. Unfortunately it seems like I got them and maybe another girl in my group as well. Not everyone in my group did though so you can always take the chance. Otherwise the rooms and location were good.


The sports bar downstairs is the only place you can hang out at the hostel except for your bed (which is only about half a meter from the person sleeping next to you). It is not very clean and it smells wired everywhere.. The location though is really great, it's in the middle of the red light district. It is the safest area in Amsterdam and it is totally cool to walk around there (also as a girl). You should only stay here if you just want a bed and nothing more.


Great location! I've stayed there twice now and will definitely stay again!

This was our 2nd stay at the globe once again no issues or complaints great for weekend away in Amsterdam


We were with a group of 7. 2 twin rooms and a triple and for some reason the triple room was the smallest. Bathroom was very good but our room had a damp smell to it. For what we got, it wasn't worth it. But we had no choice

Cleaning staff was a little rude and kicked us out of the room for no reason. Other than that, everything else in the hostel was enjoyable.
