    Nice host, great shower, well equipped kitchen, free parking, good location. Overall a really nice, chill hostel that was excellent value for money. The only downside was that it was quite cold, I think in winter it would be pretty hard to bear. Would definitely stay in again.

    We enjoyed our stay at Globe House! The owner is a super nice guy who made us feel very at home. There’s even a kitty who will run past now and then (she’s quite skittish so let her come to you). The atmosphere could have been better, but you’re so close to town (a 10 minute walk) that it’s easy to get out and explore. Parking can be hard to find so consider coming earlier if you can to snag a spot. It can get loud on the weekends when people go out as it’s an older house.

    Staff were fantastic, extremely helpful and friendly. Location was great: very close to centre and easy walking distance. No locks on bedroom doors and no lockers but house is secure.

    The house in general needed a lot of attention and the double we stayed in was nothing like the picture on the website when we booked. The other residents didn’t speak much at all and was very quiet I personally felt like I was intruding on their space. The manager was a nice man and was very helpful at giving us ideas on where to go and what to see and the bed was very comfortable to sleep in

    Good location and very cheap, probably better for long stays as you really feel like you are in the owner's house, a bit awkward for a short stay, a bit messy with a lot of personal things laying around Owner is nice and helpful

    For $20 you cannot expect to much. Shower was hot, room was noisy for a while as a family with baby were nearby. Not a lot of heat but I was able to use the blankets on the other bed in my room as I was the only one there. Older house and it shows but fixing this up would be big bucks but you can't do that charging $20 a night.

    Overall staying at Globe House was an okay experience. We found it a little odd that the owners live in the same space as the guest but didn’t explain that when we arrived or ever. We felt like we were staying in their home not a hostel. Also, the long term guests took over the room we stayed in and it was very cramped and uncomfortable-we felt like we were in their space. The owners were super nice and some of the guests were friendly. It just felt like more like a house then a hostel.
