Exellent location, great value/price, good set up ( hot showers, nice kitchen, comfy bed) staff is very helpfull and pleasant. Also there is alot of respect for your belongings from the folks that stay there longterm which kinda watch out over the place. Many thanks to the crew of GlobeBackpackers, I will be back !

This hostel is located a bit outside of the city center: about 10 minutes from the high street. It is the only budget option I found, with a dorm bed at £18 per night. Overall the hostel is nice and convenient. Bed linen and duvet are provided. The kitchen is well equipped and free coffee and tea are available for... More

Stayed at this hostel for one week as a first stop off point whilst I was relocating to the UK. The hostel is well situated between the high street and quay. Accomodation is very decent for the price, which includes free and fast wifi. However the hostel has a serious lack of respect and care for customers. One of the... More

The location for this place is great - just at the bottom of the main street into the town centre, near the quay. We stay here regularly (once to twice a year), as it is also close to friends, good value, and easy to get to. The accommodation is generally clean, and the facilities well maintained. They have the best... More

A well located hostel, a modest walk from the bus station. Rooms were clean and tidy. Staff friendly and attentive to guests. While a bit tired the place was well maintained. One of my personal points was the kitchen. It was well organized and well kept. Thanks it was a good couple of nights. I will use them again.

We spent 3days at GBHostel (2 in a private room, 1 in mixed dorm). Both accommodations are nice, clean and quiet (private room particularly well furnished). Shared toilets, showers and kitchen are clean and the big living room is the perfect place to rest, have a chat, work. The hostel is located in the city center and it's easy to... More

I have stayed here 12 times this year while on business, and have found it excellent on all occasions. I am a tour guide so stay at 6 hostels every fortnight, and this is the best. The staff are friendly and very helpful, and the hostel always spotlessly clean. The facilities are excellent, with wifi throughout the building. I have... More

Only stayed 1 night in a private room, so can't comment on the dorms etc., but the room was clean, nice and large. Showers were large enough to get changed in and clean and warm. Free WiFi. Staff very friendly. Great location close to town.

We stayed at Globe for a wedding last weekend (August) and can't really fault the service we received. We chose Globe because of the reasonable price, it meant we could stay two nights for cheaper than one night at the travel lodge on m5! We had a HUGE room, with a double and two bunk beds. We were nice and... More

I liked the showers upstairs = clean :-) I didn't like the toilets downstairs = smelly :-( I like the staff = friendly :-) I didn't like the drunk man (train painter?) playing with knife in kitchen = scared :-( Be careful
