The Globe is shabby, basic and unclean. Good kitchen, lounge and dining area. The bedrooms and bathrooms really need work - currently have holes in the walls, exposed pipework, damaged plaster, broken shower door, ill fitting bathroom lino flooring. Pay a bit more and stay in a bnb. If u really have to stay here out of necessity I would... More

this place has very helpful staff, hot showers, comfortable beds and a good kitchen, it's got everything you need on a hiking trip and best of all its only five minutes walk from the south west coast path.

I stayed here for quite a few months and it was a very friendly place, tidy and in a good spot near the sea. This place is close to all the amenities of Plymouth. It was suitable for my needs, there were a few minor parts of the house that need improving but no place is perfect.

Impossible to cook there. There were many other things that i could write here. I can't suggest this place for anybody - there is another hostel in Plymouth were... More

On arrival the room looked fine (although very basic for not much cheaper than a hotel). Then I got into the bed and found it so broken I was barely able to sleep at all. I woke up in pain on the opposite edge, having gone with gravity in the night. The lack of toilet paper and soap and extreme... More

The staff were very helpful and friendly. Nice kitchen and facilities to cook. Room... More

I stayed here from October to Christmas and then from January to March whilst studying in my final year at Plymouth University. Broadband is free, the place is warm. I always found the other guests friendly and enjoyed meeting the many different people that came through the door from all round the world and all walks of life. I was... More

On arrival, Mat the receptionist lead me to #5 which had a strange stinky... More

Awful place. Communal tv room always full of drunk men who ogled us every time we went near there and no chance of seeing what was on the television. Other people friendly enough but one man over friendly and smelling of beer, he was the cleaner? Rooms not that clean, sheets stained and bathroom showers cold or not working. No... More
