As students, we can't afford the regular prices of hotels. A budget hostel is the perfect solution. I booked in Globetrotters because I heard good things about it from fellow travelers, and it certainly rose to my expectations. We slept in a dorm with 8 people, it was clean and had a nice shower. The public rooms are cosy and... More

I chose Globetrotters because of the location and the beautiful pictures I had seen of the building. When I arrived, I was not disappointed in the look of the place. On closer inspection though, the pictures on the wall and the mirror were cracked, the wooden beds were pulling away from the bare wall (no plaster behind frame) allowing a... More

Stayed in the 10 bed dorm. Beds were comfy enough and clean. The bathroom was clean. Service was great, the staff are helpful and friendly, managed to book day tours for us for the next day even though we arrived at night. Tours leave just outside the hostel. Bus to airport is directly outside the hostel which is great, and... More

We stayed for three nights in a 8 Bed female dorm. The Hostel is located in the city center, near all necessary busses or trams. The room was nice, but quite noisy. Beds were ok, but some lamps over the beds were broken. When we arrived toilet and shower were not working properly, but they were fixed after reclamation. The... More

I can't speak much to their larger rooms.... But the room I booked was a private double. Reminded me of a hotel, not a hostel. Nice, clean bathrooms. I was with a friend and we didn't venture out to meet people, although everyone seemed nice. The staff was beyond friendly. Great, quiet place :)

The staff at Globetrotters were so friendly and willing to help, and the location is FANTASTIC (right in the city center). We stayed in a 10-bed mixed dorm, and the facilities were only decent. The room and bathroom were clean, but the beds were SO LOUD. I woke up several times throughout the night just from people turning in their... More

Hi Taylor Thank you for taking the time to offer an opinion of your stay at Globetrotters award winning hostel. I have stayed in many hostels across the world and I have always found the dorms to be the best fun places to be, I guess squeaky beds will always remain an irritation no matter where you stay in the...

I stayed here at the beginning of my 5 week trip (3 nights) and at the end (one night). Both times were an awesome experience. The accommodations were awesome, clean, comfortable, and esthetically pleasing, as I stayed in an all girls room in the top portion of the hostel. There were skylights in that room which made it nicer! The... More

Stayed in private room in hostel: Great service: I was greeted and shown where breakfast was served and how to get to my room right away. Friendly staff, security was top priority. Room was spacious and location was key (right near the spire) 10-15 min walk from Temple Bar and Trinity college. Would definitely stay again!

I stayed in an 8 room dorm with my three other friends - it was my first time staying in a hostel room with strangers and, needless to say, I was nervous. Luckily, the Globetrotters Tourist Hostel made that the only thing for me to be nervous about. The rooms were clean, charmingly decorated, and comfortable. The staff was absolutely... More

I stayed at Globletrotters twice. The first time for almost a week and the second time for two nights. The first time I didn't have any problems, but the second time my pyjamas went missing and the staff was very unhelpful. In the morning I left in a hurry and left my pyjamas under the blanket. When I came back... More

Hi I am disapointed with the tone and tenner of your opinion piece in relation to your 'stay' at Globetrotters Award Winning Tourist Hostel, we run a very clean, modern and well staffed hostel in Dublin City Centre, your comments about staff 'telling' you to sleep naked and such like is total and complete nonsense, we have full CCTV and...
