I wasn't expecting much from this hostel, but it was better than I expected, its location is minutes away from central station, dam square and the red light district, the staff were friendly and helpful, and it had a nice atmosphere. my bed and room was fine, no problem, I have nothing to complain about.

Great location in RLD and easy to get to. VERY RUDE STAFF, but then again, I've been to several hostels in AMS RLD and they were almost all pretty rude and arrogant! This place is secure, you have to keep their business card with you and wave it for them to buzz you in. Gets annoying. Smoking room was cool,... More

I stayed here with my brother after being moved last minute when our other hotel cancelled. I was a bit worried about this place because it had low ratings and looked a bit dingy but I was actually surprised at how okay it was. The beds are very comfortable for hostel standards and the bathrooms were all very clean for... More

Room was nice and clean. But no towels and discoverd that when got out of shower which wasn't great. Smoking room is good, all the staff were good and helpful except one very arrogant member of staff. Would stay again because it's cheap

Stayed at the Globe in June 2013 with 4 other lads from work. We had a large room that slept 5 people with basic beds and a basic bathroom. The price was relatively cheap and for the amount of time spent in the room the Globe was more than adequate. The rooms were clean, but basic, and the location is... More

Nice location. Hugely overpriced (10 man dorm for 1 night was 18 euros). The breakfast was disgusting. The staff were rude - barman wouldnt let me have a tap water, so had to buy a 250ml for 2.50. Also didnt clean rooms, came in shouting one morning which was deeply unpleasant. Never again.

I have stayed in this place on 2 occasions now, the main reason I returned was because of its location within Amsterdam with everything you need close by and because of the price. Both times I have been with a group of 'lads' and we've stayed in a private room for 4 people. Both have been clean and comfortable. The... More

Your bags are absolutely not safe when the cleaner cleans the rooms. This guy will steal stuff from you if you are not there. Bathroom broken (flush button broken). No internet for 4 days and counting when I left, of course no progress being made as I left. This place is scum. Try Aivengo Hostel or B&B Vondelpark for a... More

I stayed in this hostel for 2 nights in December 2012. The bed was not bad and the bathroom was clean. The best point is that it is near the red light district, just 5 minutes to walk. Moreover, the price was great, only 11€ per night at that time.

I've stayed in this place on two occasions and will do for a third time in December. The rooms and bathrooms are basic but clean. It's perfect for a group of lads just wanting a cheap stay and a good laugh. There is a smoking room open till at least 3 am, where joints and cigarettes are aloud. A bottle... More
