“Alright”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2014

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

3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2014

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 great so overall I would stay here again for a lads trip to Amsterdam

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.

Room Tip: just dont go to this place

3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

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 only thing I can say that was rather frustrating was when we attempted to check in at 10am we were told to go away and come back at 1pm as our room wasn't ready. We grumbled for a while as it was a Thursday morning and it can't exactly have been a busy night for the hotel! The lady on reception then asked if we had cash of which we replied yes and miraculously our room was now available to check in to! Quite annoying as our room was available but the receptionist seemed to just enjoy being difficult!

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 good cheap room where your things are safe and you can look the people in their eye without vomiting.

Room Tip: Aivengo Hostel or B&B Vondelpark.

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 of Heineken is 2.50 euro and loads of snacks to choose from when you're high. There is plenty of other branded beer and spirits to choose from for an average price. There are pool tables, benches, tv's in the smoking area. Outside in the back of the hostel are benches and chairs by the canal which makes it perfect for a joint or some bong hits. The breakfast is surprisingly very good at only 6/7 euro. You can walk in and out of the hostel whenever you like as the reception is open 24/7. The location could not be perfect enough, everything around you is walking distance, and 10 minute walk tops from amsterdam central. It's not the Hilton but it'll do for a short stay.

Room Tip: Rooms are quite warm, but if you're going in winter this wont be a problem, it'll benefit yo...
