Hostel The Globe Center Reviews

While a traveler may save a few dollars staying at the Hostel The Globe Center, it is simply not worth it. If the price seems too good to be true, it usually is. With so many other hostels in Amsterdam, Hostel the Globe Center is not recommended for anyone.

The Location

If there is one positive about this hostel, it is the location. The hostel is located right along one of the many canals in Amsterdam, and is centrally located with most of the city's attractions. Anyone arriving from Amsterdam Central Station will be able to walk to the hostel. When experiencing the busy nightlife, the Red Light District and several popular bars are less than five minutes on foot. The location is excellent.

Rooms and Bathrooms

To put it simply, the rooms are neglected. The hallways are poorly lit and feel like they've never been cleaned. With so many travelers in and out, it doesn't take much to dirty up a hostel. In one six-bed dorm, there is a interior window that opens up to an unusable elevator shaft. This open area is full of trash and birds are heard flying up and down at all hours of the night. This hostel does not include air conditioning and this can result in some very hot evenings during the summer time. Travelers should be prepared with small fans to try and sleep with some level of comfort. The dorms, hallways, and bathrooms all appear very dirty and gross. This hostel needs some attention and deep cleaning.

Common Spaces

The only common area in this hostel is the bar and restaurant on the ground floor. The bar also acts as a reception desk for guests. The hostel offers small discounts on common drinks like Heineken. There doesn't seem to be much foot traffic at the bar. Hostel the Globe is not the kind of hostel where a traveler should expect to meet other people. The bar is quiet even at 11 p.m. on a weekend night.


This hostel needs to be improved vitally. The building is older but that doesn't excuse the dirtiness throughout the dorms and hallways. If the hostel were properly cleaned on a daily basis, it could easily be rated as "Good" just because of the location. Unfortunately, the wonderful location is wasted with all the other flaws.
