“Great For Stag do's”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2006

Was pretty worried about this place by other review but I had not much too worry about in the end. Us 10 guys stayed in 3 rooms (2 3 beds and a 4 beds) all with showers that was hot all day. The rooms seem to be clean enough good sleep. Even though you are on top of a 24hr bar we didn't hear it. There are drug dealers outside on the street but they're not any problem.
As you are on the Red Light District of town it does seem to get a little scary after dark and for this it'll probably be better to not to go back by yourselves.
The bar was a great place to relax and watch a bit of football and the staff perfect. We stayed for 2 nights here and were getting back about 5am with no trouble of being locked out.

Would defiantly recommend it for quick stops or stag do's.

  • Disliked — Price was slightly higher due to you have book 3nghts even though we stayed for 2nghts

This place is absolute rock bottom, never hav i been to a place so unclean & only 2 showers & 2 very unclean toilets between about 40 lads is not gud. also if you do ever stay here DO NOT lift the ripped & staind sheets because the matresses are soiled beyond belife (disgusting)also not a safe place to leave any valuables, the room doesent lock & all the lockers have been broken into or had there doors ripped off. GOOD LUCK if you stay here you,ll need it!!...

1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2006

I have stayed in the Gloge twice and certainly not again. The first one was but we had a bed each and a shower to share between three, it was cheap considering so I decided to go again. The second time we went we had 12 people sharing 6 bunk beds in 2 rooms with 1 shower between us. When we went to our room after check in there were still 6 lads in all our beds so we had to wait to have them kicked out.
If you wernt one of the first up you were guarenteed a cold shower.
You had know privacy what so ever, there were no locks on doors and there one of the cleaners kept coming in our room since trying to sell us mushrooms. He also put a replica baretta to one of my friends head whom was only 16 at the time can you imagine that!! Pulled the trigger but didnt put a cap in it so it didnt sound.
The rooms were grotty small with one rickety cupboard in which was no use to anyone
The bar however was ok and was open pretty much 24hrs. It also showed most sport when it was on.

If you like the thought of walking in your digs and still feeling aprehensive and a little uneasy then the Globes for you. However if I were you Id dig a bit deeper in your pockets and stay elewhere for your own sake.

As long as your not overly picky, this place is alright.We stayed 2 nights in the dorm room and 3 nights in a triple. Nice people, relaxed atmosphere, and a pub that you can get a late night Guinness. Not bad...

This place is a dive. Rooms would not lock. No kitchen, no common room. All bathroom lights were broken, paint peeling off walls. Felt unsafe. Stay here only in desperation.

Stayed here as a group of 16 on a stag party. One of the only places that will accept a large group booking. Cheap and the rooms are very basic with bunk beds etc but it is a hostel after all. Shared facilities and the showers are good enough for the job. 10 min walk from the railway station and on a canal at the edge of the red light district (i.e. near enough but not so that you get the freaks hanging about outside), actually quite a pretty location! Sports bar downstairs open almost all the time, beer ok and food ok. In all did the job for minimum cash and rate it. Go here if you are on a party or a student traveller but not if you are a romantic couple.
