We stayed at the Globetrotters in May of last year as a part of our honeymoon holiday! We arrived in Dublin by car, as we had been driving around Ireland for 5 days, to find that the Queen was in town and nearly everything was going into lock down. When we arrived the lovely ladies have us the low down on the Queen and what would be closed while she was in town. The Guinness factory was one of. The ladies checked us in very quickly then gave us directions to the tram and told us how to get the factory. (most of Dublin was fenced off during her visit - we went out to drop off some washing and buy some souveniers and we couldnt get back to the hostel for 4 hours!)
Our room was very a quaint old worldy feel room, nice space with a tv, double bed small table and chair. There was coffee and tea and a kettle also. The bathroom was small with a great shower.
Breakfast was a full cooked breakfast which you get up and they serve to you - very filling and delicous!
The hostel itself is very close to public transport, O'connell street and some lovely local restaurants and shops. One particular restaurant was recommended to us by the lovely ladies at the counter of the globetrotters was Le Bon Crubeen. It was amazing and I highly recommend trying it - especially the Pork Belly and seafood chowder!
All in all this is a great place to stay - very helpful in a great part of town!

This is more of a hotel than hostel. We had a private double room as a twin, adequate room with large bathroom. One of the beds was uncomfy as springs were broken but other was fine. Access to kitchen from hours of 2pm onwards which was a pain if you missed brealfast or wanted early lunch. Breakfast was hearty if you rise early enough. Walking distance to city centre and Temple Bar. Very safe area. Staff were very helpful. Old hotel and European adapters didn't work :( WiFi only accessible in kitchen or computer area. Value for money would def stay here again!!!!!

We stayed there for one night.
We had a private bedroom with shared bathroom. The room was lovely, calm and comfortable.
The shower is quite small but that's Ok.
Breakfast is good and big, perfect for starting a day!
Staff is really welcoming and helpful!
I will stay there again for sure!!

Stayed in Globetrotters for a night in November. At least in the dorm I stayed in there were no lockers to keep my valuables - A safety deposit box is available but they charge for it - and only a couple of the more than several side lights worked. When I asked if they had spare bulbs, I was told they had none and would look at it in the morning. Either no one had ever bothered to look at them in the past, and if they had they've chosen not to replace the bulbs. There is free Wi-Fi but it doesn't work well in the dorms, and there is a free breakfast but its a tad on the greasy side, and if anyone is making a noise on their way back to their room, you'll hear every word. Better hostels are available.

Given the great reviews I was looking forward to my stay at the Globetrotters Tourist Hostel. The breakfast was as advertised but it was the high point of my stay. I was disappointed that there were no in-room lockers or safes to keep one's valuables. The hostel did provide safety boxes to rent for 5 Euros which was a turnoff. Why should a guest have to rent a safe or locker? The basement room was pretty crowded with 8 people yet just one small bath and that was filthy and had standing water in the shower enclosure. With a bad shower door that didn't want to close. All in all, a very average hostel. The location was good but not the accommodations.

Room Tip: I would check to see if there are rooms on the main or upper floors. Also check for bedbugs as cleanliness isn't their strong suit.
