Global Village has a really nice feel to it. Great travel memorabilia is part of the decor. Very clean and plenty of room and utensils etc for cooking. Very nice clean room and the bathrooms were also very clean. Nice dining area and lounge area.

This hostel has such a lovely feel to it. It's warm, well organised, has plenty of communal space & is clean. The kitchen is large enough for everyone & the internet is a decent speed. We would def stay here again
