      • Group of friends
        7.0

        the overall atmosphere and the lounge room are to be mentioned as positive aspects of the hostel

        the location quite far outside the inner city of Glasgow has to be taken into consideration since public transport early in the mornings can be a problem (especially when getting to the airport)

      • Single
        5.8

        It was easy to get to on public transport. It was cheap. There was no one else in my four-bed dorm! I could access the internet in the dining room.

        The room and bathroom both needed a good scrub out. The window in the bedroom leaked badly in the rain. The door to the room could not be locked and there was nowhere to store valuables. There were no spare blankets.

      • Family with children

        Location, free parking

        There was a 3% fee when paying with credit card. This should have been mentioned on Booked.net. No any tables or stools in a 6 bed room.

        it was a perfect, clean and comfortable place for students

        it was far from the university

        The Staff were welcoming, friendly and very helpful. The Hostel was clean, comfortable and well kept. It had a lovely T.V. Lounge which had a very homely feel to it. There was a convenient Train service just 5 minutes walk across the main road and several bus links to other parts of Glasgow. There is plenty of local shops nearby including a Morrisons, Poundstrechers and Fast-food outlets and, also banks with atm machines.

        The only negative I can think of is that the bunk beds were rather creaky.

        Location from city centre

        Rooms were smelly, there was no cleanliness in room or toilets

        One of the best place I have ever stayed that economical and real clean. Staff is really helpful, friendly and caring specially that hungrian girl at reception renalta. Her hospitality is remarkable.

        Believe me nothing at all for what I should complain about.its a best place near by west end clubs and really ideal in all respect.

        A very pleasantly done up Glasgow town house within 60 seconds walk from the Glasgow metro station Anniesland (itself 10mins from the city centre). The rooms were clean and the area is peaceful and relaxing whilst being well connected with the city. The Weatherspoons bar next door is a useful source of cheap food and drink for the student traveller!

        very clean hostel, and kindly staff

        roommates made some noise all night

      • Couple

        Affordable breakfast was easily arranged. Hostel was cool old house with nice facilities (huge tv, free wi-fi, refigerator, etc.). Nice, modern, clean bathrooms. Awesome staff.

        Pretty far away, though easily accessible by bus.

      • Couple
        5.0

        Very disorganized staff. They could not work the credit card reader and I had to go to a cash machine to get $ to pay. Noisy hostel, lots of banging about and music playing late at night.

      • Single
        7.4

        Really nice lounge, comfortable bed

        Kitchen facilities not great - no glasses or dishes to speak of and it's buried in the basement.

      • Single
        7.4

        Warm neat place to stay. Serves its purpose.

        I did not like the hidden hotel transfer charge. On Booked.net the price of the service is not advertised. Not in the most accessable of locations. Difficult to find if you are new to the city.

        This hostel was steps from the Anniesland train station and super close to the buses that will take you into town. I had an early flight to the airport and couldn't bring myself to pay almost $200 to stay at the Holiday Inn; the bed was 14 pounds and the taxi was 12 pounds so all in all I saved money. Water pressure in the shower was good.

        The internet was no good. All of the communal areas smelled like stale cigarette smoke. I was not exactly greeted with a warm hello; there was one knowledgeable and kind young guy who worked there; the others should work on their "people skills".

      • Single

        The hostel was well maintained, warm and clean! The kitchen was well stocked.

        The four-bed dorm was a bit cramped and mattresses a bit thin.
