Nice Victorian building and good atmosphere inside. Helpful staff. Although located 5 km from the city center the hostel is close to the suburban railway station and bus stop. Generally, a good value for money. However, preference for cash payment (credit or debit cards are charged with additional 3%) is troubling and impractical in case of large group as our. Also, supply of hot water in bathrooms was limited (ran out on evening).

Lovely clean house with a very warm welcoming owner. Easy to get to - two train stops from Glasgow Central station. Rasy access to local eateries.

Quite a ways away from the West End/Downtown. Stains on the linen and lumpy beds. The bunk beds creak any time someone moves. There are no lockers or security, but there is a sink in the room which is nice. The door of our room didn't shut unless you pulled it, so if someone isn't paying attention, it could remain open. The staff was nice in person, but hostile over the phone and seemed unwilling to answer questions politely. I wouldn't stay in this hostel again.

Nice hostel with good location - big supermarket and takeaway foods nearby. The most friendly staff we've ever met in a hostel!

Fine for a one night stopover, wouldn't want to spend much more time here. The best thing about the location is that it's close to the station, so it's easy to escape into Glasgow. Our room was in a sort of dungeon near the communal kitchen. Toilets were on a different level, and there were not nearly enough of them. The beds were very squeeky. So just keep that in mind... if you get my drift.

Beds were incredibly noisy. Not enough plug in connections. Everything was fine. Good value overall.

Ok hostel. Great internet. Good parking. Easy to get to from a roadtrip. No atmosphere and dorm is average at best.

Happy people, there's a tv with cable, full bathroom, many comfy leather seats and places to plug phone.

A good place if your looking for somewhere quiet to rest. The facilities are good and it's kept clean. Not suited to solo travelers.
