Good security, need a 4 digit passcode to get in the door and lockers available. However, rooms are EXTREMELY crowded so you can barely get to your beds or lockers. It would be beneficial to remove at least one bunk bed from each room. Good location to Haymarket train station but about a mile walk to the city center, any hiking, the castle, etc. Showers were good but I also recommend adding a curtain in them so towels and clothes don't get wet.

Had a great time at Belford. It's a converted cathedral so it's very beautiful on the outside and eccentric on the inside. I wish I could have stayed longer. The showers were nice and hot and the lockers were free. I didn't spend much time here so I can't say much about the common areas. It's a little far from city center, but it's a really nice walk into the city and there's a lovely cafe right around the corner!

The hostel is in an old church, what makes it very interesting, the staff is kind and helpful, the beds are confortable and with lockers inside the bedroom (4 beds). Wi-fi is good but only works in the common area, the bathrooms are good, with hot showers but far from the bedrooms. They have a breakfast for 1P with 2 breads, jams and butter, orange juice and coffe or tea, it worth! The location is not amazing but it's ok, safe and about 20min walking to the city center.

Big kitchen and toilet/shower facilities. The bar and common room area were large and its very easy to meet others. Big lockers in the rooms and the beds were comfy as well. Not insanely far to walk into town at all, a pretty walk in really. The staff were helpful and nice as well.

The staff at this hostel was wonderful! That's the only positive thing about this place. If you like cold rooms, dirty smelling carpets, and listening to your German neighbors getting their kicks on all night, this is the place for you...

Booked here last min as it was cheap. Room was tiny 8 bed dorm, with only a skylight thing as a window into roof space of old church making it extremely loud. You can hear every other room & the conversations going on :( Could really do with few more toilets that got cleaned more often. However on a good note great female only shower room, big kitchen & the staff were super lovely. Ok for a couple of nights however you could prob find hostel closer to town for similar price if you organised.

It's about a 15 minute walk to city centre, worth the price. The rooms are incredibly tiny and my locker was in the hallway which was kindof strange but it's big enough to fit your whole backpack in. The showers and toilets were always clean and the staff was great! If you're flying into Glasgow take the 500 bus to the 900 for £13. U

The location is ok, 20 minutes walking to the city centre. The size of the rooms is not that good, but is also ok. The beds are comfortable and the lockers are big. The common area and the cooking facilities are so nice, very big and comfortable. The showers are a little far from the rooms, but they are very nice, clean and with abundant hot water. The staff was very friendly and honest, I couldn't get my 10 pounds of the key guarantee and they refund it for me to my account.

it is a nice place, but you can't get fresh air into the rooms and the showers are two stories down...

Quirky atmosphere and large common space. Rooms are nice, but showers are in the basement. It's not a big deal but slightly annoying. It's located just outside the center of town but within walking distance of most things. The area is quiet and pretty and right near the river walk.
