Great hostel with awesome staff. The location for me was perfect; West-end not too far from the park and Art Gallery, and far enough walk from all the commotion on Sauchiehall Street, but within a 5 minute walk. The facilities were decent and the showers are private, which is nice considering some of the hostels out there. The staff connected well with the visitors which was great. Free Wifi & available computers which can be used for free is an added bonus. Small chilling area but comfortable.
Kind of dingy, but helpful staff. And a good break from the hostel I was in before, where the staff was downright surly.
The place was pretty nice- big open common area and everything was pretty clean. It's a bit of a walk from the city center but not bad, there are things to see nearby the hostel too. Maybe one thing to improve would be more hooks in the bathroom/showers for clothes and towels.
The location was pretty convenient; it's not far from the centre, or far from the park. And it's easy to find the hostel, even if it's your first time in Glasgow. There is also a shop just around the corner, which was nice. The kitchen and the common room are a bit small, but that didn't bother us since it was easier to get to know other travellers and just hang out. Also the staff was very helpful and nice. We really enoyed our time in this hostel in Glasgow.
Although very cheap, problem was that we didn't have any plug-ins in the room, so we have to use the ones in the hall and sometimes we asked staff to charge it at the reception (and they did it without question). Good location and very good value for money.
condition of restrooms are really bad, never felt like taking a shower, mobile reception is really bad. I had a two weeks stay there, after the first week, i asked them about changing the reservation of next week to different room, and they simply cancelled my reservation and gave me a new one without my concern which cost me 35 pounds with no one ready to take the blame. every1 blaming on other. I stayed in other hostel after leaving this one and found them really amazing as compared to this.
This is a decent place for the money. But it's not ideal for a worker in anyway if your up early. Kitchen area doesn't open till nine o'clock so you can't get a coffee and also when you check out there's nobody there to give you your room key deposit back. :s

The hostel is situated quite far from city centre. The bathroom facilites are not quite convenient. The pantry is too small.
Definitely one of the worst hostels ive ever stayed in... The buildings are really old and decrepit; the rooms cramped, stuffy and small; bad matress and the worlds worst pillow; the wifi doesn't work in the building across the street; the kitchens and bathrooms are gross and you feel like you might catch something. However there aren't many options for hostels in Glasgow, so it's worth it for exploring a great city. Good luck!
Really fun hostel, located close to they city and even closer to the cooler west end of Glasgow.
This place was a love/hate relationship. The staff was fantastic and very lively. The fact it was full of students made it feel like a dormitory. It was very much a party hostel though, great nightlife. The bathrooms steadily got better as time along. They were pretty dirty and with weak pressure at first but gradually got cleaner and higher pressure. The place across the road was in shambles though, a lot of work needs to happen to make this a better place. I'd recommend if you want cheap accom
very small common rooms, a little bit outside the city centre but all in all a good hostel
Sockets are not enough

Very nice hostel to meet people. Very crowded on the first days of september due to Erasmus people (as was my case) looking for accomodation, so it's good to meet other Erasmus and find a flat together.

Bad located far and away from the centre, the staff unfriendly, the atmosphere boring and plane. Just one toilet and shower for more than 30 persons .
Feels like a dorm that has been lived in for the past 800 years. No nice, comfortable spot to chill. No outlets in the rooms. Everything funky and run down, including the beds (mine wasn't flat). The location was ok. Wifi didn't work for me.
My first impression of this place was that it was dirty and it smelt. The staff were so friendly, that was the only thig the place has going for it. The toilet and showers were disgusting. Laying on the bed was laying on springs. It was so terrible I left and didn't stay. I don't recommend it to anyone it's a waste of money!!
Great location, friendly staff and good, party tolerant common area away from rooms where travellers can meet. Need more power plugs in the rooms. I was in a 10-bed dorm with 1 functioning outlet. The excuse that people use the plugs to power their laptops for Skyping is flawed. I needed to charge my camera and MP3 player and had to do it in a busy kitchen, waiting for hours, with everyone else waiting for the same reason. Not a big flaw but a couple of plug multipliers will go a long way
tried 4 showers and 3 were broken . one you couldn't regulate the heat and only one had a shower head you could fix. wouldn't stay here again for that reason
The hostel was okay for the night I stayed, I think some renovation work was going on, so things might have been little fuzzy but it was okay. The lady at the reception was kind enough to let us have a locker and put our things there even after we checked out, so that was really helpful.
