Don't listen to the reviews on Tripadvisor, I read them and was prepared for a kip before I went but was pleasantly surprised! Blue Sky is basic but clean, great value. A group of 10 of us booked one of the dorm rooms out and had the best weekend! Atmosphere is very friendly - people sit around downstairs and have a few beers in the evening! I would definitely recommend Blue Sky!

Quite a long walk from the train station and the dorm we stayed in was cramped, overcrowded and had squeeky bunk beds. Staff were helpful. Not the best hostel but sufficed for one night
Although it is without a doubt a cheap and well located option for a very short stay, this hostel is not suited for longer ones. Nothing scandalous but a lot of little flaws that, added to each other, can create quite unpleasant conditions: very loud and aggressive music in the hall, walls so thin you can hear in detail every conversation taking place in the staircase, corridor or toilet, no free lockers, some shower issues...
Handy location for Sauchiehall street and easy walking distance to the city centre. It's nothing fancy but good value for money.
-They gave me a key that did not open the front door, which I was told was to stay open all night. I was therefore locked out and had to spend the night outside in the freezing cold (there are no other hostels nearby). I asked for a refund and the person behind the desk insulted me -The owner said only racist, sexist, and hateful remarks -Covered in dog poop and the dog bit me -They steal the £5 "deposit" because nobody will check you out -No proper toilets/showers -Unsafe beds
I had a great time at the hostel, BUT the owner's dog bit me (unprovoked), and he didn't ask if I was alright, or apologise. The owner also treated his staff very poorly, and yelled at them in front of us. It was not pleasant. That being said, the staff were great, facilitating drinking games and taking us out on the weekend.
There was just 2 showers in one of the buildings (they have 2) without hot water on the evening - so if you want a hot shower in this cold weather, you have to take in the morning :( Also, we tried to check out at 7.30 AM and there was nobody to do that (and it was not much, we just need to receive back the deposit for the keys). Very disappointing Hostel
This is one of my favorite hostels ever! The staff was very helpful and fun to meet. Loved the town and great sights to see! Would for sure stay here again. This place rages. -California kid
Our group of 5 stayed in a 10-bed dorm, consisting of 5 bunk beds which all seemed close to the point of collapse. Despite the winter weather our room had a tropical climate and smelt slightly like something had died in there. Appearances suggest the receptionist spent the majority of time out back on Skype. We took turns charging our phones using the 2 plug sockets in the entire dorm. One unknown cohabiter thought it appropriate to bring a lady friend back to our dorm and give us all a show.

Cool hostel ! good location near the city center and all the night life.
Brilliant staff! We were staying over Christmas and worried we'd be lonely, but the staff welcomed us into their little group straight away. They're all super lovely. Great place to party. You'll find someone in the common area to have a drink and a chat with. Super close to Sauchiehall & Bath St where you'll find heaps of clubs, bars and places to eat. There aren't a lot of power points in the room, but you can charge in the kitchen. If you don't like to party then maybe stay elsewhere!
Very near of the town centre 10min walk, clean and very friendly I loved my stayed there!! I recommend
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
