Very good breakfast, location is also ok if you don't mind climbing some streets, it's possible to reach the city center walking. Clean bathrooms and kitchen, but the room smelled not so good in the first day. I would recommend if you don't want to spend much money.
My bed (room 17) was extremely uncomfortable! So springy and old. There was no top sheet on my bed, so all I had was the comforter which may or may not have been cleaned. There were towels in the bathroom to wipe hands and a bathmat on my first day, but on day two and three, there were no towels. When I asked to do laundry (and pay the fee), the machine was broken. The young girl at the front desk (Eastern European I think) was rude to me twice. One when I asked to do laundry, and at breakfast.

Good situated hostel and the double bed room was ok for the price. We had a good sleep there. In my opinion the bathroom could be more cleaner (was in the floor)
The hostel was neat, quite close to the city centre and came with breakfast (which kept you going for hours). I enjoyed staying in a private room.
The beds were very clean, just the bathroom was quite smelly - unidentifiable smelly. Room a bit dark, breakfast average for Continental Breakfast.
The Charing Cross B&B is an affordable option in walking distance from the city center and the University of Glasgow, with excellent staff and reasonable rates. The rooms are cleaned regularly, but could really do with some sprucing up. Everything worked, and the bed and bedding were fine, but a lick of paint, new carpets and furniture would really help. The location and staff earn my recommendation, but just don't expect perfection. The breakfast is good, with both cooked and cold options.
