I appreciated the large sitting/ dining area - well lit and a good place to sit and read. did not use the kitchen this time but another maybe. very pleasant person in the breakfast room.

Good hostel in an excellent location with modern facilities. Atmosphere is slightly dented however by having rooms on a large number of levels that are tightly segregated based on gender.

I have stayed at this hostel many times for overnight trips and my past 3 visits (within a month) have been disappointing. It is very cheap so I don't expect much, but the staff I met recently were particularly unpleasant. One woman on nights is rude and really unhelpful, it seemed I knew more about my inquiry than she did. The lifts have been under long-term maintenance which is frustrating, but it does seem they are working on it. The showers are also very poor.

The lack of cutlery/crockery/cooking utensils in the kitchen made it incredibly difficult to cook a meal. We had to eat cereal out of paper cups, and the paper plates leaked. I realise this is to prevent people stealing things, but it didn't seem to be a problem in any of our other hostels, and real cutlery etc could easily be provided as long as it was returned We also didn't appreciate having to pay for the unsecure luggage storage or wifi All in all, we were glad to only be staying 2 nights

The hostel is located in a great location but that was the only positive about the experience. I arrived to a room with two bathrooms with both toilets did not work and the room smelled of urine and damp. Room was not clean and lockers did not seem secure to store my valuables. As it was a weekend I was unable to move rooms or receive a refund. Felt less like a hostel and more like a flop house or cheap housing in Glasgow. For a spot in city center of Glasgow was not acceptable

Is it really a hostel? It was more like a hotel. :) I believe it is an excellent place for cheap accommodation.

A nice hostel, with good facilities. Fun and vibrant atmosphere. Close to city centre and train stations, and not far from Glasgow Green. However, it felt too big, and a little difficult to meet other travelers. Very nice breakfast though!

Toilet is a bad design, shower and toilet are combined, it means it will be wet after shower, and next one if using toilet, will be wet ... Very poor

Overall, a good, big standard hostel. Good location, walking distance from main train station. And close to a mcdonalds. Have to leave deposit for towel which is annoying but otherwise would recommend.

Very basic. Doesn't have the "atmosphere" that many of the boutique hostels have. Dorms are huge and sterile. Kitchen has very limited supplies. The location is what this place really has going for it

Staff were very friendly and helpful. I would recommend taking earplugs if you aren't used to traffic. That's my only gripe.

In general it was a good experience to stay here. The location of the place is ideal, and the building is in good shape in general. However, the lift wasn't working and could be hard to get a deep night sleep if your neighbours decide that banging the walls and screaming at each other’s is somehow fun.

Pros - Amazing location and I love the kitchen/dining room set up! Great for keeping the backpackers costs down! Cons - The showers are awful! You can't adjust the height or pressure. I'm quite tall and still have to stand with my heel up on the edge... a short person would get waterboarded!... but at least they're hot. Not much atmosphere as it's such a big place. It feels more like a hotel with dormitory bedding. But it is great security, friendly staff and value for money!

Only stayed one evening and was severely jet lagged at the time but the staff was decidedly friendly, and room clean enough for the price. The luggage storage although 50p was an excellent alternative to the 5 pound storage at the train stations.
