Nice hostel, a bit away from the city centre but with good facilities and close to the university. Anyway we walked everywhere and it never took us more than 30 min to get somewhere. We had a twin private with private bathroom and the best view over the whole city. Absolutely stunning! Storing of our luggage was possible for free, but they didn't check our IDs or anything when we picked them up.
Internet should be in more areas of the hostel. You have to seat at the lounge to use and you have to pay for it. Should be free. At the lounge are not enough sockets for everyone that are using the internet and want to charge a device. Is a little bit far from the city center. The hostel is very clean, nice beds, and a big lock near the bed.
It is a good place to stay with your family, or if u just wanna relax. I couldn't see a "Hostel atmosphere" there, it looks like a Hotel. But is a good place, pretty near some good bars and clubs( just 5 min walking). I loved my days there.
The staff there were super nice and they helped me out with anything I needed! The hostel was also really unique and in a pretty neighborhood. It's definitely walking distance from the bus or train station if u dont have really heavy luggage!
Was surprised by the place,it was really nice and welcoming
Smashing one night stay in a 4 bed dorm. Oozes class, character and style. Top marks for cleanliness.
I loved my time at this hostel. It's clean and located in a nice quiet and green area of the west end of Glasgow and also close walking to the centre of city. I would cone again to stay here. Hostel is nice and clean too
Average hostel. Wifi is pay by the hour, rooms are extremely old and falling apart. Absolutely zero atmosphere. Very average for the amount you pay, except for the amazing kitchen.
Lovely place to stay, rooms a good size for what you pay, and the staff are just plain brilliant! They're willing to help with any problems and are very approachable. I'd definitely recommend the place to anyone!

Can't believe how good value for money this place was! Really nice hostel with great facilities, staff were really friendly and helpful and only a 10-15 minute walk from town. Would definitely recommend it and would definitely stay again!

Great location right at a wonderful park, unfortunately breakfast only served till 9am, bedrooms smell bad (room 315), the whole thing is too commercially run. The living room has a very nice window that compensates for the otherwise not so great facilities. It's cheap, it works somehow.
The facilities are brilliant, very clean not to cramped and loads of room.The staff were very pleasant and willing to help.However it's not very backpackerish, as a single traveller it was so hard to strike up a conversation, people mostly stuck to themselves although this is no fault of the hostel itself, but it feels more like a hotel than a backpackers..I'd called it a "poshtel", it's in a very nice part of town and only a 5-10 Min walk to shops and pubs, but I still found it very expensive
Very friendly staff and atmosphere. The hostel is situated on top of Kelvingrove Park, which implies a wonderful view over Glasgow. Excellent vegetarian English breakfast. Hostel and surroundings seem to be very safe. Lots of information available on tours around Glasgow and the highlands. Only negative point is that you need to pay for the internet - but this also means that you don't get totally absorbed by your electronics and just use the internet ocasionally. Would highly recommend it!!!
First of all, to get to this hostel you need to climb hundreds of stairs through the street. Be prepared to drag your luggage all the way up. When you finally arrive exhausted you will discover that you need to pay separately to the wifi connection. Each hour of wifi will cost you more 1 pound and this internet can only be used at the lounge, no internet in the bedrooms. As there is no elevator, be prepared for more staircases each time you want to use the internet.
Lovely hostel, very clean and excellent facilities. However it is a very quiet hostel so may not be what everyone is looking for. You have to pay for the internet/wifi and it is only available in the lounge and kitchen areas. Breakfast is available but again you have to pay, I never did but from memory the cost ranged from £2-£6. The hostel is in a nice quiet area in the West end, and an easy subway ride to the city centre. I would stay here again.
This hostel was very clean and had nice character. The room was spacious and the bed was comfortable.
Everything charged, from breakfast to Wi-Fi. Staff helpful. Location a bit not so good and It's actually on a hill, needa climb.
