The hostel was very clean and very nice. We staying in a 4 person private room with an ensuite and we loved that they provided us with towels. We only stayed one night and the lady that was on duty was incredibly rude and demanding. She was an older women and was not friendly or welcoming at all. Other than that we enjoyed our stay, it is about a 10 minute walk or so to the subway station and a 5-10 minute walk to The University of Glasgow which is gorgeous.

We enjoyed our stay. The place was very clean. The room was familiar and big, enormous window and high ceiling. We liked the fact that we had a kettle, tea and coffee. But as a negative point, we wanted to kook in the kitchen and they only allowed us to use the microwave, don't know why yet...

Nice hotel in a stylish Victorian house with good breakfast and also a small kitchen. Unfortunately, it was located next to one of the big streets in Glasgow, so it was alittle bit loud during the night.
Fantastic stay. My room (single, shared bathroom) was perfect for the price - very comfortable and clean. My room was just opposite the bathroom, and I never had to queue or wait at all. Would definitely stay here again. Thanks Charlie!
Friendly and helpful staff and nice location behind the trees on a main road. The bathroom was quite small and the room was a little humid (we arrived after some heavy rain though)
Overall it's a very good hostel for backpackers
Clean and cheap that's for sure but all the bedrooms are like prison cells, all really tiny with cheap furniture and no charm at all and all in that horrible basement without windows, Do not stay more than one night!
Great hospitality, Charlie was super helpful with any questions we had. Room was a little small but clean. Located right next to the botanic gardens and about a 7 minute bus ride from the bus terminal.
Charlie's a lovely host, very friendly, patient and helpful. Breakfast was lovely, freshly cooked by Charlie himself. The only problem I found was the size of the room, was a bit too small for 2 person plus 2 hand luggage. Otherwise the place was very clean and all the staff there were lovely. The location of this B&B is at the West end of the city, but it's very easy to get to, only costs 1.40 pounds for subway one way or 1.90 pounds for bus one way. gets to town in 10 mins.
