This Hotel is a real abomination. It's located just above a pub and a kebab restaurant open until 4am. because of that it smells food and burned oil in all the rooms. Can't sleep at night because of the bus station just under your windows and the drunk people who go to the restaurant. The rooms are really dirty. We had a chair full of dirty marks, the carpet has certainly never been cleaned (we bought some flip flap to not touch the ground), the towels were holed, the shower broken with mould.

We had an amazing time at St Enoch! We had booked an 8 bed dorm but got upgraded to our own room which had tea and coffee making facilities and a TV. Although the room was small and the top bunk a bit squeaky it was great to have your own space! The bathroom was clean and the rooms are serviced everyday. This is a hotel so there are no common areas or kitchen. The wifi worked well. The location was fantastic for exploring the city's sites or accessing the night life.

This was a disappointment from start to finish. I arrived early with the intention of storing my luggage for the day and was greeted with simply, "Check-in is not until 3." Following this I was unable to receive a single recommendation of what to do in the city as, "You know when you live in a city but don't really know much about it" was the given response. Blood on the towels, messy rooms, uncomfortable, noisy and unstable bunk beds. Not worth the money, only plus is location. Not recommended.

Situated in a great location near bus tour pick up locations, shopping, movie theatres, central station and the Clyde river. The rooms were a good value for the money. Mine had a private bathroom which was great. Not much atmosphere in the hostel but step outside and you have everything so that makes up for it.

Some little (!) maintenance won't hurt - for example showers, chairs in the kitchen, matresses

Great value for money in a very central location (close to city centre and central station). Facilities are a bit run down yet clean and functional. There are free towels and soap included and the staff is very friendly and relaxed.

Our shower took a while to heat up and had a pretty weak flow, but other than that, we had a great time! It is right in the city centre and very close to a lot of restaurants/bars/clubs and to the subway. The reception staff were very friendly and helped us call a taxi to the airport, saving us money and making it an easy trip over. Hootenanny's next door was very cheap with our discount and had helpful staff.

It is a good place to drop and go. The rooms are very basic and offer good comfort for a traveller looking for a central location for transportation and shopping. Cleaning the bathrooms should be made a priority to make sure the space stays fresh and welcoming.

Excellent location, just 5 minutes walk from central station and very close to lots of shops. Very helpful staff, and excellent value of money - free towels,iron,wifi and free tea and coffee. Beds were a little worn down as i could feel the springs from the mattress, there was also some mould in the bathroom but it's nothing major. They have a room in the basement that you can use to store your luggage, not the best security though. Also it is next to a kebab shop so be prepared for its smell.

The room was horrible! The bunk beds were instable was I was afraid to sleep in the upper bed. Furthermore, there were hairs from other persons in the line which is just disgusting! The matress was so uncomfortable; you felt every single spring. The bad was full of mold on the walls. In the shower cabin, were also hairs from someone else. Furthermore, you could not lock the door. We had to use a trash bin to keep it close. The floor was very uneven and the flooring detaches already. Just dirty!

Good cheap hotel, right in the city centre. Close to pretty much everything, or 10mins on underground. But it is cheap, toilets need upgraded, though they do work fine. Bed was a bit uncomfortable. But was greatly cheaper than anywhere else in Glasgow.

Good atmosphere but there is no secured luggage storage in lobby or room. WiFi signal was inconsistent but useable. The room itself was fairly clean but there were a few hairs on the proided towel and linens. The location gives it solid value it there is no common space so don't expect a standard hostel experience

Terrible staff, lady on desk during day is horrible. Made me feel like I was asking for an organ when I asked to print something. No common area to use, rooms tiny. Only good thing is the rooms have ensuite and you got a towel and soap everyday but could be cleaned more. Overall it was a place to rest my head but not to hang out at

It would be nice to have a common room and a kitchen The beds were REALLY rickety and I felt like the top bunk could have collapsed at any time The floors were bending in the room- old place Wish the bathroom was bigger

Cons: The building itself doesn't look as if it's been cleaned inside. Luggage room was a large odd open room that could use lockers. Hotel room itself was very small with close to no outlets. The room was also above the bar which played very loud music. Made it for a difficult time to sleep. The front desk had zero maps which wasn't helpful. Pros: The location was prime. Great access to shopping. The staff was friendly. I liked that there was a towel, soap, cookies, and tea in the room.

It's right next to some great shopping. You can tell it was an old Hotel converted to be a hostel. The wifi worked great and there was a tv in our room.

The bathroom wasn't clean at all. The atmossphere was cold, it had nothing cosy. The staff was fine, but compared to other gostels I have been they behaved a bit less friendly. I think the hostel is fibe when you travel wit a group, but for a single traveller it is quite boring since there is no kitchen and/or common room. Difficult to meet new people.

My second stay here, am originally from Glasgow and it's in a great location, basic, but has adequate facilities and staff are friendly and helpful. I will be back later in year.

This place wasn't very clean hairs in the shower, someone fake eyelash on the coffee table, dirty mugs, used sanitary products in the bin. Unsafe facilities to leave your bags. Was very unsatisfied with my stay and would not stay here again.
