No hot water in the shower at all


The hotel smelled terrible and pieces of the ceiling were missing.


we arrived early and luggage storage was provided, the receptionist was very nice. discounts(15%) at the pub next door are a nice touch. bathrooms are en suite! there is no kitchen or common room (but we knew that before booking, so no minus points), but on every room there's a kettle with mugs and tea, coffee, hot chocolate, biscuits etc. provided, which was great. also towels and toiletries are provided freshly every day and the beds are made, like in a hotel! plus, there's a tv in every room!


I couldn't believe the price considering that it's right in the center of town, but it's a hotel converted into a hostel. Good: tea, coffee, cookies, towels, soap, and shampoo in the room; bad: no lounge. Bathroom inside room - convenient but door is loud and will wake people, no hooks to hang stuff. Wifi is mostly solid but slow at times and occasionally cuts out. Does attract a few shady people, but nothing too bad. Great value overall.


Very nice hotel, very good staff and very central. Really central in Glasgow, lots of shops in the neighbourhood, lots of restaurants closeby. Sometimes a bit noisy because of this. Also the smell of the kebab downstairs is very noteable. Hotel could use some small adjustments and some paint, but other than that, great value for money. Had some good times there

The dorms are really small and not well equiped at all. They are no lockers and not much place to put your stuff. At least you can leave your valuables at the reception. The beds are really uncomfortable. It Is what you pay for but next time I'm in Glasgow, I'll pay a little bit more to stay elsewhere. The staff however Is really helpfull and will do what they can to acomodate you.


Very convenient location from train station, only about 2 minutes walk. Easy to go to all the attractions. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room is basic, but it's very clean. Good value for money. Tea and coffee in the room, which is quite nice.

This is more like a motel/dingy hotel with dorm rooms. It's cheap and near the station, otherwise there's no redeeming qualities: the bathroom window wouldn't close, the shower was gross and no water pressure. You have a kettle with packets of tea, biscuits and instant coffee, towels, a mini soap and shampoo pack- it's ok if you're there for 1-3 nights.


It wasn't the best hostel, nor the worst. It was an interesting mix halfway between a hotel and a hostel. Not really any common space so it was harder to socialize but the rooms were pretty alright - aside from the fact that our window in the bathroom would not close. It was pretty good for the price I suppose.


Good value for money and excellent location - close to the main rail station in Glasgow. Complimentary tea, coffee and cakes. Ideal for a short stay in the city.


Old, dirty, unsafe, wifi doesn't work.


The location is good,easy to find and everything you need is just close by. Value for money but the room is too small for 6 people.


Easy to walk to location from the train stations and central town area. The staff was super friendly and very helpful. It is a bit if an older place, but was good value for the money. Plus there were tea, coffee and cookies in our room. Yummy!

For how cheap it is it's about as good as you can get. Did the job as a place to crash at night. There's a kettle with tea, instant coffee, and biscuits in the room which is a very nice touch. The staff wasn't very friendly but it was't that big a deal. If you're expecting more than the most basic hostel accommodations you're probably going to have to pay a little more but for the price I would stay here again.


It doesn't feel like a hostel. It is more like just a place to sleep.


From the moment i arrived the staff were great The hostel is in a brilliant position easy to find. The rooms are bright and the beds comfy .Couldnt wish for more.well done st Enoch.

The WiFi wasn't working and the bathroom in our room was leaning which was unpleasant. Our bed sheet wasn't very clean either


St Enoch Hotel is the worst hotel what i've ever been. The receptionists are unpolite, the room was dirty, we couldnt eat breakfast in the hotel. I dont recommend nobody.

Good location. Poor facilities


The room I stayed in was very small for so many beds (6 room female dorm) the washroom looked dirty, but I think it was just from age. It was great that towels and soap were provided. Overall decent place to spend a night.
