The dormitory does not have lockers which is essential if you are sharing room with people you don't know. Lockers are important. Does not matter how cheap the prices are, there should always be a locker for each bed. They Should put more attention to the bathroom, it was dirty and dump in the walls and shower. Again, does not matter how cheap the prices are, it should be clean. Good things: I had a clean towel every day with a soup and shampoo. The staff were friendly and helpful.

Location is awesome: city centre of Glasgow and 1 minute walk from St. Enoch station. The hostel itself looks pretty run-down on the inside especally halls, the luggage room (where everyone has access to) and, unfortunately, the bathroom. It had all I needed for one night and the shower was actually very nice though! Staff friendliness was alright, they were helpful when asked. There are no lockers in the rooms so that the roommates have access to everything you leave there. Fine on the whole.


Basically what you would expect from a hostel. Nothing wrong with it at all. Bathrooms were a little grimy. Can't beat the location.


The place is very close to the central station. The price is the best in town giving this place a great value. The wifi was super slow, only drawback.


Nice room. It was quite small, but enough room for two people comfortably. The toilet had some issues flushing. The kettle and biscuits were a nice touch.


Excellent value for money hotel. As a group of five, we stayed in a six bed dorm with own bathroom. As such good room, offering and cleanliness.


Decent place, close to everything in Glasgow and tesco is right across the street. No commons room or kitchen though, it being a hotel. So not good for meeting people. Staff were friendly and everything else was fine.


The receptionist was great. Very friendly. But the rooms dirty. They need to get rid of the carpets. The kitchen filthy and smelly. Not even a dining room. You must be really desperate to stay there. Have a look at Royal Mile Backpackers.....that is how a hostel should at least look. Never again at St Enoch. 2 out of 10.


Very good location; central to Glasgow and walking distance to train station; bus stops and tourist attractions. Supermarket right across road. Hostel is a converted hotel so no kitchen facilities; they do provide a kettle; tea, coffee and water in the room. Little lonely as there is no common area besides pub next door.


This is one of the worst hostels that I stayed in. First, during my time there, I received numerous inspect bites (I suspect from the bed). Second, the WiFi is terrible there. Third, I went to the reception to pay for another night, and the night staff promised that it will be taken care of; however, the next day, there was no record of this additional reservation for the daytime staff, so they removed my stuff without my knowledge and put it in the common room. I only found out in the evening.


The hostel is in the commercial center. Its easy to get everywhere from there but the area itself doesn't provide much apart from high street shopping. The hostel was generally pleasant but didn't seem very well preserved.


The bathroom was a bit too small but thankfully it is clean. Everything was okay except that the bunk bed looks a little "unsafe" for us as the supporting metal part between the two beds is bent (seems like it is going to fall anytime).


This hostel is the epitome of "you get what you pay for" The good: Cheap compared to other hostels in the area Centrally located within walking distance to Glasgow Central 15% off at the pub next door for all guests Free tea and coffee in the rooms The bad: This hostel was by far the dirtiest place I've ever stayed. Black mold on the walls in the shower room Was given ripped linnens No common areas No lockers Overall, if price is your only concern, go for it. If not, avoid.


The staff was OK but the room was not clean and the bathroom was horribel.


While location was great and staff were friendly, room itself wasn't great. Bunk beds were unstable and uncomfortable. Value for money though


it certianly did the job for to crash some where central after drinking. Wasnt the nicest place i ever stayed, could use stronger words but i guess was ok.


Efficient staff in an older building that has seen many years of use. Facilities were acceptable; beds were ok; bathroom a little small and antiquated. No lockers available in room; take your valuables with you. This is a decent place for a single backpacker with no great demands. A bare-bones type of hostel that does the job. Yes, I would stay here again.


Great location. Friendly, obliging staff, comfortable beds and good showers.


If you're looking for a spot to just put your stuff for the night go here. If you want a real hostel with a good vibe and something that doesn't look like Kosovo in the 90's I would avoid.
