Nice place to stay for a night or so. Not much atmosphere as there is no common area. And no kitchen.


Just a cheap hotel but they're using some of the rooms as dorms. It's nothing special but the location next to central station is handy. Fine if you just need a bed in the centre. Also, they leave cereal, milk and juice outside the door in the morning which is nice.


The toilet had mold on it, and wouldn't flush, the beds were falling apart, and the overall atmosphere was not very pleasing. I did not feel comfortable enough to shower, although when tested, the shower took over 30 minutes to heat up. There were break-ins happening literally right outside of the hotel so the area was constantly roped off by the police. Would not go back again.


Nice for a short stay.


location in the party area so can be noisy. i stayed in a 12 bed mixed dorm, which got vey stuffy with lots of loud party goers coming in at all hours making a lot of noise. only one shower for the dorm room tho there are a few other showers if you can be bothered to find them! one night i was there a dunk young man threw up all over the bathroom and the staff would clean it so we could not use the bathroom for the next day!


Room is very clean and the service is like you are staying in a basic hotel. Location is also good. Just regard it as a place to sleep not suits to socialize.


The location is great - just next to the city center and train stations. But some parts of the surrounding are kind of run down areas. It is not very clean in the hotel, and the room I stayed is with limited space.Floor is tilted, thus so is the bed. Poor breakfeat, not enough at all. Anyhow, with that cost for a double room, what could one expect.


A true budget hotel, honestly if you can find anywhere else, then do so as St Enoch is quite simply the pits. Toilet wasn't cleaned, TV signal faded every time a bus went past outside, carpet was ripped, bedside table is a chair, window took great effort to lock, kebab place downstairs popular with all night party goers, the street life outside at night is loud and at times frightening. Pay the extra money to stay at a nicer hotel and enjoy Glasgow more.


breakfast is provided in front of room ( the door ) suddenly in the morning, surprise :) Is a hotel, actually the room is hotel room, but they put bunk bed for the dorm booking, so only one bathroom in room, and no space in room, no common area in hotel, no facility, but if just for sleeping, and breakfast provided, it is good enough


Breakfast was always incomplete. Sometimes the y had no milk for cereal or no bread for nutella. Bathroom of The room wasn't working. Good facilities good ambience!


Cheap and clean with a small breakfast package in the morning.


Washroom wasnt clean, but the room was okay. Had some nice roommates. The "hotel" part which was different from a hostel, was the tea/coffee facility and free cookies, plus the soap and shampoo plus towel on the bed. Apart from that, it's a hostel, with bunkbeds and everything :) Quite close to a drop off from the airlink. Close to a supermarket, which was very convenient.Just across the street. Good value for money,but they should really do something about the washrooms. Wallpaper?Really?


The cups and mugs in the room were cleaned in the bathroom sink at the same time as the toilet being cleaned.


Apart from the location there is nothing worth talking about. Again you get what u paid for!


Cheap hostel to stay at, you get what you pay for. Excellent location right in the shopping/food district of the city. 2 minutes from the train station, wouldn't recommend staying for longer than 2 days unfortunately it didn't have a common room or kitchen.


Definately a very very budget hotel/hostel, walls are crumbling and the whole place is vaguely smelly but great value for money, location is excellent, bed comfy, shower hot and effective, surprise brekkie left outside my door each day - satisfied! Set your expectations really really low and you'll be pleased.


The room was comfortable and well equiped, they provided coffee, tee and cookies. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and they left a paper bag with a take-away breakfast in front of the bedroom's door in the morning, which was a nice surprise. The location is very central and convenient, close to all the main railway and bus stations. The only minus is that it was quite noisy and I could here the traffic loudly, but fortunately I had a couple of ear plugs with me.


The beds were so close together, you could touch the person sleeping next to you. They were made of steel that are not stable. The bathroom had so much mold in it that I chose to not shower rather than risk getting whatever was in there. We couldn't wait to leave.

I didn't stay there 2 nights, booked wrong date, e-mail to hotel but they didn't help me to cancel that reserved and still charge me 2 nights cost :(


I haven't been to this place, simply because the hostel made a mistake about the price and ask me to upgrade my reservation to the correct price or to cancel it. They wrote £4 instead of £24 for a night on Internet. They didn't dare to make an effort to make the price cheaper as it was their mistake.
