A great location if you want to be close to the university, obviously, but a bit of a walk from the centre of town. It's what you'd expect from staying in student housing, and I honestly can't complain about anything there. It's a good spot!

Fantastic value for money! Shame it's only open during the summer!

Nice that the rooms are singles. A little outdated and nothing really spectacular, but clean and sufficient for a few night stay.

This was the dirtiest Hostel in my life. The corridor is dark and long, the room was very dirty, the shower at the corridor was total simple and dirty (hairs after cleaning). You can switch the light only from outside, so you have to shower very often in the dark. The kitchen was clean, but the not completley , so you have to fill your things from another kitchen. on every wall you can find an unfriendly order how to use something or to see what isnt allowed to do. don't go there!

It's a dorm basically.. You can get your own room for the price of a shared room somewhere else, so that's good. Clean rooms and bathrooms.. I passed a couple people in the hallway, and that was it for meeting anyone there..

good value for money

Great value for a private room, but you naturally lose the hostel atmosphere somewhat. Easy to reach from Exhibition station and lots happening in the West End just around the corner. Highly recommended.

The place itself was basically OK but I could hear students partying and screaming outside during nights.

clean room, clean toilets and shower. Good value for money.

Located in west end and it needs 30 minutes walking from city center, but the buses are frequent. West end is a nice area with many fancy restaurants and cafes, so it's a good location. The place is quite clean and it's a good choice

+ Good location for going out in the west end + Single bedrooms with a sink - Interior and facilities in the bathrooms and kitchens look a little worn out and particularly not made for heavy duty in a hostel setting. Makes it quite hard to create an impression of cleanliness. - Probably a secure place to stay; however, it doesn't feel safe. Atmosphere is like being locked in a bunker housing a labyrinth of long, narrow, and warped corridors. Not to imagine what might happen in case of a fire.

overall it was a nice place to stay, would have been nice to be informed of the renovations going on thou, a drill outside your room early in the morning was not nice when trying to lye in. It was advertised as self catering, yet the kitchen were not very well equipped, no coffee or tea mugs or the basic of utensils & tea towels were missing too..... but other wise good. need FIRST number 2 or 3 bus to get close

Real good place to stay in Glasgow. Extremely clean, in the west part of city. Equal standard to a hotel but much cheaper.

The room and the common spaces were clean. The location was perfect for us, since it is located at a walking distance from Galsgow's main touristic spots. I'd reccomend it to travellers.
