    Everything was fantastic, bed was incredibly comfy and the hostel was round the corner from gig venue I was going to! Really close to centre of the city and very peaceful, no loudness or trouble getting to sleep. Would definitely stay here again.

    Staff were very helpful &'the Hostel was reasonably priced - didn't hang about much so I can't really call the atmosphere eating but the location was so good for getting out & seeing Glasgow it'd almost be a sin to hang about! Will definitely return

    Unconventional location by the arts school but I loved the area! Very charming. There is no atmosphere in this hostel but it's clean, and does the job. Great place to stay for some peace and quiet.

    Pros: I loved having my own room with a wardrobe and desk, and the wifi was reliable and fast. I was also able to leave my luggage in a storage room after checkout, and the full kitchen was very convenient! Cons: There's no common areas to hang out, and because checkout is rather early, I literally just sat on the sidewalk outside until my ride arrived. There is also a school a block away, so unless you like waking up to screaming children, wear ear plugs or shut your window!
