    My spouse & I stayed by you for four days. The staff was very pleasant & helpful. The location was great. If we ever come for another visit to Scotland & Glasgow, we will definitely want to stay by you. Pearl & Marty Herskovitz (Israel)

    Stayed here 3 nights during my Euro trip. Just needed a place to chill and to have some privacy. It offered all that. Single room with furnitures. Full kitchen to yourself with pots and plates (need own oil spice etc). Shared bathrooms are extremely clean. Only cons is you don't get to meet people. No one in building which can be scary to some extent. I would stay again if in Glasgow again since there are no good hostels anyways

    Nice clean en-suite dorm room and a change from staying with 3 others. Towels and linen we're provided. The location wasn't the best, as it was far from the central city area. Though, there were many restaurants and bars within a few minutes walk. Buses are readily available and cabs were an option. Overall, nice place to stay that is far cheaper than any of the hotels in the area. And you still get a room to yourself.

    You get a single room in a university campus. Very ideal if you want some peace and privacy and an environment to work, but it is not a place to meet people.
