    I had a wonderful stay at Cairncross House. The dorm was clean and had it’s own sink. Staff was knowledgeable and friendly.

    Really good place to stay however it’s not quiet as the noise really carries everywhere. The doors also slam when shut so it can wake you up throughout the night. I really enjoyed it though and would stay again

    Very pleasant, inexpensive and in a nice area. I enjoyed walking around, going to the museum and pubs in the neighbourhood and the very pleasant security guard called me a cab when I left at 4 am after 2 nights.

    Skye Backpackers is a great place to pass through. The Tea, coffee, and hot chicolate powder was a nice touch. Reasonable prices to grab some breakfast items! Good times!

    A little expensive compared to traditional hostels but you get your own room which is great!! It’s usually uni dorms, so if you’re visiting over summer and want a bit of space - definitely stay here!

    Very Good

    Cheap way to enjoy a single room so seems picky to criticise the fact that the bed was pretty uncomfortable and the showers not massively clean (and sometimes needed a bit of jiggery pokery to get a temperature that won't burn or freeze!). Choose it if budget is tight and you value privacy more than atmosphere or comfort. Glasgow is a fun city so you'll have fun whatever.

    Room very dark I had to keep light on all the time as I was opposite a high wall . Room very spartan no bedside light Kitchen floor was dirty with accumulated piles of dust etc in corners and windows filthy No washing up liquid available (even on request to staff) therefore dishes , pots and pans were not properly cleaned A serious health and safety issue.

    Noisy, inconsiderate guests slamming doors and making noise in communal areas most of the night. Smelly dirty shared bathrooms. Lack of any cleanliness in the bedrooms (dirty carpets, hair on clean towels and stains and hair on apparently clean bedding). AVOID!!!!!!
