Liked: Got a room for the night for £12. It was worth that much. Didn't need any more so it did the job.

Liked: Loved the staff, they got everyone together for a few drinks. Also there was a hot tub, could walk to clubs, restaurants, shopping & all tourist attractions. Good communal vibe & good-enough facilities.

Disliked: Only negative was the mattress, could feel all the springs inside so bit uncomfortable but no big deal for a 3 night stay!

Liked: There are two guys who work the late shift - Yaddish and Streuhan - and they were awesome. It was less than one block from the main library in Glasgow.

Disliked: My bed was missing a rung so the mattress sagged. The place was packed and therefore we didn't have a lot of flexibility. One of the ladders for the beds was missing two screws and it swung away from the bed making it entirely unsafe to use so that cut that sleeping arrangement out of the mix for safety reasons. The kitchen was filthy and the personal hygiene habits of so many people makes a communal kitchen dicey at best - had to wash everything before I used it and there were no paper towels to use (hand towels spread germs and disease so I won't use them). Most of the staff (except those noted) don't interact with clients and they are not friendly. The place is decayed and falling apart. There were two broken tiles in the bathroom downstairs and instead of replacing them they were just getting more and more broken. The owner does as little maintenance as possible in this place. There are cigarette butts all over the front stoop which makes it look more sloppy. Most of the buildings around it are completely empty. For the price breakfast items should be served but aren't.

Liked: Cheap

Disliked: Unhelpful staff. Was left waiting at check in for 10mins while off duty staff drank. Whist checking out I had to wait 15mins while the staff had a smoke. Was not told the kitchen area was closed for a certain time a day so I was rebuffed by staff when I tried to get food from the fridge, before a tour. Not enough showers to go around or power sockets In the rooms. Good place to lay your head but don't expect a warm welcome or advice on what to do. I will NEVER stay here again.

Liked: The atmosphere was great! People were easy to talk to and respectful. The neighbourhood was very quiet and safe. Also one really good thing is that the airport bus is located really close like a corner away.

Disliked: There is no adequate place to put your luggage in the room such as under the bed.
