Liked: Good location, easy walking distance into Glasgow even though wasn't really in the city centre. Really helpful staff.

Liked: Free internet.

Disliked: There is this impression of and old and unkempt property, had to try two showers before finding one that worked. Even the staff saying that the reception stays closed only from midnight to 8 am, there was nobody at 8:45 am, when i checked out, and i lost my key deposit (five pounds per person). Also, i don't know what cleaning product they use, but we kept coughing from the first moment we arrived there.

Liked: It was clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Quite close to the city centre and easily accessable by public transport. The resident dog!

Disliked: I stayed in a 4 bed dorm which was only accessable through the 12 bed dorm room. Bathrooms seemed to not be checked so often.

Liked: The atmosphere in general. Todd, the owner of this hostel, is an extremely interesting character. The rest of the staff is all amazingly helpful. My train left 7 hours after the check out time of the day, the staff let me use one of the locker (with lock) for free for that 7 hours, smiling all the time. If I ever come back to this hostel, it is for those amazing people.

Disliked: Actually it would be the location. But seemed like it only bothered me (others were totally satisfied with the location tho). Nothing else.

Liked: Staff are awesome - really friendly - the dog is huge and cute - needs a bath though.

Disliked: No TV or sofa - considering it rains a bit, somewhere to chill out a bit more would be good. Also that you have to take your key everywhere when you leave your room - the doors are really heavy and bang - I could feel them slamming downstairs. Also my bed was so squeaky!

Liked: great location, and value for money next time I am in Glasgow i will defiantly stay here. The showers were being redone when I was there so it was a bit hard to get a shower but I am sure that is all fixed up soon. Easy to get to the airport and easty place to chat to people.

Disliked: a bit messy in the kitchen, no curtain on the window in the room I was in so up bright and early, squeaky bed.

Liked: Good atmosphere and a really great social area downstairs.

Disliked: Beds are a little uncomfortable, especially the lower bunks with a double bed below. Ours sloped sideways and I nearly rolled out of bed on several occassions! And remember to have photo ID with you, they are really strict about this, even for locals.

Liked: Great friendly reception staff, decent location from city centre.

Disliked: Terrible interior - not sure if there's some kind of refurbishment going on, but wallpaper, furniture, flooring etc. is all over the place. Only one toilet per floor. Main security door leading to dorms is not always locked.

Liked: It was cheap and close to everything!

Disliked: It was slightly dirty, with only one good shower. I booked a 4 bedroom dorm that was actually located through the 12 bedroom dorm so it was practically like sharing with 16 people but it was cheap so you get what you paid for!
