Katharina Keck thinks…

"the atmosphere and location, this isn`t your typical annoying backpackers place but the people here are fun and it`s def a place where you can stay longer. It`s only 5 min walk to Sauchiehall street…"

Liked: Great location. 2 mins walk from city center and 5 mins walk to west end. Staff were very friendly, one of whom even took me for a walk around the city to show me the sights. Rooms were clean and beds comfortable. Incredibly cheap seeing you get free internet, tea, coffee, towels and breakfast. Nice atmosphere in lounge and kitchen facilities are very good. Provided everything I needed, could not have asked for more.

Disliked: n/a

Liked: Some of the staff were real characters, who took a real interest in socialising.

Disliked: No secure baggage storage. Not enough communal rooms - all in one. A bit casual in terms of service - like it was incidental that we were staying there.

Liked: This hostel has a great location very close to the city centre and clubs. The common area is newly renovated as well, and the staff are very friendly! Theres also a very nice hostel dog to play with. The price was also great, couldn't find anything cheaper!!

Disliked: Only downside was the internet not working, but there was a library less than a block away with free internet, so it wasn't really a problem.

Liked: ...free Internet, that is really nice !!!

Disliked: I booked a twin bed room, but get an 4 Bed room, with no space at all. The toilets need a little bit more attention, and new seats !!! If you take a shower, there is no space at all, i.e. to change your cloth. Because it is used by male and female it is quiet disturbing.

Liked: The location was good. The hostel was in a dilapidated state. There should be an option to cancel after seeing the room with the 10% deposit foregone. Otherwise, its pointless to book beforehand. because u never know what you will get on arrival and you lose out on the whole amount.

Disliked: The whole infrastructure and the setup was very sad.

Liked: The staff is quirky and cool, the kitchen is great, location to the nice west end was good, and the place is clean. Fun place to chill out at night.

Disliked: Internet wasn't very reliable, and when we asked one of the staff on recommendations for things to do he suggested a lot of the "must-dos" but hadn't actually done any of them himself so couldn't really tell us much about them.

Liked: Location is the only thing this place has going for it.

Disliked: Pretty much everything.. the staff were not very helpful with simple things like directions and how long it takes to get from the hostel to west end for example, they are clueless. The room heater didn't work and it was cold! we informed staff but nothing was done about it. The receptionist was very unpleasent and never smiled. The internet NEVER works! very annoying when your trying to plan your next step. The Breakfast was crap- not enough stock, only marmalade for toast. Very dissapointing.

Liked: The place was okay. Free breakfast was nice.

Disliked: The upstairs smelled like someone's decaying foot. My room smelled like funk and limburger cheese and I almost gagged the first day I arrived. I woke up with bites one night. I don't know if it's mosquitos or bedbugs. The lounge area is super tiny and not many places to sit down. The internet connection was non existent and about as reliable as the pull-out method.
