Liked: The fact that I left at 0500, yet I could still have toast/tea/cereal.

Disliked: Certain parts of the guesthouse seemed unclean and there was a slight stale smell upon entering my room. Member of staff who served breakfast wasn't the chattiest of people and didn't seem to care very much.

Liked: Cheap and convenient. The people were very friendly and helpful.

Disliked: Thin walls, doors and windows meant that it was quite noisy. I had a room facing the street and i was woken every morning by idling vans and slamming doors.

Liked: great location for the GSA and underground stop is a short walk. nice period features in the dining room and bedrooms. New carpets and curtains.

Disliked: The room gets pretty warm as the window only opens a small amount as it was nearly all painted shut. One reception lady was very nice but the other was a bit grumpy.

Liked: Das Personal war äußerst zuvorkommend und hilfsbereit. Außerdem wurden wir jeden Tag mit neuen Handtühcern versorgt bzw. es wurde sich erkundigt, ob wir bspw unsere Bettwäsche ausgetauscht haben wollen etc. Zusätzlich nahm man sich für Informationen rund um Glasgow eine Menge Zeit. Das Frühstück war sehr gut und man konnte zwischen verschiedenen Möglichkeiten wählen. Das PreisLeistungVerhältnis war absolut in Ordnung im Vergleich zu anderen Unterkünften in anderen Städten in England bzw. Schottland (23 € p. P. pro Nacht in einem Doppelzimmer ohne Bad).

Disliked: Ich war vollkommen zufrieden, Zuvor hatte ich in verschiedenen Hostels genächtigt. Einer Person, die normalerweise Hotels o. ä. gewohnt ist, würde dieses Guest House eventuell nicht so gut gefallen wie mir. Jemand, der eine Alternative zu den teilweise doch recht teuren Hostels sucht, würde ich diese Unterkunft sehr empfehlen.

Liked: Cheap. Very good location, many things around, like shops, restaurants.

Disliked: The shared-bathroom wasn't clean. It was hard to draw the curtains whereas this was necessary because of the proximity of the building on the other side of the street which does not favour the intimacy.
