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.

Liked: Staff were friendly and helpful, rooms were clean and comfortable, breakfast was AMAZING and FREE! Close to many restaurants and a grocery store.

Disliked: It was rather far away from the city center and about 15 minutes from a bus stop, in addition to being at the top of a hill. Overall, that meant a lot of walking, but it was well worth it!

Liked: it is located directly between city center and kelvingrove park. to the center it is about 15 minutes walk (same for the park).

Disliked: I had a single room directly above the kitchen, which was unbelievably loud in the morning. So i had to sleep with ear plugs.
