We have stayed here before and loved it. This time, when planning our trip, we made sure to stay here for a couple of nights. This hostel is nicer than many of hotels we have stayed in. There might not be too many places to eat around the area, but there is a nice Co-Op store

Well considering existing reviews, I was dreading the stay. The first room we were in had a desk nearly broke in two and not light working. After informing the reception at 15:00, waiting two an half hours I went to check to see if it was going to be fixed. I was then informed

Stayed here with 2 friends for 1 night. Booked a 4 bed dorm through the hostel world app. We were put in a 6 bed dorm with 2 others. Not a big deal but we had specifically asked for the smaller room for privacy reasons and had even booked the extra bed so we would be in a room

The room was nice and clean, as well as the bathroom in it. All the people at the reception were kind, The only thing I did not liked is shared kitchen that is a bit dirty , and dining area is too cold.

I didn't use storage for my stuff (just left it on my bed) They have 24 hr reception so I think it's worth giving them a ring and ask (£3 sounds about right)

I just took a taxi from and to the Airport. I believe it was approximately 25 minutes away from the Glasgow airport. From the Central station rail, its not far at all. If you take a bus take the 38C Easterhouse to Alexandria Parade 2nd stop and its about a minute walk. you can take the reverse (any of the 38's) back to central station or George square. All in all the bus ride to and from central station is at best 10 to 15 minutes away.
