I stayed here for one night whilst visiting Glasgow for a concert. I thought it great value. I had a single room (although it had 2 beds) with an en suite. The decor of the room was a little dated but for the price it is amazing value. I feared the mattress may have seen its best but it was actually fine to sleep on and my back normally suffers on a bad bed. Not the case here. There was a little noise with people coming and going at night as it was a Saturday but it was not a big problem. Two major pluses are the staff who were incredibly helpful and friendly, and the location in a big old house in a beautiful part of Glasgow. I was able to walk easily from central station, although it was a fair stroll it was easy to follow and took me only 30 minutes really. I wanted somewhere cheap, convenient and a good nights sleep and that is what I got. The extra friendly staff and great location were an unexpected bonus.

I put 15 Japanese students in here in November 2013. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. The location is right on Kelvingrove Park, a quiet location perfect for accessing both the West End and the city centre. Staff were kind and helpful. The place was clean and well-maintained. We spent three trouble-free nights and have no complaints.

Great location overlooking the park in a lovely big rambling building a 15 minute walk from the town centre and a cheap taxi ride from the station. Super friendly and helpful staff. I stayed in a women's dorm and then a private twin and both were great, with en suite bathroom. Private is worth the extra cost if you are travelling with a friend.

One drawback was that it got hot in the rooms and as the windows only open a few inches, there was little that could be done to let the night air in. This would only be a problem in hot weather. Also, no lifts, so be prepared to carry suitcases up the stairs.

Highly recommended.

Room Tip: The twin private rooms are exceptionally nice for a hostel

Not for anyone who is infit or has a disability with stairs. Rooms are on 3 different levels and no lift. The kitchen is downstairs in a basement with very bad ventilation & hardly any bench space for preparing food if more than 2 people in kitchen, also a fire trap. Our private room stunk so bad, the beds are old and uncomfortable, its not so cheap. If you're on the 1st or 2nd floor you have a long climb up and down the stairs just to make a cuppa. Forget it if you're on the 3 rd floor. The reviews here are misleading. The only good thing i can say about this hostel is the staff, who couldnt be more helpfull, they were great. Do yourself a favour and stay somewhere clean!

A comfortable hostel & secure storage for my bike. The staff were helpful & friendly and the building itself is grand and opulent. The dorm I was in wasn't overcrowded like some of the Independent hostels I've stayed in, it also had an en-suite shower and toilet. The cooked breakfast was excellent and substantial but slightly overpriced. The hostel is in a great location.
