I stayed here for 1 night in April 2014. The hostel is in a lovely old building right on the edge of Kelvingrove Park with great views across the park and the city. (It was especially good because it was warm and sunny when I stayed). The staff and the other guests were very helpful and friendly. There is plenty to see and do within a few minutes’ walk of the hostel. It’s also easy to walk right into the centre of town, although I did take a taxi to come back at night because I wasn’t totally happy to walk back alone.
The thing I liked least was that the toilets and showers were en-suite. I’m sure this sounds good to some people, but it doesn’t work well in a hostel setting with shared rooms. I was the first to wake of six so obviously I didn’t want to disturb them all by having a shower in the room. I had to search the hostel until I found the shower for disabled people 3 floors down. It was good shower though!
