The hostel is two delightful Victorian buildings combined into one. The vast majority of the staff were very helpful, especially a young dark-haired woman on Reception who carried my case up for me & helped me sort out the bedding. This was important to me as I find things involving manual dexterity extremely difficult. The internet access was very reasonably priced (only £1 for an hour) and I also liked the hot drink & cake deal (£2). I wanted to cater for myself, but I found to my disappointment that they only had gas for cooking and there did not seem to be any grills, so I could not make cheese on toast, which is a favourite of mine. I have never used gas as we don't have it in the flats where I live & so I did not feel comfortable about using it. Otherwise, I had an enjoyable stay, I had a bottom bunk which was great as I have a bad back & it was near the window. Definitely worth a return visit as it borders the picturesque Kelvingrove Park, which I look forward to exploring on a future visit.
