Lovely hostel in a superb location. Very friendly and efficient staff. The hostel is a clasic building with very good facilities and is very clean, the rooms are not crammed with very good showers. There is a bus stop and a shop nearby. Very recommendable.

I stayed for 3 nights when I visited Glasgow for a meet with friends. Nice place, clean and presentable. It's like a manor house converted into a hostel. It's not rowdy or anything like that and the ages of the residents are more senior than young, hence the hostel's name is a little off. No curfew, 24 hr reception, fully...

It is a youth hostel but we were a family of four sharing one room. It is all very basic but we did not lack anything. Staff was very friendly and helpful. We took a walk to the city centre for dinner, then slept well and had a good breakfast. Very good value!

Upon arriving at the hostel the staff were able to quickly check me into the hostel without any fuss. In the basement area there is an eating area/cooking facilities. On the ground floor you can purchase some general items amongst a small selection of food and drink. There is also an area where you can meet people or sit and...

Friendly staff who were so nice and very helpful. Very clean and modern rooms that were cosy and comfortable. A bit of a walk into town but not too far and it's on a main road so it's a straight walk in. Unbelievable value for money. Would recommend to everyone.

Friendly staff. Cozy drawing room. Good breakfast buffet. Located on top of a hill (not in the city center but close to a tube station). Rooms are equipped with lockers. The house is quite astonishing.

Do not stay here. There is false advertisement about this place all over the internet. No wifi, very far from the city, and the facilities are falling a part. Avoid this place at all costs even if you have to pay a little extra. It will be worth it, trust me!
