Having travelled with my 5 year old daughter and arriving just after the check in time of 2pm, it was very disappointing to be told my room was not ready and that it was still being cleaned! Once we were checked in, the room was also very disappointing. The decor for the room was extremly old and not to the... More

I arrived with my partner and check in was easy and fast. The room we paid for was an ensuite room and I thought the room was fine for what we paid to stay for five nights. The bed was cosy and tv was big. The room was was cleaned well when we arrived. It was a simple bedroom but... More

Location was great, room was clean. Apart from that, arrived to find the night porter asleep so took a long time to get her to answer the door, while we stood in the cold and torrential rain (Glasgow). The shower went hot and cold at random intervals, and there was only one tiny foot towel available between two people. Also,... More

For a hotel based in a good location, round the corner from the kelvin bridge tube station. Room was an alright size, bathroom had been recently done up. Reasonably clean and was safe. The main problem was they double charged us for our stay. A charge at the time of booking and a charge just before the visit. Although rectified... More

This is by far the worst hostel I stayed at in Europe. The welcome was awful, I felt like I was bothering the staff by checking in. The window was broken in the room and it had a really bad smell. The bathroom itself wasn't too bad, but the showers were so gross I didn't even shower. Ended up cutting... More

I stayed in several hostels all around Scotland, and thought they all were great. So, when I got to the Bluesky Hostel, I was totally shocked. The location is okay - in a student area with nice cafes around and the subway about a block away. The receptionist was nice enough, but not friendly. However, it was so dirty, I... More

This hostel sucked. There were drunk celtics supporters in our room on the first night. They kept terrorizing guests til police came at 5 am and took her out. Shower was broke. The room was cold as hell and the glass of our Window was nearly broken. Lounge was small and some staff members were not nice at all. I... More

If you want to stay in a dodgy part of town, then this is probably for you. It was extremely disconcerting that the signs on the door all stated that we had to be extremely careful. The staff wasn't friendly as we walked in the use the internet and they wouldn't even say hello. The rooms were clean and the... More

On a weekend break to take in the film festival and mosey around the west end. When we arrived we found the hostel to be in a good location and the guy on reception was in very good spirits. We chose the hostel for the price £30 for a double room with ensuite and breakfast(although not to be). But the... More
