Just stayed for a couple of nights in this great hostel/halls of residence. It's not exactly furnished in up to the minute style but there are plenty of things to recommend it all the same. Firstly, the staff I dealt with both during the booking process and the check-in and out were all superb, both friendly and efficient. Nothing was... More

I am staying here for 1 week whilst working for the Commonwealth Games as a volunteer and its absolutely fine. You get what it says on the box.

It's fair to day that the rooms have varied over the years in terms of cleanliness and general presentation - however, I have always found the student staff to be very helpful and obliging. This year I noticed a distinct improvement in the rooms... More

Location and price sold me on this. It's just around the corner from the Glasgow School of Art, and is usually occupied by students from the school during term time. During the holidays they rent out rooms hostel-style. All I can say is, pity the students who have to stay here all the time. The building in general has that... More
