People need to chill, this place doesn't claim to be a 5 star hotel. I had absolutely no problems whatsoever. Everyone was super friendly and nice, the hot tub was great, the common room was fun! I had such a good time and hardly spent any money at all, would for sure go again!

Look, this hostel doesnt claim to be anything its not and for the prices, you get what you pay for, its as simple as that. And for the price I paid for a night compared to a hotel, well you cant really complain. Yes a dorm room will smell, yes people will probably wake you at some point but its... More

Never stayed in a hostel quite this bad before. Random people who weren't even staying at the hostel stayed in our room for 2 nights, people were yelling and shouting all night until 6.30am when they passed out on the floor. While the girl on the desk was nice, the boss verbally abused her in front of everyone about towels... More

If there was someone in your room why didnt you say something to someone? Typical! people cant say anything out side of a facebook window at the time there is a problem but you can write a big review about it later when nothing can be done about it... No social or communication skills with out WIFI... Where on our... More

someone from the staff walked into our private booked room (all girls) in the middle of the night (4am) without knocking or apologising (the door was locked!). This made me feel uncomfortable and all of us felt incredibly unsafe after that, we were all sleeping with the lights off, so there was absolutely no reason to come in. The fire... More

Sorry about the fire alarm, someone tripped it by smoking in a room and then they tried to rip the sensor off the wall which made the fire alarm go crazy. Someone had to go in your room when the fire alarm goes off and checked there are no problems. Its the law... More

The staff is very friendly,and helpful. The room was a bunch of kind of small bunk beds with one outlet. They did have the bedding already on the bed when i got there, so that was nice. Place has an old building feel, bathrooms are ok. Upstairs shower was great, except they didn't have a hook to hang a towel.... More

First of all, You are not backpackers! There is always small cues in a hostel as everything is shared. Yes you have to make your own beds. The wifi is free in the common room at the reception. Its a place to sleep not an internet cafe. Get a hotel next time. More

Stayed for one night while visiting for the Scotland v England game at Celtic Park. When a place states "backpackers only" you should know what to expect (ie not a room fit for Princess Di) and I wasn't disappointed. Friendly and helpful staff knew the city well which was a big help as a first time visitor who struggled to... More

I stayed at this hostel about a year ago now and I'm just snooping around all the hostels I stayed at over the course of the trip. When I first walked in this hostel I immediately regretted my decision to stay here. I went on my phone to see if there was any other options around. No wifi. So I... More

Cheers mate, People are missing the point about this place. I want it to be cheap as possible and social as possible, save your money on accommodation and spend more on beer. I could put more money into fixing the place up but then i have to charge more. then i have to have better service and then i get... More

Stopped here from 7th - 10th November, on arriving first impressions were good, friendly staff and a good atmosphere, everything you would expect in a hostel. Booked a private room for me and a friend, the room was fine, even with a hand drawn map covering a hole going through to a shower and the smell of damp was bearable.... More

Some inconsiderate fellow guest of yours flooded out the whole bathroom. There is nothing wrong with it on our end. We cant be... More

Just spent the weekend in this hostel (November 7-10) and I don't expect much from hostels, just a clean and safe bed to sleep in with a shower of some sort, that works and a toilet and I'm all set but this is by far the worst hostel I have stayed in. First night was great, had no issues at... More

We did our best to sort the situation but as the hostel was totally full as usual we had nowhere to put you. As for the cause of the flood was that someone flooded the shower room above your room. And instead of stopping their shower or informing anyone that something was wrong, they just continue to shower. continue to... More
