Our room - a double - had a great view and was quite comfortable - even offering in room tea/coffee making facilities.

This hostel is situated in a relatively peaceful neighbourhood, around a 10 minute walk from Sauchiehall Street. Due to the location, there are plenty of parking spaces available. We stayed in a room of two – with the room as expected, basic. The hotel is clean although it could do with a makeover. The views from our window were outstanding.... More

Each time I've stayed I've been out late and have had no trouble with the place. The staff are friendly as well. Only draw back it that it's quite out of the way. You could walk from... More

Great location, amazing building and super friendly staff. Big kitchen and all spotlessly clean. Run by folk who know what people want because they travel themselves. Looking forward to visiting again soon. Highly recommended.

I have reported this as inappropriate, it refers to a member of our team by name and is completely untrue. Tripadvisor please remove this, our team member has asked this to be done so. I have tried to report it using inappropiate but it does not allow me to do so. Thanks Lorna Padden More
