Typical hostel experience. The staff were friendly and welcoming, the place was clean and the beds were comfortable. All rooms are en-suite. The hostel is situated in a quiet area near a nice park. For what I paid I cant really fault the place. I had a meal cooked for me one evening which was of a good quality. There is a self catering kitchen which is also clean and well stocked - there is a sign up suggesting good places nearby to shop for food. I did not try the breakfast offering as I had to leave early both mornings and breakfast does not start until 0730.
If arriving by train the SYHA website suggests using the Glasgow subway. I found it easier to just get the train to Charing Cross (one stop from Queen Street Low Level) and walk up the hill 10 mins. Consult Google Maps.
