okay

I was looking for a bed for the night and that is what I got.

Better value at the Eurohostel in Glasgow

A wonderful stay, amazing staff and good, clean sleeping.

The proprierots of the Hostel live themselves on the premises.

It's not just a hostel, it's their home - and it shows. They place is bright, airy, clean and generally well maintained.

It's been decorated (in fact, they were in the process of picking out some more decoration when I was there, and one of the guests was offering to help) - e.g. the men's bathroom has its pages covered in comic books for loo reading. There's a codepad entry, a small downstairs lounge with a comfy sofa, a stack of New Scientist, board games, a free snooker table, and a small library as well as a sound system - you won't get bored even if you stay in.

Plenty of sockets are available for recharging gadgets, in the lounge and in the dorms, and there's good Wifi. There's a small kitchen which is free for guests if you want to make your own dinner (fridge is there, too) or just nab some cornflakes and toast. Dormitories, bathrooms and showers are clean. Showers are adjustable with regards to temperature and well maintained. Situated about a 10 minute walk from major metro links in a quiet side road with cafes and little shops, I would recommend this very much. For about 20£ a night, you're more than getting your money's worth. Staff are very polite, welcoming and helpful and happy to give you advice, tell you about the city, or just sit down with a cup of tea and have a chat. Really, very nice people. I'd stay here again in a heartbeat.
