      Good value. Free parking on site. One block from Anniesland train stop. George Square is a 20 min train ride away. There are local shops and eateries (Wetherspoon's, breakfast ~£4) a min walk from the hostel. I would stay again.

      The hostel itself was fairly clean and had adequate facilities with a large kitchen. However, it is not close to the city center. A bus pass is definitely a must. But staff are helpful and pleasant.

      Very clean facilities, quiet at night as the property is away from traffic, and very helpful staff. The outlook is very beautiful. Suitable for family trip. Very recommended for backpackers who bring their own rice cooker and love to prepare meal by themselves just like us because the kitchen is perfect! 🤣 I would rate it 5 stars out of 5. Definitely will come back again when i visit scotland.

      Quite value for money. However take note that there is no toiletries available, no towels, no hair dryer, no lock for storage. The place cleanliness wasn’t much maintained. If it’s just for one night of rest I think it’s passable. Not for fussy travellers.

      Definitely reccommend”

      Very nice hostel, friendly people, cheap and clean, without problem. Little bit far from centre but that's not such a bit problem. Hope to come back one day :)
