READ THE HOSTEL DESCRIPTION ! The hostel description clearly states 18 to 35 years of age. no families and no grumpy old people! your review is total lies! and to think we felt sorry for you as you showed up in the rain at 22:30 soaking wet, we felt sorry for you so we let you stay with a minor......

Bathrooms suck!!!! the showed flood, and it smells. Bed is firm, but the floor has tons of crap on it. Only one outlet for the whole room. No lockers that you can fit a pack in. As long as you are only sleeping for 1 night, and don't need to charge your phone, it's great! Can hear what sounds like...

Ok! the bathrooms are awesome! they have all just been renovated to a top standard. There is a mop to clean up the showers after you use it but selfish people never clean up after themselves anymore. we clean 1 time a day. its not a 5 star hotel its a 1 star hostel and its the cheapest place in...

It's not the best hostel in the world, but it's not the worst. And at £12 a night, you can't really complain. We booked a private room for 3. Beds were in the form of a bunk, with the lower bed a double. Beds were very very creaky, and sheets clean (we hoped), but stained. The room comes with a...

Stayed here with some friends while we visited Glasgow, I've stayed in some pretty bad places, but this was new; couldn't tell who worked here and who was just visiting, the rooms were a mess, there were holes by the beds and unknown substances on the lamp shades. We weren't allowed to bring any drinks into the room, not even...

I always love these year later reviews buy people who could have or could not have stayed here. The rooms were a mess... Um hey , your sharing a room with other people, we cant control how people leave their stuff everywhere. If we came in the room in the morning and told you to clean up your mess you...

Very fun, laid back hostel. The staff seemed outgoing and knowledgable about the city. Only downside is the lack of fridge space. If you get a chance have a chat with the owner Todd, outragously funny dude.

I stayed here for four nights in a mixed dorm. It was a nice stay, the staff was friendly and the facility was clean. They had some great painted doors with different themes. And the facility is expanding which is pretty neat. Also, if you stay on the weekend and ask politely they might let you work off your bed...

We were here for one night and it was the cheapest place we could find. Great location near the city center and could easily find where we needed to go. Friendly and lovely staff. Rooms and bathroom facilities were basic. When choosing a bed try and get one with a plug

I had a terrible experience at the hostel. I only booked because it was a cheap hostel not too far out. I arrived and was told that because I was leaving early I would not be able to get my deposit for the key back. They said that I could wake up to give the keys back just before 4,...

Oh Kelsey, this is just not true... You were told reception closes at 04:00, for an early checkout make arrangements before you go to sleep. If you are creeped out to cross the street I'm not sure how to respond to that. Have a great day

non-functioning shower, uneven floors, steel frame bunk beds you're sure will collapse, torn wallpaper, cramped rooms, thin walls, dim lighting, and doors without handles. no lockers, or any real security measures.

Thanks for taking time out of your day to leave a review Orlando You sound so unhappy but yet YOU CHOSE to extend your stay with us........

The hostel is really good and clean, I had no problem with the bed and there is so many things in the kitchen that everyone can use, the only problem is that they have just 2 showers for all the people in the hostel.
