    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.

    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.
