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........ As you saw we were rebuilding the showers on the top floor so obviously they weren't working, but there are 2 others on the first floor. There are plenty of lockers in reception,...

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. Internet works really good, the hostel is located in very good place close to Glasgow's city...

It's pretty fair to its propose. It's not a 5 star hotel, it's the cheapest accommodation in town, so you can imagine what to expect. It's dirty, sometimes the shower doesn't work, and neither does the wifi. Nice and friendly environment tough, with lots of fun, parties and frosty jacks. hahaha =) and it even has a jacuzzi (!!!) I...

This hostel was fine to stay at. There were 3 of us and had a private room so slept okay. However, the hostel does not look like the photos. It is run down and does not look especially clean. The bathroom is an adventure and I avoided the shower. Luckily I was only there for one night. If you have...

Go to a hotel next time! Seriously? Hostels are not about privacy.

Don't pay 11quid a night and expect the ritz! I think some people just enjoy coming on here for a moan! It's a cracking little hostel, comfy beds, cheap and the staff are awesome! Ended up just going out with the staff first night and it was a reet laugh! Definitely recommended 😊

The best thing is the near position to the city center. It's not so comfortable to cannot eat in the bedrooms. Every one of us is different and can prefer eat alone and not with other people. The kitchen is not so clean, but you could have not need to use it.

As long as you don't come here expecting a 5 star hotel, this is a great place to stay. All the staff members were friendly from check-in to check-out. The reception/kitchen area is cozy and a great place to hang out. The rooms are basic, just beds and lockers (but that's all you need). The place could probably use a...

Neeeever stay in this hostel! There are bed bugs in the beds. the bathrooms are simply disgusting, they are never cleaned. the rooms are in a separate house reception. one day, a strange guy, pushed us out the door when we were coming in and he ran down to the bathrooms. It is not a safe place and is extremely...

Did you get robbed or raped while you were here? No! so it is pretty safe! Sorry that we have 2 buildings and that seems to be a problem for you?

This place was as basic as it gets. Central, but not too much else in its favour. A lot of basic grooming is needed (toilet seats broken, tap not working, etc). The man working on the reception was incompetent. He gave us the wrong key for our room, and to every question we had he answered "I don't know" (Where...

I have stayed in Bluesky before and found it quite alright. I mean it's not luxury, but what do you expect for such a great price. I stayed in 3 different rooms during my stay. The first night was a private room for me and my friend. We had bunk beds and it did us just fine. We were situated...
