I booked for a few days and have since rebooked twice. It is ideally located for seeing the city, the nightlife which is student fantastic but it is also really comfortable and as you must have student/international i.d. the other guests are really cosmopolitan and interesting. Facilities are spot on and abundant. It is spotless and well run.

This is a newly built backpackers hostel, the first in the city to be purpose built but to come with lots of free off-street parking is a huge boon to the car hire afficionados who can whisk into the city and find plentiful free parking. Rooms are for groups of four and six and the facilities in ornate Italian marble are ultra modern and new.

Quaint and quirky with a 650-year- old account of the French-Scots alliance exhibition.
Six by four paintings of William Wallace from etchings at his memorials in Smithfield london and birthplace Elderslie Renfrewshire, two stops from central station and a fair sample of Charles Rennie Makintosh's work and the Burrell collection. This is no run of the mill youth hostel.
Also has a super location opposite the city's Mitchell library and its 100 free computer/internet facilities and around the corner from the exhibition centre.
Attracts an international crowd and has plentiful showers and comfy lounges. Best to book at weekends.
