I often use hostels while working as they are obviously the cheapest option while alone. This one is the best I have stayed in to date in the uk. Good facilities for cooking, good wifi and plenty of space in communal areas. Chearful staff, showers that work well and clean.Just of the Great Western Rd A82 so good for either central Glasgow or if you want to head north west by car a good spot!!!
