My first staying in Glasgow”

There are several reason, why I wouldn't recommend the Tartan Lodge. First if you have problem with stairs, this is not for You. Secondly there isn't anybody to help You, in case of luggage. I was lucky to find a young Japanese customer that help me in that. The fridge, that should be used by all clients is to small ( was completely full ) ! Wi-Fi it's weak, not usable, and the rooms are also quite small !

Excellent Price for Excellent Facilities”

I believe I paid too cheap for such facilities I enjoyed. The room, the bed, and the shower room are completely clean and excellent. It has a clean communal kitchen with complete free facilities to use. However, it's a bit far from City centre. I came there by car, so it was not a problem for me. Otherwise, there's a bus stop just next to it, so it should not be any issue to reach the city centre.

Hostel with a lot of black and long term guests. NOT SAFE & overpriced! DO NOT TRUST TO ITS FEEDBACK”

i am wondering of so great & so RIDICULOUSE feedback this property has. On other hand: it's not a big deal to any1 make reservation as 'fake costumer' to get the opportunity to leave FANTASTIC FEEDBACK and this way PUMP UP THE SALE, right? 1. I stayed there few times due to LOW price! It was between 5-6£ per night in 8-10 bed dorm, 7-8£ in 4 bed dorm. IT WAS ACCEPTABLE-u get what u pay for. prices now starts at 10£ WHAT IS EXORBITANT PRICE-U can find v clean private 2-bed HOTEL room for 20£ in Glasgow! 2. Hostel is full of black & Romanian costumers. I had incident with a black guy who turned on light at 3am and started terrorised people and disputes. Requested night porter appeared and... did nothing. 3. Every room has one shower with toilet. No common additional showers. It's a problem if 10 people must share 1 toilet and it stinks in room when someone use it! 4. Hostel is out of city centre about 30-40 mins walk. At night it's dangerous to walk - warehouses area.

I spent two days here, and met great people there. The place was quite organized and clean,but the staff there were not as helpful as they should be. I hurt my leg from weeks of travelling,it was really painful for me to climb up and down the upper bunk,so I asked the receptionist if I may have a lower bunk,and they said no, becasue the lower bunk was taken,then the night I found out she lied.

Not worth for the money at all”

It's really dirty here, when we enter the room, one main light in the room doesn't work so that our room was so dark. The bed is super uncomfortable until I can't sleep at all. The bed is collapsed. The water inside the bathroom was like boiled water so all of us only can wash our face by using the showering facility. Wifi doesn't work as it keeps disconnected so my friend was using her own hotspot. Mattress got stained on it. And it's quite far to the city centre by walking around 24 minutes. The only good way of this lodge is their price. However, we were charged 5 pounds per person when we arrived to the lodge at 1030pm while most of the hostel won't charge the "check in late" fee. And they want to charge us 15 pounds when we wish to print our boarding pass at the counter, we think it's ridiculously expensive to just print two pieces of A4 paper. At last we printed our paper outside at only 12 pence per piece. Won't recommend this lodge in overall.
