Guaranteed No sleep in 101!
Have stayed here before many times and it's good unless you get room 101 Last time I got this so stayed elsewhere for a while Came last night and got room 101 again It's right beside reception with no sound proofing so unless you can sleep through anything And I mean loads of noise, banging, loud voices, laughing, creaky floors and doors slamming, you have zero chance of sleep The wall the bed is against has the reception TV on the other side at head height and is on for most of the time There is a large gap under the door that allows noise, light and cold air in all night The room is OK but it's position means it's not fit for purpose Tartan Lodge is convent for me but I come here to sleep not to be constantly woken up or unable to because of the noise. The room also has a lot of traffic noise and is the coldest I have experienced here even with the radiator turned fully up I will not come back as there's no guarantee I won't be allocated this room again Even earplugs wouldn't help as there is vibration and bed rock from the footfall and doors closing This room should be half the price of any of the others at least Not fit for the purpose of sleeping!

We weren’t standing waiting for 15 minutes to check in because only one person was on desk and someone was booking over the phone. The desk then switched staff and the new member of staff who checked in us was quite rude - told us about an app I had to download to use at the key and didn’t even tell us the room number. The actual room was ok but it was the luxury room so had an en suite.

Would not recommend - not good environment
Not really a hostel, more like a very cheap dorm hotel. Bare-minimum facilities, including adjoining bathroom to dorm (so like five feet from your bed) and limited and small kitchen. Kitchen was not clean when I was there. Bathroom not very clean either. Decor is non-existent. Clientele seemed quite sketchy. Minimally-staffed. Extra charges for basically everything means it's not really even cheap... I would not recommend - find a real hostel or just get a hotel.

If you have a night flight and arrive late from 10pm and on, they charge you 5 pounds. They don't accept cards, only pounds. The hostel has a strong smell, l think is the humidity affecting the carpets.

A huge mistake!
Tbh this hostel’s description was nothing else than a very big disappointment because once arrived there we encountered a series of huge issues: the hot water didn’t work properly in the first night, for the whole stay we didn’t have heating at all, the sink and shower were leaking and the window didn’t close.,. Basically all the cold air was in our room! More than that the bedsheets were dirty and when asked to be changed we have been told that they can’t do anything about this matter and that we had to wait for the 3 nights to pass for them to change anything even though we had everyday house keeping Lay’s for! We asked for many times to speak with the management and nobody have been able to get in touch with them, like they weren’t even existing. It was a very bad experience and for the money we gave we really didn’t get anything more than a bed. When telling them about all these issues and that we want a refund because none of the services have been provided, we have been told that because the room was booked through, they can not do anything about it. We asked at least for some additional heaters and we have been told that they can’t provide any. Basically nobody cared for anything else than taking our money and that was it. I am very disappointed and angry and I would advise people to think many times before going to this hostel!!!
