First of all, it is located far from the city center, but there are good busses to the center. But the worst thing is the beds. You can hear every spring screaming as it it pressed down or real eased when you move an inch. And they are also quite unstable and wobble as you climb up it or move.... More

This hostel could be a great experience but unfortunately it's not. The problem is it's not efficiently run and it's been set up to be convenient to the owners not the customer. You can only check in after 4pm which can be a nuisance if you arrive earlier as you have to sit around waiting. Some parts of the hostel... More

We stayed here for one day and found it very convenient for my children. Nice and friendly management. They were very helpful with all our queries. The best part was that they had a decent breakfast on offer at a reasonable price and at the same time a nice clean kitchen if we wanted to cook for ourselves. For a... More

I needed to stay in Glasgow for two days and picked this hostel as it had a higher rating on the accommodation website. The rating proved to be true! I was met by helpful staff and slept in a tidy, yet a bit congested room. Despite being shared, the bathrooms looked good and clean. I also had the pleasure to... More

We took a youth football team from London to Glasgow and Alba Hostel ensured that we had a great stay. There were 16 of us in total and they were very accommodating to us. The rooms were clean and quiet, the showers were good and the staff were patient with our young people. The local area was serene and the... More

I thought this Hostel was very nice and exceptionally priced for the 2 wks i stayed there. The staff were friendly and the rooms were very clean! This is very suitable for groups and there are some smaller rooms for couples or friends! Breakfast is provided between 8-10am daily for £2 and there are 2 very large lower level kitchens... More

I have to say the dorm I stayed in was the cleanest of any dorm I've stayed in. It had the feeling of a hotel in a hostel setting. It was a busy period but the allocation of beds didn't seem very organised. The first night I was asked if an emergency would I mind staying in the owners house... More

Showed up 2 hours before check in and they made me pay to store my bags... facilities are poor for paying $50 per night because of the commonwealth games and it doesn't even include breakfast. I would never stay here again... better off looking at staying at the student halls in the universities... wish I would have done this...

About a year ago I booked 11 beds for friends/family in order for us to stay in this hostel for the Commonwealth Games - they had advertised availability through hostelbookers.com - I paid my deposit - which they took and acknowledged my booking. Several months later - they told me that Alba Hostel would be closed at that time for... More
