Before arriving the stay at Alba looked promising, they helped us set up a cab to get us at the airport and were very friendly. When we arrived in the evening to the airport and called the cab driver, he was at home, and had not gotten any confirmation about picking us up, so we waited for him for half... More

The hostel is situated in a quiet West end area only 15 min away from the city center, which is good as Glasgow can be dangerous place. The reception girl is very friendly and helpful. It is important to have a good service. The rooms are good for the price that you pay and are kept clean and tidy. Overall,... More

My stay at alba hostel was pleasant. The rooms were clean and comfy, and there were plenty of bathrooms so that you're not waiting forever. There's a nice kitchen area where you can cook your own stuff and a big lounge where you can relax and socialise with other people out there. The breakfast and lack of laundry services are... More

The member of staff did not know how to stop it and the alarm continued all night. The internet signal was intermittent at best. The location is not central -... More

Spent one short night here while on a road trip with friends. We needed cheap accommodation in Glasgow, as we'd only be stopping here for the night. We literally only spent 7 hours at the hostel. The hostel is situated in a quite lovely house, easy to find, but the inside is very old and has definitely not been updated... More

I only stayed here for 3 nights. Alba hostel is really good value for money, the staff are really friendly, close to lots of public transport options and there is plenty of communal space the hostel is very clean. Room for improvement: the Wifi cuts in and out, there was not enough lockers in my room so I had to... More

I stayed in Alba hostel for two nights. It's situated near to the great area of West End with it's pubs and nice little shops, lovely parks and the river Kelvin. The accomodation is nice, clean, cheap. Staff is helpful you can have a good time easily.

The place is fine. The staff are ok... nice enough. The room was clean and tidy. However, there were people chatting out loud and arguing in the kitchen when I arrived, and even more people partying out loud in the living-room until past 2am.

The first thing I wanna say is the nice price, really nice for backpackers or students. And hostel is very close to the rail station and morrisons supermarket, nice location. Tidy room, very kind staffs, big kitchen, overall, it's a wonderful experience to stay here.

I have had the chance to spend some nights in a couple of hostels in Glasgow. But until I discovered Alba Hostel, I was always counting my days in Glasgow. In Alba, it feels like home and you wouldn't even know you are miles away from home. Nii
