I stayed here last year while attending a sporting event in Glasgow. The stay was absolutely wonderful, the staff were warm, welcoming and helpful, and provided us with pretty much everything we needed for our stay. Food was available, so we didn't have to worry about breakfast in the morning. the room itself was comfortable and warm, and the shower... More

We booked a 2-bed room and got a 6 bed room, but for us alone. Room and bathroom was dirty, electronic locker did not work, heating was out and room lousy cold. After second claim, heating was switched on. The beds with having a metal frame and a wooden "duckboard" we're too old for comfortable sleeping. Never again.

I've been living here for two weeks, but I think that I'll stay here for long time. The staff is very friendly, all is very cleaning. I've had the opportunity of meeting very nice people here. I recomand to everybody to want to stay in Glasgow for any reason. This property is available for Commonwealth games in July 2014.

The Hostel was clean and the sheets of the bed were clean at the very least. But I felt very uncomfortable staying there. When I arrived whoever was at reception ignored me for a full ten minutes before paying any attention to me. When I got to my room I met a few long-term residents who very upset as they... More

The first thing we noticed upon arrival is the smell - just like a hospital. We were greeted by a surly member of staff who showed us to our basement room which stank of damp. The bedside furniture was basically pieces of rough-cut wood screwed together, the bed creaked, the springs from the mattress poked me in the ribs and... More

Everything was perfect, comfortable and friendly staff. situated on the bus route, highly recommended. Adel (Egypt) Parking was not a real problem and you did not need the car to go to the city centre. Close to different attractions.The management was very friendly and helpful, very much a family run establishment.

As a student (21) I can usually put up with less than perfect accommodation, especially if it's just for one night, but this place was a complete joke. 11 friends and I booked this hostel as it was close to the site of an event we were attending.We drove 2 hours to get here. We made two separate bookings of... More

I stayed at Alba as a single traveler in an ensuite room, for two nights in June 2013. The room was clean and everything was in good order. What the hostel lacks in charm and fun, it makes up for in cleanliness and functionally. It's withing walking distance of some shops, and train and bus connections into the city center... More
