I was very touched and pleased at his consideration. I had visited the accommodation previously when in Glasgow to make the booking, and from what I saw then the hostel... More

He told us if we were coming home late we would need to pay a 5 pound deposit for a key. I only have a tenner which he didn't have... More

The location of the Alba Hostel is not ideal, but easy enough via the train/bus. Kitchen area was not clean. The duvet had a large stain on it, when I mentioned to staff he suggested that I swap it with one of the other beds. The bedside lights in my room didn’t work. I would only suggest booking here as...

Nice location, kind staff,clean and cosy, in case of double booking an alternative location is not a problem. Close to botanic gardens, 10 minutes to city center by bus, lots of restaurants close by.We would recommend it to others.
