I spent three nights there. Yes the beds and bathroom are fine, but that's all for this hostel. It is far from the city center between 50 minutes and 1 hour walking. And the bus ends up at 11h30. So forget about famous Glasgow night life... Which is a shame, because there is not a lot of things to do... More

We enjoyed our stay very much. Clean, friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Not in the city center but only a few busstops from bustling shopping street with good restaurants. (Byres Road). The Botanical Gardens, Kelvin Grove and Kelvin Gallery. We will be back. Family Taylor from Holland

I stayed in Alba for whole one and half month. Its very affordable and nice place to stay. Me and my friends had excellent time here. Staff is very friendly and prompt. They take care of the proper maintenance and cleanliness. Its just 2 min walk from Anniesland station and Morrisons superstore. Customised service is excellent. Big kitchen, plenty of... More

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

I stayed at the hostel for a few days when working in Glasgow. The night I arrived there was an alarm going off on the fire door outside my room. 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

Room for improvement: the Wifi cuts in and out, there was not enough lockers in my room so I had to... More
