Our rooms had their own toilet(s) and shower(s), which was very nice. There were towels available for each one. Rooms have view on a park or on the back of other buildlings. It's a very big hostel, so you might walk a lot (of stairs) to your room. Kitchen is down down, and there's a lot of space to cook... More

I found this to be a really nice hostel, I liked having an ensuite in my dorm room, as well as in my private room when I transferred. The building itself was really cool, and it was in a great location. I also loved the map I got from the front desk, it was written by locals and hilarious, as... More

SYHA Youth Hostel - 8 Park Terrace, Glasgow G3 6BY, Scotland (West End) - a great location, tops for value, friendly ambience. During our Glasgow visit we, again, opted for this superb hostel we booked a private en suite room with large window overlooking Kelvingrove Park, echoes from Glasgow University’s deep voiced bell marking the hours. Hostel Staff were cheery,... More

I have stayed Youth Hostel for 6 nights. It was my first time to travel alone. Youth Hostel definitely gave traveler a very clean environment to live. From bed-sheet to bathroom, not to mention excellent kitchen and public reading room. Staying there, I could appreciate great scene by over viewing the western of Glasgow. Also, Youth hostel's security makes me... More

Stayed here mid-October 2013 after a really harrowing day in Glasgow. Was very uncrowded -- my friend K and I were the only people staying in our room, even though it was a dorm. No complaints at all with the hostel. Staff were very friendly, despite our late check-in, and recommended relaxing in the beautiful hostel lounge (with incredibly comfy... More

I stayed here for 1 night in April 2014. The hostel is in a lovely old building right on the edge of Kelvingrove Park with great views across the park and the city. (It was especially good because it was warm and sunny when I stayed). The staff and the other guests were very helpful and friendly. There is plenty... More

I stayed for one night in a dorm and was very happy with how clean and tidy the place was. The building itself has a good 'feel' to it, the lounge is large and comfy, and on the whole it's a nice place to be. It's a short walk to the city, but its location gives it some fantastic views.... More

We stayed at the Glasgow Youth Hostel for 2 nights in January and really enjoyed our stay. We were after somewhere a bit cheaper than your average bed and breakfast. We booked a double room with en-suite it ended up being about half the price of a bed and breakfast. We arrived before our room was ready so we have... More

A surprisingly pleasant week in this nice area of Glasgow. Cheap parking, comfortable large double room and pleasant staff. I'm not fond of budget hotels but on a budget this place gave good service. My only negatives were the ridiculous charges for internet usage - WiFi really should be as much as the service as a bed and shower these... More

I booked a room at the Glasgow Youth Hostel last minute as we were coming through to Glasgow for Hogmanay, we were not looking for anything special just somewhere to lay our head and as the reviews on here were good I decided to go ahead and book. The hostel is about a 20minute walk from Charing Cross Station and... More
