Alba Hostel served as my home as a transitioned from living in the U.S. to living in Glasgow. The staff is incredible and kind, I had a fantastic stay. It's been over two years since I've stayed there, though I just stopped by the other day for an extremely pleasant catch up with a member of the staff. Highly recommended, they make you feel welcome.
I arrived at this hostel due to covid 19 and the owner really saved my ass...I was put in a very hard situation but yet he took me in and saved my behind...Mauro is a lovely guy and he goes above and behond to make people feel welcome...if I’m being honest himself? the owner and Stuart and Sandra are four very decent people and the world would be a much better place with more people like this...I can not rate this hostel highly enough X
Had a wonderful time exploring Glasgow. Stayed here as a volunteer then as a guest, I'm allways amazed by the hospitality and vivaciousness of Mauro, also the owner has a genuine interest in people. Very relaxed and family friendly vibe at Alba.
I stayed here for just over a week and was surprised at how welcomed and homely the place felt. Mauro the man who runs things was a perfect gentleman and made sure everything was spot on. I’ll be coming back for sure. Thanks guys
Mauro is an amazing host and always makes me feel so welcome and he's very patient with me when I'm in a rush too (sorry). Hostel is clean, great value and is now my regular spot to stay in when I visit Anniesland. Definitely recommended. Great transport links too, right by the train station.
I've been in countless hostels around Europe and this is by far one of the best I've ever stayed in. The atmosphere is so wonderful, lovely and I always felt safe as a woman - the owner is so so so kind and friendly and the beds are so comfortable. I can't recommend this enough.
I had an amazing stay at Alba Hostel. Even though I was unwell on arrival Mauro made sure I was ok, checking on me and made me feel extremely comfortable. He was there for anything I needed. The hostel itself has everything you need as well :)
This is the 2nd time i have stayed here and the hostel is very clean , fresh and friendly. The best part about the stay is the main manager Mauro , he is very kind and welcoming and he attends to your every need and request which make the time here brilliant.
Well accommodate hostel, comfortable beds, clean new bedclothes, the bathrooms are sparkling clean. Mr. Mauro the manager of the place is a really friendly person, making pro-communism jokes, if not with anyone else at least with me. Alba isn't in the city center, but easy to reach by bus or train, or foot if you prefer, the University of Glasgow is easily to arrive on foot. I staid a couple of weeks and I recommend, good value for money.
Really good place to stay felt more like a Hotel than a Hostel, we stayed upstairs with own suite bathroom Kettle for hot drinks, and supplied towels, really nice staff and comfy beds, will definitely come back, take aways and supermarkets nearby really good and good location, thanks Alba for all recommendations and receiving us with such honours
