“Hotel quality in a hostel”
Reviewed April 19, 2011

Put simply, if you don't mind being a short train ride from the city center and don't require a social party atmosphere then you will not get a better hostel stay then at Alba hostel. It is an absolutely beautiful place: great lounge with big tv and comfy couches, big kitchen with functional equipment and top notch guests rooms. The beds are a decent size, not those super skinny single bed you get in some hostels, and they have nice thick warm comforters. The bathrooms are spacious and clean, and the showers, oh my! I can't tell you how good it was so have such an amazing shower in a hostel, roomy hot and powerful, it made my day. Also the wifi is free, and even usually works up in the rooms. If you forget the fact that you a sharing a room (and because it is a nice quiet place it seems to attract nice quiet types, so this is easy to do) than it really is like staying at a hotel, thats how nice everything is. And it is exceptional value, i paid only 15 pounds a night for the 6 bed dorm with ensuite. There should be more hostels, like this around, thank you Alba!

I have not expected so much comfort and hospitality for this very fair price and henceforth was very impressed. Also, the hostel has a touch of familiarity which doesn't make you feel as being a stranger. On the map, it seems to be farther away from city center but it truly easy to reach by Anniesland station (10 min on train). Since the university is so close by, you will find nice bars, restaurants and take aways close-by if you like to stay in that area.
