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, helpful and keen to suggest city walks or arrange taxi cabs, often at special reduced rates! An immaculate basement dining hall serves meals tastefully prepared by resident chef, priced below high street restaurant rates. We opt for breakfast only, taking pub lunches where wanderings find us later in the day. Beer and wines too, also on sale. Beds, narrow, are comfortable - but watch out for reading light fixtures, poorly positioned on headboards just right to bang ones head. Shower immaculate, water pressure superb - bring your own shampoo and soaps. Towels and fresh bed linens are provided. Pay as you go Internet available, specious lounge and TV room on ground floor is ideal for between explorations relaxation..
A scenic walk through Kelvingrove Park’s meandering pathways leads to Glasgow Art Galleries and The Huntarian Museum at the University (both free admission) Nearby Byres Road, the west end’s vibrant boutique, pubs, grocery stores, bookshops Mecca boasts terrific shopping, vintage clothes, thrift shops and more.
Fancy some Glaswegian fare? Greggs Pies - served piping hot at Greggs Bakery are so popular lines form right out the door at lunchtime. Mario’s Restaurant serves best fish and chips, haggis and chips and Italian goodies. Tenannt’s Pub for best prices on pints, whisky’s and wines, goodly pub lunches too.
In short the SYHA Hostel, as in the past, was fun, inexpensive - above all a right friendly retreat after a day of Glasgow adventuring. Be sure to book in advance, especially on holidays and weekends. You do not have to be an SYHA Member, a temporary membership surcharge is well worth it for such admirable digs.
