Nice hostel, friendly staff, clean toilets and comfortable enough room. The location was great, in the centre of Glasgow, right next to Glasgow Central station and a short walk away to Buchanan bus/coach station. Also it was next door to a Lidl supermarket and quite near to two shopping centre. My only two complains are the number of electricity plugs, as there was only one plug in a room of four girls!!! And the "free wi-fi" that didn't work at all :(
Pretty average hostel; I remember it being the cheapest I could find in Glasgow. The Wifi was not that good and the staff didn't seem to know or care about fixing it. I don't think I would recommend it, but then again it was the cheapest I could find at the time I booked. The hostel does have a pretty good location.

It's well located, unfortunately the breakfast is not included. It's a huge hostel, and very well organized. I stayed in a 14 male bedroom and it was ok.
It was a decent place to spend a night. We had a few weirdos in our room but that could happen anywhere.
Nice hostel a block from the central train station. Thanks
nice location and low prices are the only ++ of the hostel. if these are the most important then this is the place for you. I would not stay longer than one night though. WiFi disconnects regularly. btw, birds outside make lots of noise especially at night. maybe it is not a problem if your windows are on the other side of the block. my room was 407.

Great location, new accommodations, clean, comfortable, hostel bar is quite good. Really nice stay, only one problem: room lockers were broken.
The only negative points: the ventilation on the bathroom goes on for 20 minutes every time you turn the bathroom light on, which can be very annoying at night and the laundry is more for usual customers than for just one time (you have to buy a card). The kitchen is very good, but some more utensils would be great. The security in excellent and everything is very clean.You can meet people only in the kitchen, the only common area, but I can't complain, I met really people in there. Great price!
It's just not a good hostel. It's perfectly located and is in a town that really lacks quality and affordable competition. Euro hostel knows this and as such knows it will do business regardless of how well run the place is. I've stayed here a number of times as there isn't too many options in town. If there was better competition I'd stay elsewhere because I remain completely underwhelmed by this place.
That's definitely such a nice hostel to stay in and I would recommend it without a second thought. It's quite a safe (you need keycards to get access to the rooms and they offer lockers in the rooms), clean and hotel-alike hostel. Rooms, beds and toilets are alright. Great integrated bar! Downsides: limited free wifi (you have to pay if you wish more time) and no breakfast included, which is pitiful once all the other hostels I had been to in the UK included breakfast.
This hostel is good. Beds are assigned in the dorm rooms and outlets easily accessible. The wifi can only be used in the lounge or main lobby, it doesn't work in the rooms. It's clean and has decent beds.
This place feels like a hotel where people are crammed into like sardines. There are no plugs for your charger, the wifi is bad, there is not good common room, it is hard to meet people. It is nice because the bathrooms are in the rooms, so that part of it is okay, and the showers are pretty good. But otherwise, very little space to move around, and my locker was broken so I could not secure my belongings. Weird place.
Overall ok. Had a private double and it was a great size. Paid for breakfast but much of the food was empty and not being refilled.
hostel was overall pretty good has a bar down with cheap drinks kitchen and games room my bedroom had a ensuite only thing i found is the room was small with a 4 bedroom dorm but overall i was happy with it
Mattresses are far too soft, or worn out. Everything else was acceptable.
Everything was top-notch. Clean, friendly, wifi in rooms, centrally located and only two blocks from Glasgow central train station. I'd stay again and recommend it to any traveler.
Refering to the issue of security: We really missed lockers in the dorms.
We did not really have contact with the staff, that's why I cannot put a high mark. The kitchen was often very dirty, and the dining room with it "canteen style" was too impersonal. We felt like we were alone in this huge place ... The lifts would deserve to be renewed. And the walls are not soundproof, so the neighbours' tv could be heard very easily.
Facilities are very old and really need an upgrade. Cleanliness is an issue - rooms had carpet in terrible conditions and very dirty, toilets seemed to have not been cleaned for a while and shower flooded. Wifi service is very irregular. Staff at the front desk are not friendly. Hostel is huge, and seems to be understaffed, which would explain why it looks so dirty. In general rooms were not clean at all.
I stayed at the hostel for the closing ceremony for the commonwealth games. The atmosphere was great and there was a real buzz. It was nice and quiet when I got to bed at 1am. The dorm wasnt very spacious for the 4 of us but it worked.
