We booked a double room at Euro Hostel Glasgow for 3 nights, the room was spacious and clean, nice view too. The location is very central, which is convenient. Front desk staff wasn't the most friendly, but it was OK.

I paid for a locker but my things were stolen I can't believe it !
Good value for money. Could do with power points by each bed rather than just tucked behind one. Some lockers broken.
Wifi wasn't working half of the time we stayed at the hostel. Also other elevator was out of order and the working one was really slow. Otherwise good value for money.
Euro Hostel Glasgow is not your typical hostel. It is very large and big business-minded. Therefore, it feels more like a hotel than hostel. A cheap hotel for party-goers, it seems. Although the staff was extremely friendly, the hostel is in a sort of eerie part of town. It was definitely not the right fit for our group but for a group expecting to be partying all night long, I am sure it is perfect.
The hostel is in a location you can't beat! The rooms were spacious, had nice hot showers, and good wifi! They had a fully equipped kitchen! The staff wasn't very helpful or knowledged and the hostel was so huge there wasn't much atmosphere, but it's good for a place to sleep and explore! Would stay again!
The hostel is very run down. Mattresses are lumpy and old, the carpet is stained and filled with holes and the elevators barely run. No wifi in the room. One electric outlet in the room hidden behind a bunk. Seems like they are under-staffed and that the employees are so busy they don't actually have time to help their guests.
I really had a lot of problems there. Firstly, I had to change rooms at least once a week. Staff is not prepared to manage the hostel, for instance, each member has own rules, breakfast rules are confusing, lockers never lock. And two big problems happened. The first one, the staff opened my locker put all my stuff in a plastic bag and I was't aware about it. The second and last problem: the last time I was changing rooms, the staff hadn't cleaned the bed. After that I just gone away there.
Broken locker in room 609, and not sure how to secure the lockers.
Stayed in a private double-bed room for a night. It was a nice room, though the bathroom was tiny and not very clean. It was a decent location and around some good restaurants and the bar downstairs was great. Staff was unnecessarily rude.
Rather than a hostel, it seems like a very cheap hotel that had to downgrade. A lot of the people staying there don't seem to be travellers, but rather people (in their 30's and 40's) who seem to be living there. The room itself was decent (although the shower drain was plugged) and had TV. There was moisture on the carpet in the corridor. The common area is not very welcoming. It's very cheap accomodation, you can't expect much more...

Not too enthusiastic about this place. The lobby seems super nice and then you get in the old gross elevator that ascends to even crappier rooms. Moldy showers. Sheets with stains all over. One outlet in the whole room!
Location was great, the rooms were clean but quite cramped. Once the refurbishments are finished the hostel will be brilliant! Little bit pricey if you are paying for breakfast also, but there is a huge kitchen and dining room to make your own food. The staff were friendly but a little disinterested, I would have loved some ideas on what to do and see in Glasgow. Still a great place to stay, with a beautiful view of the river!
I would highly recommend the Euro Hostel to intending travellers to Glasgow. The hostel is large and spacious, with excellent amenities, a licensed bar attached to main building, and the hostel is centrally located adjacent to the waterfront boasting panoramic views of the city. Very good value for money. Currently, the elevators are out of commission which poses a problem if a guest is burdened with a lot of luggage. Otherwise, I had a pleasant stay in Glasgow.
everywhere except the rooms and the reception area is dated... especially the elevator, there is a hanging light. some staff were really nice, but there were a few that just looked like guests were bothering them. positives: the beds were super comfy, the location was great, free wifi negatives: mold in the fridge, basins, mirrors and bathrooms never cleaned, paper and plastic cutlery! no breakfast when its advertised as free still. ideal for laid back backpackers, i would stay again short term
I dont understand why when a deposit is paid on the hostel using Hostelworld and you speak to them prior to arrival about arriving early, and when you arrive they know nothing about it? Bit annoying!
I went mid week and the place was huge and empty- felt like an odd mix between a hostel and a hotel. I had a 14 person room to myself both nights. The top sheets were a bit ratty, but you had sheets to go over them. The staff were not terribly friendly. That being said, it was generally clean and served the purpose
