Glasgow has two main railway stations. Train travellers coming from the north and east will arrive into Queen Street Station while those arriving from the South and West will arrive at Central Station.
Buchanan Street Underground can be accessed from Queen Street station and trains leave every few minutes. Travel as far as Kelvinbridge Underground then exit right through the car park and swing park and climb the stairs to Gibson Street. Walk up through Kelvingrove Park bearing left until you reach the statue at the top of the hill. Exit the park and turn right onto Park Terrace. The youth hostel is on the left hand side of the street.
