Overall, it's nice. But it's a little bit small of the shared room. Meanwhile, the location is not close to the city centre. But the good thing is that it is next to Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum which is fantastic!

Staying in this hostel is like staying on a piece of art, it really beautiful, the views from outside of it are breath-taking. The staff is really helpful and the facilities are really good.

Everything was great apart from the wifi, which was difficult to connect to at times.

Located in a beautiful part of the city and not too far to the metro station to get into the city. The metro doesn't run all night though so it's a pleasant half hour drunken stroll back in the wee hours of the morning. The hostel is clean and has a really laid back vibe. Staff are a mixed bag. I arrived before check in time and was allowed to use a shower to freshen up, but when I asked another staff member to use the shower after checking out but before I left they said there isn't one to use!

My stay in the Glasgow youth hostel was above expectations. I had a nice, smaller, clean room. With a very nice little bathroom. Great, pleasant personal. And a very nice ambiance in the whole house. Relaxed but with a smile!

We had a great stay at Glasgow Youth Hostel. The staff were excellent, really helpful and gave us great tips. The beds were comfortable and our room had a fantastic view of the city. Kelvingrove Park was on the doorstep and it was beautiful.

Although it was difficult to find, this hostel was really nice! It was really close to a bus stop that had buses going to the city center and the University of Glasgow and the art museum were just a short walk away. There was only wifi in the lounge area which made things a little difficult and also there weren't enough outlets in the room, or even in the lounge. It was very clean and the staff were very nice.

Don't know why this place has such high ratings. This is called a 'youth' hostel. It is not. Most of the people here were 40+ which is fine but don't call yourself a youth hostel. No wifi in your room - only in a creepy downstairs lounge room Plus you have to get a new code every day for wifi! No atmosphere No lamp/light for your bed The clothes dryers don't work The rooms were clean (although the shower pressure is so weak you can't wash your hair) Staff were friendly though

The staff was super friendly and helpful, the hostel had good security, the neighborhood was fabulous and the city is absolutely lovely! There 2 draw backs on our stay: the mattresses were horrible, you could feel the coils digging into your ribs all night and the wi-fi should be available everywhere, not only in the common areas.

I wish I would have done a little more research into the location of this hostel before booking, but that is my fault, not the hostels. It takes about 20-30 minutes to get from the city center to the hostel via bus/subway and then a walk up the hill. The facilities were fine. The staff were nice and friendly. If you're there on a weekend, don't pay 5 pounds for the hostel's breakfast. Dram, right down the hill has a 5 pound traditional brunch that is pretty good! Nice hostel, just a bit far.

Great stay, only there for one night. Only thing is that it's a little bit away from the center. Not necessarily a bad thing, just a little Inconvenient. The actual hostel though was great!

It was great that the reception was open 24h, because we had transport issues, resulting in us arriving 5 hours later than planned! Staff were polite and friendly and the building was very clean! We very much enjoyed our brief stay.

Great cosy hostel if you are looking for comfortable facilities and some nice couches to plonk down on. If you want to party, go to Blue Sky.

Very open and spacious common areas but the rooms were a bit pokey. Good location on the park but not very close to the centre of Glasgow.

This place is great in terms of a safe, good quality place to crash. Parking is ample and cheap, staff are great and area super posh. Like most yha hostels the only real downside is atmosphere is very lacking, so hard to make friends if you are solo travelling. building also very cool though :)

Pretty nice hostel, clean, plenty of space etc. Really close to the uni and Kelvingrove Park, not to far from the west end and city centre either. Only bad thing was the lack of kitchen utensils if you want to cook yourself, the kitchen was pretty basic.
