Nice hostel, a bit away from the city centre but with good facilities and close to the university. Anyway we walked everywhere and it never took us more than 30 min to get somewhere. We had a twin private with private bathroom and the best view over the whole city. Absolutely stunning! More

Internet should be in more areas of the hostel. You have to seat at the lounge to use and you have to pay for it. Should be free. At the lounge are not enough sockets for everyone that are using the internet and want to charge a device. Is a little bit far from the city center. The hostel More

The hostel's location is great right beside the river Clyde and close to the city centre, but the staff didn't seem very helpful and welcoming. My stay was okay, but nothing more than that. In fact, the toilet and the shower in my room was dirty and the hall had not been cleaned after More

The location of the Alba Hostel is not ideal, but easy enough via the train/bus. Kitchen area was not clean. The duvet had a large stain on it, when I mentioned to staff he suggested that I swap it with one of the other beds. The bedside lights in my room didn’t work. I would only More

The bed was really comfortable and warm. The lock on my door was broken though, so no one needed a key to get in. That lowered my opinion for sure. More

The hostel is NOT in the city centre at all! You have to walk at least 20 minutes to get there. This hostel looks like a kind of ghetto run by everybody who is in the hostel! It seems like there is no proper boss. The private room was ok though. because of the fire alarm at 4 am, we had More
