At Tartan Lodge, we've really embraced our Scottish heritage. In every room, you’ll find colourful tartan carpets to help you get into the Glaswegian spirit. Connect to our free Wi-Fi and let everyone know you’ve arrived with an Insta story update. Once you’ve unpacked, come and say hello in our comfortable TV room. In the mornings, we serve a cheap continental-style breakfast that'll keep the budget happy. Oh and we have a 24-hour reception!


We’re close to Glasgow’s Merchant City district – the oldest part of town and its cultural hub. To get there, just hop on the bus at the Milnbank Street stop (a 2-minute walk from us). Check out the Gallery of Modern Art or Royal Exchange Square, which is filled with cafés and shops. We’re really easy to get to – our nearest train station is Alexandra Parade, which is a 12-minute walk away. From Glasgow Airport, jump on the 500 Airport Express service towards the city centre, get off at Dundas Street, then get the ScotRail train to Alexandra Parade.

All our rooms, whether mixed or female-only dorms or private rooms, come with an en-suite bathroom. We have twin, double and triple private rooms with TVs. You'll have a double plug socket so you can charge your various gadgets while you snooze. There’ll be bed linen ready for when you arrive and if you need a towel or a padlock for your locker, you can hire them at reception.

Extras and activities

After a long day adventuring around town, when you come back, cook in our shared kitchen and relax in our dining room. Just like home! Visiting in the Scottish winter? We have unlimited hot showers and full central heating to keep things toasty. Or grab a warming bar of chocolate at one of our vending machines if you need an after-dinner treat.

    A sweet building and great, helpful, relaxed staff. It’s smaller than some of the other huge Glasgow hostels, so the atmosphere is less aggressively social and more conducive to interesting conversation. Would definitely recommend.

    Very Good

    09 Aug 2019
    Very friendly staff! Different common rooms. Dorm on the upper floor is prettier than the one downstairs. Security cameras around the property, probably very needed because there were some weird people walking in the streets. Talking to us looking for a fight and everything. But yeah, it’s not close to the city but it was cheap and okay. Bathroom was clean and attached to our 6 bed mixed dorm. Again, staff was very friendly and the hostel itself was good just the surrounding area wasn’t.

    Only one member of staff working when i arrived which took 25 minutes to check in as a result. They also don't accept card which was never stated resulting in a 10 minute walk to a cash machine and back when I was already exhausted. Not the staff members fault but one member clearly wasn't enough and she was exhausted but very friendly regardless. Same issue again on check out, took another 10 mintues with one person in front of me. Recommend if you don't mind bad management. Won't use ag

    The ventilation was awful for an 8 bed dorm so the smell was terrible and it was hard to sleep. I wouldn’t stay there again and I’ve stayed in far better places for the same money.

    Beds were too crammed in. Lack of ventilation in basement room was appalling. Noise was terrible; door slamming at all hours.

    This was the worst hostel I've ever stayed in. We arrived less than 30 minutes before check-in and were told very rudely that we had to wait--ok, fine. We waited well over an hour. Then we learned that, despite what it says online, they are cash only. We had to walk up the street to find an ATM. The door to our 4-bed room did not lock or even shut all the way. The bathroom had mold, the sheets were clearly not changed from the previous guest, and the whole staff was so rude it was uncomfortable.

    No control over how people are using the public bathrooms. All were dirty. The one inside the room, people threw up all over, in the sink and everywhere. When reported to the hostel, they didn't even apologise. Disappointing.

    Avoid at all costs! My friend and I were a bit desperate for a hostel and booked this one. Not only is it incredibly far but it was disgusting. The front staff warned us of a creepy man in our room and to not leave either alone in the room opposed to removing him after the previous complaints. Had to share a single bunk because someone else stole my bed and reception couldn’t do anything about it, have been waiting two days to hear back from MGMT. There’s a surprise 5£/pp fee for checking in?
