Super friendly and helpful staff, great location, fantastic value for money. Even the 8-bed dorm was super quiet. It was all about respecting others. Would highly recommend and will definitely be back!

Overall this is a spectacular hostel, with nice facilities, a clean kitchen, and super amazing staff. I can't speak much about the bathrooms since I was in a private, but the room I was in was very comfy and the bathroom was super clean. The location is a bit far from the main touristy area, about a 25 minute walk, but it's super close to a college town and cute area with lots of cafes and restaurants at cheaper prices than the center. I highly recommend this hostel and would totally stay again!

The Glasgow Youth Hostel provides a top-notch experience with clean rooms akin to star hotels. Friendly and knowledgeable staff contribute to a great stay. The lack of an elevator may inconvenience some, but overall, the facilities are excellent. During my 8 pm arrival, accessing a local taxi from Buchanan station posed a challenge due to Uber's UK payment requirements, but assistance from a nearby bar resolved the issue.
