        Getting there.

        Glasgow Airport is within driving distance.

        By car from the M8 motorway westbound, take Junction 18, marked Charing Cross and Kelvingrove, and follow signs for the hostel. If traveling eastbound, take Junction 17, marked Dumbarton, then merge left onto the A81. Turn left at the first set of traffic lights and right at the next set of lights and you'll find yourself on Woodlands Rd. Follow the signposts from here.

        Getting around.

        Central train station and Queen Street station are a short drive away.

        From Central Station take bus number 44 or 44A (destination: Knightswood, Cowdenhill Rd). Get off the bus at the the first stop on Woodlands Road. Follow signs for our hostel up the hill.

        From Queen Street station reach Buchanan Street Underground that is of easy access from Queen Street station with trains leaving every five minutes. You need to travel to the Kelvinbridge Underground then exit right through the car park and swing park and climb the stairs to Gibson St. 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 hostel is on the left hand side of the street.

        Buchanan Bus Station is within driving distance, so you should take the bus number 44 or 44A (destination: Knightswood, Cowdenhill Rd) from Central Station (Hope St) or from Bath St if you are coming from Buchanan St bus station. Get off the bus at the the first stop on Woodlands Rd. Follow signs for our hostel up the hill.

          Nous avons d'abord ete impressionnees par le caractere victorien de la maison et la belle situation (surplombant la ville).

          Le premier matin nous n'avons pas eu d'eau chaude pour se laver. c'etait accidentel mais c'est dur de se laver a l'eau froide avant de passer une journee dans le froid de novembre!

          I was unfamiliar with the Glasgow Youth Hostel when I first originally made the booking. I felt like I took a chance with it; it was important to me that we were in a safe neighborhood, it was clean, etc. We were so happy with how safe the hostel was located, the friendliness and the customer satisfaction that were evinced from staff, as well as the fact that they were able to give us a 5 A.M. wake up call (well, not a call; they came to our room and knocked). I will absolutely stay there again while in Glasgow. Also, the hostel itself is an old, beautiful home; I greatly liked the super high ceilings, massive wooden doors and staircase, and the quirkiness from age. It's a 5 minute (or maybe 10) from the museum. The Glasgow Youth Hostel was wonderful. You'll like it too. They even have food and beverages available for a modest fee- beautiful!

          it's cheap, good, passion, people there.

          the position is quite far away down town.

        • Single
          5.8

          The common areas were fine and spacious, the interior design of the stairs was magnificent, en suite bathrooms have their pluses and minuses - an older lady (50+) living in my room turned the lights off at 8.30 every day and as I came back from sightseeing much later I never get the chance to refresh and take a shower. Plus people waking up really early (as early as 6 o'clock) started taking showers early which made it impossible to sleep in. Bedrooms were spacious. There was lots of room for luggage. Rooms were quiet and there was not much noise outside the window.

          The range of age of people in the rooms were really odd - I mean how can you put older ladies (over 45) with 20 something years olds twhen you know exactly that younger people will come back later and older will want to go to sleep earlier and then harass younger people and tell them off if they came later - and by the way I think it is against the youth hostel rules to turn off the lights at 8.30 - even though I always came back before 10 I did not have any chance to get changed and refreshed before I went to sleep and was on a few occassions told off by an older lady leaving in the same bedroom - when probably she shouldn't be allowed to be accommodated in a youth hostel when she cannot stand sharing a room! There are no external bathrooms nor showers. It makes it impossible if you wanna take a shower later at night or really early in the morninig - before you go to the airport. Lockers are not safe - you have to have your own padlock and if you don't - others can steal your things. Shower rooms had no doors - anyone could just bump into you if you were there. No free maps provided and no guided tours - made it really difficult to move around. No evening activities provided as well - no pub crawls nor any other suggestions. No communal socialising. Location was just dreadful - it was really far from the nearest metro station and no buses in the close vicinity as well. It takes around 40 minutes to get to the city centre and at night you have to go past a really dangerous and darkened park - I heard lots of people got mugged there. No shops in the closest area as well - you had to walk for at least 10 minutes to get a bottle of water (not to mention that at the reception they sell all different types of alcohol beverages - but no water! And the vending machines eat your money and are always out of stock). Paying for Internet is just a rip-off. Never had I meet anything like that in any other hostel or hotel that I've been to.

          The staff were great

          I'm a vegetarian - so I didn't like it when there was no substitute for bacon and sausage in my cooked breakfast - instead I was offered twice as much of the other things (which I did not want). Good veggie sausages etc (even bacon and ham - look at the quorn range of products - they are excellent). are available at all major supermarkets.

          Glasgow Youth Hostel is very central in a really quiet position near the park. Staff is really friendly and helpful.

          Rooms aren't ok but not too clean.

          The food is excellent and service far better than you would get in 3star + hotels, cannot recommend it enough
