Everything was dirty and very poor. Paid to stay here, that bad I ended up paying and staying in the travel lodge near by!
Everything ,it was smelly dirty noisey building work unfinished...slept on top of the cover because it was such a dump.
I felt very welcome here. Anthony was a very nice guy as well as the other staff.
It's kind of far from the city center but I can't blame the hostel for this and there are still easy bus and train links.
No towels very little heating
The location is good,
The front door was locked from the inside until 8 am and both days I was there I needed to leave before that and my room mate had to open the back door with her key. The front door locked so late is a fire hazard and there should be some one there earlier to let people out. 8am is too late. I asked the man at reception and he said I would be able to get out but I could not.
Free telephone for taxi, peaceful surrondings
The squeeky beds, which made noise every time sleeping position was changed. This kept waking up.
Cheap price, located out of city centre but next to train station, pub and take-aways.
Toilet and shower in same room and only the one for my dorm.
We were on a budget travel so the price was good for us. The staff were very friendly and helpful. They have seperate kitchens for the guests who have breakfast included and the ones who do not. We had it included in the price, because it was very cheap. The breakfast was good, you could take as much as you wanted and they had a pretty good variety of food. It is located a bit far from the city center, but there are buses very close to the hostel. There are supermarkets, takeaways and similar near by as well.
We stayed there for two nights and nobody cleaned the bathroom in that time. In the hallway, there was a hole in the ceiling and a bucket on the floor, because there was some water dripping from pipes. The walls are very thin and you can hear a normal coversation. The check-in is possible til 10 PM. We had an evening flight and I notified the hostel that we might arrive a but after 10 PM. Never got any reply. We arrived there a few minutes after 10 PM and there was no problem to check-in. We were told we were the only guests in the room, but in the middle of the night two drunk men were somehow able to check-in and come to our room.
The room was very dirty. I was very badly bitten by bedbugs in room 7 the "deluxe twin". Sorry - but there are basic things that all hoteliers can do to stop this problem. This is bad management and sheer laziness. One bathroom was shut down, water was leaking through the roof onto the corridor outside it. The remaining inconveniently placed shared bathroom was used by a very large number of guests and it was accessible after a long walk through the building including entering via the breakfast area. Extra hidden charges - a hefty fee if you pay by any type of card at check-in, an extra fee for "towel hire" and a deposit is held on the outside door key. Against the twin deluxe there are many better options in Glasgow at the same price.
People were so kind and the faciliyies were clean and useful, wifi as well. It is definitely good hostel.
Good location, but very basic for £56 for 2 people. We had private room but bedding old and crumpled. Shower room smelled damp.
Place is not worth the money Breakfast is not a good value for money , all cheap brands and not good quality and is self service. You need to pay for every thing and if you change your mind there is no refund. I stayed there for two nights and bought breakfast for both but after the first breakfast I asked for cancelling the second one and there was no refund for that!!! Never ever will go there.
Good common area with cozy living room, spacious dining room. Individual room is clean, and fairly large, and feels like a hotel rather than hostel. My room was very quiet. Very close to train station.
Breakfast was cereal and bread only. Cant expect more much for 2 quid though!
location staff accommodation space smell
We had a place to rest
Lack of toilet in family room
Everything not good
I don't like anything
This was a fantastic find after having spent two miserable nights in a hotel in London where we could not even have a shower . The shower in the Alba was fab . We opted for b/fast continental but great value for money. The Hostel is very well maintained and very clean. A lot of hostels take payment prior to arrival this hostel does not .The hostel is in an excellent location for access to the center of Glasgow but on a nice quiet street.
nothing negative to find
Friendly staff, nice quiet area and good breakfast... highly recommended
I'm from India stayed here for 2 weeks while I hunt for another job. The stay is really good
When I had to leave erlier, one of the men at the reception agreed to "pass" my payment on my friend so the friend could stay there for free. At the breakfast you can take as much food as you can eat.
I heard an American girl complaing about bedbugs which bit her during three nights. The other thing is, that one men of the staff didn't know which beds are free and showed me wrong one. I was woken up at midnight by a desperate girl who wanted to sleep in her bed but I was in there. WiFi is only near the reception. The staff doesn't respect men and women rooms. Nevertheless, it is a hostel and you can await all these troubles.
Mahomad to be thought people skills and system development in handling people/guests allocating
The owner Mahomad has no people skills nor management system for allocating nor treating customers. He is COLD AND CARELESS.
Hard to quantify but the atmosphere in Alba is very cool and peaceful. It's a nice building, well utilised.
Helpful staff, tidy bathrooms, cheap & good breakfast, fair location
Lack of reachable sockets
Reasonable rate and near the train station and busses
Wifi kept cutting out
- staff very nice and accommodating - clean - good value for money
- there were some noises in the evening - there were some booking problems when I arrived (but the problems related to other travellers)
