Glasgow Youth Hostel offers 4-star VisitScotland accredited accommodation in a Victorian townhouse overlooking Kelvingrove Park in Glasgow’s lively West End, close to award-winning Kelvingrove Art Gallery & Museum, numerous cafes, restaurants and bars.

Wonderful staff and an amazing area of Glasgow to experience. We had room 310 with the best view over the city. Also so good being able to cook our own meals.

Looking for a hostel?

Budget travellers know that there is no better way to make the most of their trip than by staying at a hostel: save money for exploring during the day, and swap stories with fellow backpackers in the shared kitchen or bar in the evening. Dorm-style bedrooms with shared bathrooms are standard hostel fare, but private rooms are also available for those willing to pay a bit more.

    Great location and price for a cheap stay away. Few minute walk into town. Parking was an added bonus. Early check in option as our room was ready! 24 hour desk for drinks/snacks. Very happily would stay again!

    The Hostel is in a great location within easy walking distance from the central station, the staff were very welcoming and the overall impression was very good. Check in was quick and easy and the corridors were clean and bright. I booked a 4 person room which comprised of 2 sets of bunk beds, 1 was a 2 single combo and the other was double single combo. This was for only 1 night and did the job just fine

    The hostel is in a perfect location to see Glasgow. A lovely safe friendly and cheap place to stay with river views. The staff were truly amazing especially Astrid who was always smiling always interested in how our day was. A lovely friendly warm young lady who certainly made us feel so welcome.

    Best hostel I have ever stayed in for £20 a night as an overnight conference visitor and solo traveller. On a Tuesday night my 6 bed pod was virtually empty and the design of the bedrooms and quality of service was so lovely that I slept like the dead uninterrupted for 7-8 hours and woke up feeling like I was in a posh hotel not a bunk bed hostel!

    Great value, couldn't ask for more given the price. Great location for getting around and 5 minute or so stroll to main shops. Friendly welcome and staff all pleasant whether bar or breakfast. Very pleasant overall. Don't be put off by its ' hostel' status. For a night or two cheap stay in the city, go for it. Room with shower, TV, clean and tidy, lovely fresh beds. Breakfast available for around £6.50. Reasonable spread but note, nothing fancy or high quality. Simple and functional. Would certainly book again.

    I am a solo female backpacker. Booked into a 14 bed mixed gender room, I felt really safe the whole stay, and front desk is manned 24 hrs. and the other guests were quiet, polite and the bed lower bunk bed I had was really comfy. Room good temperature, mattress was lovely. Fantastic way of meeting people, cheap way of seeing Glasgow. I would recommend this company to other single females. Showers and one of the toilets werent brilliantly clean but that was the guests fault not the place, I will bring flipflops and wipes next time.
