Description

The Hostelz.com Review

Euro Hostel Glasgow is the most centrally-located one in Glasgow, and is absolutely massive -- hundreds of beds spread over nine floors. It can be a bit of a zoo when it’s full, but the nonstop party may just be to your taste. Staff at reception are friendly and helpful.

The Location

The hostel is the most central in Glasgow, closest to Central train station but also within walking distance of Buchanan bus station and Queen Street train station. Shopping and nightlife are all around you, and you’ll easily find somewhere to go out drinking or dancing that is just a short stumble home at the end of the night. Many tourist sights in Glasgow are also within walking distance.

Rooms and Bathrooms

Dorm Rooms can be large (as many as fourteen beds, with the usual bunk beds) and may feel cramped when full; floor space can also be limited. Smaller rooms are available for a higher price. There are individual lockers in dorm rooms, and toilets/showers ensuite. Bathroom facilities are clean and well-maintained, and shower stalls have adequate space to change and stow your gear.

Common Spaces

Continental breakfast in the hostel is free, with hot dishes available if you’re willing to pay. Kitchen and dining areas are huge (befitting the number of beds in this hostel!). There is a quiet seating/TV-viewing area at one end of the dining hall, and a separate common room with pool table, book exchange, and other games one floor up. Laundry facilities are also available (for a fee). There is an attached bar on the ground floor with live music some nights and with free Wi-Fi access. Wi-Fi is available in the hostel for a fee, as are computers with internet access.

Summary

This is definitely a hostel for those who come to Glasgow to party! If you’re looking for a quiet and relaxing time, this is probably not the place for you; if, however, you’re looking to meet a lot of people and want to spend your time out on the town, you’ve come to the right place.

Not as social as I'd hoped
booked a large dorm but when I arrived the next day the booking hadn't come through on their end, as there was a system error. I found out that the hostel was at capacity. When I came back 30 minutes later they'd fixed this and out me in a 2 bed dorm. Quite a nice room too.

Satisfactory
The overall standard is good compared to the price. Only the space in 8 bed dorms are very small. The bathroom and toilet facility was good. They were neat and clean. Nothing could be more expected at this rate.

Good
This is a very large, somewhat impersonal hostel. Room was fine, a little noisy when the showers were being used. There was always water everywhere as there were no mats, and nowhere to dry your hands at the sinks. Wifi only works downstairs. It has everything you need, there's just no personality to the place, so if you're wanting to socialise with other travelers I would suggest you pick somewhere else. If you just want a bed to sleep in, it's fine. The staff are really friendly.

Smelly, dirty, and poorly maintained
I stayed one night in a 14-bed dorm. The bed was alright but the hole room was smelly. I mean bad smelling -- the kind of smell that doesn't vanish after an hour or so. The rest was quiet dirty, which is nothing to wonder about in a dorm. Unfortunately the mattress was more yellow than white, as were the linens. Over all it was ok for one night but I wouldn't recommend it if you want to stay longer. Staff was friendly and bar was alright.

Excellent hotel
Great hotel. Cool pub next door with a gorgeous barman. The lifts are totally dodge tho. Had to walk up 9 flights of stairs because the lift wouldn't arrive!
