The Hostelz.com Review

Euro Hostel Glasgow is a great hostel right in the heart of downtown Glasgow!

The Location

The hostel is located down by the water, with only a short walk to a supermarket, the heart of downtown Glasgow with its bars and art galleries, and of course to McDonald's for the hangover you will have the following morning after partying in this outrageous city. The bus station is about a fifteen-minute walk from the hostel as well. Public transport options to other parts of the city for sight-seeing are also super accessible -- the St. Enoch train station is only a short walk away.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The dorm rooms are good, with a great amount of space for you to move around and put your stuff and they have large lockers in which to store your valuables. The beds are clean and comfortable. There are multiple toilets and showers off the dorm room with a separate sink area as well for hand-washing and teeth-brushing. It makes it really easy to move about and do what you need to do when sharing with quite a few other people.

Common Spaces

On the first floor of the hostel, there is a large area for sitting and hanging out. There is a pool table that you can use and a few books on a shelf for reading. Off this large room, there is also an industrial-sized kitchen for cooking meals if you are on a budget; not many people are really in this area, however, and if you want to be in the action, then the bar downstairs is where it is at. The bar isn't just full of hostel patrons -- it is open to the general public. If you are feeling lazy and don't want to cook or leave the hostel, the bar also does food.

Summary

This is a really great hostel. It is well organised and has a laundry room if you need to do laundry, and luggage storage if you arrive early or depart late to drop your stuff off. The staff are helpful and friendly and can help you with whatever you need in the reception area.

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.
