  • Great location and site, the Glasgow Youth Hostel was wonderful, i liked the building that the hostel was in. The interior design of the stairs was magnificent, the staff were very friendly and helpful, the room was not too small, and was clean and comfortable.

    The position is quite far away down town and the price could have been cheaper.
