Euro Hostel Glasgow
Travel Blogs from Glasgow
We arrived in Glasgow via a long, yet scenic, bus route. We only had one afternoon to explore the largest city in Scotland as it was merely a stopover on our way to Ireland. Unfortunately, though, we encountered our first bat of ****** weather. It rained for most of the afternoon. We had a short, thankfully dry, stroll to check in to the Euro …
I arrived in Glasgow yesterday (July 2) mid day, took a nap until around 6pm and then joined some of my dorm mates, (two guys from France and another from Sweden) and went out for a bite to eat and then eventually a pub with live music. It was a great night, and there's definitely something universal between cultures that after a night of drinking …
Walked around Glasgow some more. Saw St. Columba's church, Renfield's church, the RSNO center where an orchestra was practicing, the Gallery of Modern Art, the Kelvingrove Museum and Park, and the University of Glasgow.

TravelPod Member ReviewsEuro Hostel Glasgow
Good inexpensive place to stay. Close to center and trains/buses. Noisey outside and have to keep windows open cause its kinda was smelly in the room. For the price we paid tho well worth it!

Historical Traveler Reviews Euro Hostel Glasgow
This may have been the worst hotel I've ever stayed in. It was certainly not worth the price, as you can find cheaper accommodation in the Glasgow area, especially if you're willing to not be right in the downtown. It was very noisy, and the front desk was quite slow (not made easier by the ambient noise in the lobby). It obviously caters to the college age crowd. The furnishings are 1-star; I was fine with this because at least I knew when I booked it not to expect much, it being a hostel. Lots of stained carpeting. They don't have a parking garage and finding parking was a problem on the night that I stayed. Don't expect much at breakfast. I think it's OK if you're a student looking to hang out with other students while visiting Scotland; otherwise, avoid if at all possible.
A soggy saga of dodge city central
when they give you towels at reception and explain the water pressure is so bad this isnt for your body its for the floor to stop flooding the floor below you know this is dodge city central. Huge 14 bed dorms and the personality of a cardboard box this weary carpet/ceiling stained upon stained joint is nowhere id rest my bag for less me.Also really expensive considering the rest of Scotland.Photos following
A plumbers dream contract
I could put up with the rowdy drunks ,the seedy local longtermers and the stained walls,ceilings and threadbare material that once was carpeting but the plumbing noise was an entirely new ballgame.
Basically it is so big they dont appear to have any policy on restricting the undesirables.THE 14 BEDDED dorms are very expensive and not value for money when most city hostels in Edinburgh ,Glasgow and Stirling float about the £10 mark without the huge dorms and without the locals running amok all night.They probably cant sleep due to the pipes as well. Not a good place and certainly no asperations to welcome tourists and provide a safe secure environment. In one word RUN.
How amazing were sigur ros in the carling academy!?
this hostel does its job. it does no less and no more. we used to stay in to go to a sigur ros gig in july. the carling academy venue is about 10 mins away from the hostel. it great to use this hostel if you're just going to glasgow for a gig, like i did. we paid 21 pounds each and we got our own room. it had adequate facilities. as you might imagine, youth hostels' interior are pretty drab and dreadful, but if you're only staying one night then who cares. the rooms were clean enough and we got fresh bed sheets etc etc. it's in dead central glasgow (about 5 mins walk from glasgow central train station) and overlooks the river clyde, so getting about isn't much of an effort. it provides the cheapness, you're left to provide the cheerfulness!
Euro hostel Glasgow is not bad AT ALL, considering you're only paying 12 quid a night to stay there! It's a massive place, right near the river, not far from Central Station. In all, the location is good in terms of being near Glasgow City Centre, however, there is a lot of construction around that area and we were woken up around 8am by banging etc. Also, the room we stayed in was like a 12-bed one and they really crammed all of us girls in there; but oh well I mean it's a hostel, what do you expect...I guess the 'best' hostels are the ones that don't bunk the beds and have TVs in the rooms, but I've only seen that in Australia. So, overall, Euro hostel was good value for money and served its purpose as a good place to crash after a night out in Glasgow (go to the Garage on a Tuesday student night and you won't remember that you're staying in a relatively ----- place when you return).
Booked into Euro-hostel , Glasgow, early last week as me and my band were working in Greenwick on Fri. night and in Glasgow on Sat. night. Arrived at hostel at 2.15 Sat. morning as planned,to find staff had no details of booking.
Lots of noisy plumbing problems and stained carepets/ceilings
As the title states the evidence of serious plumbing problems abound.
Take an umbrella in case its your rucksack that gets wet .Personally i have seen more watertight tents... nuff said There are human sized hostels in this city.
Not a bad place to stay. Good location, very close to Central Station and lots of food/bars. The neighborhood seemed a bit shady, but I really had no problems beyond some crazy guy rambling at me. Rooms were clean and cheap, there were lockers you could stash your things in, and staff was mostly very helpful. Apparently they had severely overbooked the place the night before I arrived (there was a sporting match in Glasgow that day) but I didn't have any problems the nights I was there. It was alot like staying in a college dorm, no one cared if you stumbled in at 2am drunk, and alcohol was for sale 24 hours a day from the front desk, a definite plus.
Very friendly staff, but not very helpful. The place was okay but some difficulties with the booking, and I did not get the bed that I paid for, as someone was already sleeping in it! I ended up in a larger dorm in a bed with unclean sheets. No refund was given, or any apology. To be fair I stayed when the hostel was extremely busy, so perhaps staff were having to cope with too much.
Euro Hostel was great. Great location, nice clean beds and bathrooms, huge lockers, friendly staff, internet access, lounge with couches, big screen TV, kitchen area, and breakfast in morning. Definitely recommended...
