Scotland the Best
The best hostel in Glasgow! But don't just take our word for it, come and see for yourself. We are situated in the heart of Glasgow's historic West End and act as an excellent base for discovering the city's art galleries, glorious architecture, friendly culture, shopping and fantastic nightlife.
We believe that we've created a seamless blend of old and new by combining the stunning, original architectural features with en-suite rooms, Internet access, excellent catering and self-catering facilities, TV room, games room and guest laundry
We carried out a comprehensive refurbishment in 2004 and have since been awarded 4 stars by Visit Scotland. We constantly strive to offer our guests the best possible standards in the following areas:
Warm Welcome - provided by our International and multilingual staff.
Security - We use a secure swipe card entry system and have a comprehensive CCTV system.
Cleanliness - We dedicate a minimum of 12 hours to cleaning the hostel 365 days a year!
Comfort - We have 3 large lounges for you to relax in and don't forget our cozy coffee shop!
Privacy - All of our rooms are en-suite so there is no need to wander the corridors in your towel looking for the shower! (Please note: for additional privacy our dormitories are single-sex).
So come along and enjoy all of what our hostel, and Glasgow, has to offer.
