Welcome to our hostel

Situated in the popular West End of Scotland's largest city, overlooking Kelvingrove Park and Glasgow University, Glasgow Youth Hostel is the perfect base for groups looking to explore the city.
The youth hostel is a splendid Victorian townhouse, blending old with new, and offering rooms which vary in size from singles to eight-bedded, all en-suite. Other facilities include a lounge, TV room, games room and laundry room. Meals are available for your groups offering a full board basis on request with a separate self-catering kitchen and dining room for those guests choosing to self-cater. Chargeable on street Pparking can be found on the streets surrounding the hostel, with free coach and guest parking a little further afield.
Glasgow Youth Hostel is a 20 minute walk from the famous Ashton Lane with its unique collection of bars and restaurants, and only a 30 minute walk from the city centre. Buchanan Street ('The Style Mile'), with Princes Square and a host of top shopping opportunities is only a 30 minute walk away and Merchant Square, with its indoor craft fair and diverse range of cafes, bars and restaurants, is well worth a visit.
For those groups with an interest in culture, Glasgow has a host of attractions to offer. These include the nearby Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, Riverside Museum, Botanic Gardens, Gallery of Modern Art and Glasgow Science Centre. Many of these have free admission making them ideal for exploring on a budget. Glasgow could never be described as shy and retiring. Embracing the concept of street art, Glasgow has launched a city centre mural trail. These epic pieces of art bring new life to the city's brickwork, brightening up local areas and giving local artists the chance to showcase their work.
With a number of great music events taking place throughout the year, Glasgow's SECC, Armadillo and Hydro Arena are all within 30 minutes' walking distance via Finnieston with its artisan bars and eateries.
So if you are planning to visit this bustling vibrant Scottish city with a group, why not make an enquiry for your stay today.
