Review: Euro Hostel, Glasgow, Scotland

I have stayed in this hostel a number of times, due to its proximity to work.

Post gig or pre shift, it’s a good – if not basic – place to spend the night.

Close enough to the city centre, it’s a 5 minute walk from Glasgow Central station and 15 minutes from Buchanan bus station.

The rooms are pretty basic, going from four-person to 12-person dorm rooms. The hostel also offers some private double and single rooms.

I can’t vouch for the onsite bar but always seems busy enough when passing. There are vending machines available in reception too.

The staff have always been friendly and helpful when needed.

My biggest problem is the lack of lockers in rooms.

While some have the typical sliding cage under the bunks, other rooms at the Euro Hostel have locker units. The room I am currently in only has four of these available for an eight-person dorm.

The rooms aren’t the most sound proof – meaning noises in the hall (including the elevator shaft) will wake you if a light sleeper. Earplugs should sort that out though.

All in all, it’s a good, cheap place close to the city centre. Definitely not the worst hostel I’ve been in!
