Search the Glasgow hostels map with up-to-date availability and book a hostel in Glasgow.
Although Glasgow and Edinburgh are close on the map, the two cities are very different. Glasgow is much more a regular Scottish city, traditionally an industrial one, but recently becoming more of a culture city.
There is some budget accommodation in Glasgow, so you should be able to find something that suits your budget and taste. However, do remember that “hostels” are not just for backpackers, they are a budget accommodation for anyone who needs to stay in a decent plan and meet other travelers. Even if the place has the word “backpacker” in its name, it doesn’t mean you have to be a backpacker to stay there.
If you do plan to save some money but the idea to stay in a dorm with 20 other travelers doesn’t suit you, remember that most hostels also offer private rooms. You’ll be paying slightly more (from Â£30 per night per person), but you’ll even have your own bathroom (in some cases). And don’t worry: you can socialize in the common room, watching TV or playing board games.
The hostels located closer to the main sights will be more expensive than those located further away. You’ll just need to figure out whether you’ll pay more for a room or pay to get to the sights. Some travelers prefer the quieter hotels, located close to parks and further from the city center.
