I arrived at this hostel due to covid 19 and the owner really saved my ass...I was put in a very hard situation but yet he took me in and saved my behind...Mauro is a lovely guy and he goes above and behond to make people feel welcome...if I’m being honest himself? the owner and Stuart and Sandra are four very decent people and the world would be a much better place with more people like this...I can not rate this hostel highly enough X

Had a wonderful time exploring Glasgow. Stayed here as a volunteer then as a guest, I'm allways amazed by the hospitality and vivaciousness of Mauro, also the owner has a genuine interest in people. Very relaxed and family friendly vibe at Alba.

I stayed here for just over a week and was surprised at how welcomed and homely the place felt. Mauro the man who runs things was a perfect gentleman and made sure everything was spot on. I’ll be coming back for sure. Thanks guys

Mauro is an amazing host and always makes me feel so welcome and he's very patient with me when I'm in a rush too (sorry). Hostel is clean, great value and is now my regular spot to stay in when I visit Anniesland. Definitely recommended. Great transport links too, right by the train station.

I've been in countless hostels around Europe and this is by far one of the best I've ever stayed in. The atmosphere is so wonderful, lovely and I always felt safe as a woman - the owner is so so so kind and friendly and the beds are so comfortable. I can't recommend this enough.
