Important Information

SYHA is a charity aiming to inspire all, especially young people, to broaden their horizons, gain knowledge and independence through new experiences of adventure and discovery. In support of this aim, all bookings will include a temporary membership fee per person per night which is displayed as an inclusive rate. (Full, existing members of SYHA and HI using this booking engine are not entitled to a membership refund).

Glasgow Youth Hostel reception is open 24 hours, with check-in from 15.00 and checkout by 10.00. You’re welcome to arrive at any time and use our facilities whether arriving early or departing late.

From the age of 5 to 15 years, young people must be accompanied by a parent or guardian and may be accommodated in a single-gendered shared room with the parent or guardian and other guests, at the discretion and responsibility of the parent or guardian. The young person/people, the parent/guardian and the other occupants of the room must be of the same gender.

SYHA advise that additional notice be given to the destination youth hostel when travelling with children, to ensure that suitable accommodation is available. Contact details can be found on your booking confirmation.

Parties with young children (under 5 years) will only be accommodated in designated family rooms, where available. There is no capacity for extra beds or cots in a shared dormitory or private accommodation.

When booking for more than 9 people:
• Full prepayment is required within 8 weeks of arrival as otherwise the booking will automatically be cancelled
• The following cancellation charges will apply to the entire booking:
57 days or more - 20% of total cost

Liked: It was clean, felt safe. The wifi was good when you sat in the main lounge. The location was nice as it sat right above a beautiful park.

Disliked: The wifi did not work in the rooms at all. Also as I was placed in the basement my 4g phone internet wouldn't work either. Staff kept to themselves mainly. Not rude, but not super friendly either.
