A Glasgow hostel has invested £750,000 in bespoke suites in the year in which ‘poshtels’ are predicted to become one of the most dynamic sectors of the UK hotel market.

Euro Hostel is developing eight self-contained suites in it's central Glasgow site as part of what it describes as the ‘inevitable evolution of super-budget accommodation’.

Available from £13 per night, each room will sleep between two and 20 guests and include private living and bathroom spaces. Ping-pong, pool tables and widescreen TV’s will be available in a selection of suites.

The newly refurbished level will be inaccessible to other guests in the 364-bed hostel and include a separate tropical terrace.

Bosses at Euro Hostel predict the suites will appeal to families and large groups on city breaks who prefer to stay in a private, self-contained space.

“Our idea is based on offering budget-friendly solutions to the awkward experiences of large travelling groups and families who struggle to find cheap options to ‘stay together’ during a trip away," said Rosanna Burns, Euro Hostel’s Glasgow manager.

"Parents will know only too well the struggles of squeezing into so-called family rooms in other hotels and the troubles that brings when it’s time for them to go to sleep.

“These suites are an inevitable evolution for Euro Hostel. We place huge emphasis on making city centre accommodation a fun and sociable experience and we’re really excited to see what our customers think when we have our first guests in the new suites next month.”

EuroHostel operates city centre hostels in Edinburgh and Newcastle and recently acquired the Hoax Hostel in Liverpool, which will be refurbished and rebranded later this year.
