When I arrived I was greeted by the receptionist who was very pleasant, she checked me in and told me that I'd be staying across the road in what used to be "The Grinder Centre" according to the name on the building. On first appearances the building appears abandoned but it is actually inhabited by the guests of the hostel. The room was horrible, it had dirty floors and the ceiling had clearly leaked at some point and the wallpaper was falling off etc. The bed itself was fine yes it squeaked but it was clean and I had earplugs.
Having recently paid £9 for a bed in a hostel in London in a hostel far superior I don't buy Todd's excuse that you get what you pay for! The toilet facilities were average and the same for the shower facilities. Nobody appeared to use the hot tub which was outside under a gazebo and with the glaswegian weather I can imagine why. The computers by his own admission are virus ridden, so I wouldn't recommend using them! He yells and complains at the guests who are using their computers in the lobby area etc. Me and 2 girls went to a local pub to socialise rather than hang around in the dirty room and lobby area.
In summary you get the impression that you're inconveniencing Todd by coming to his hostel, the only reason I stayed here was because I needed somewhere to sleep temporarily. I would avoid this place like the plague and recommend staying with friends or family if this is all that's on offer!
