I quite liked the person that I can only describe as the owners pet, whom I did affectionately nickname Gandolf
I recently stayed in the Alba Hostel, Glasgow and would like to leave some feedback.
inexpensive, clean, nice bathrooms, staff are very kind and accommodating, free WIFI, train station near hostel
need to state what kind of dorms when you're booking (e.g. mixed, females only, etc.). Front entrance is alway locked and no entry available from outside - should provide an alternative entrance or a ringer instead of posting a phone number to call (what if traveller did not have a phone, battery died, long distance charges,etc).
Kind and courteous staff. free wifi. complete kitchen facilities.
I got lost because the published address (fifth avenue, north west glasgow) was unknown to bus drivers and even to the information staff at the bus terminal.
The staff was wonderful and made us feel at home. The hostel was comfortable and a great deal.
