Trying to remember the name and/or location of a men's hostel that lay someplace between Parkhead and the city centre. My mum can remember walking past it as a child and seeing lots of men gathered on the steps outside. Any ideas?

There was a couple of council ones at the back of the barras.
One was called william booth house.
Great breakfast. stayed in there many a time.

The old salvation army one was called hope house.

Ask and ye shall receive! Cheers guys, mum reckons (after a quick shifty at Street View) that it might be the Bellgrove Hotel but there may have been another building with steps nearby where the men sat. Hard to tell when everything around it has been demolished...then again, what hasn't been sad.gif

If your Ma can remember it as a child, it probably wasn`t James Duncan House in Bell St. One block west of Morrisons (Gallowgate), and right behind the fire station/block with Phoenix Bar on one end and Hoops Bar on the other.

When built thirty year ago, fire station wasn`t there, so more visible from Gallowgate. Went under the wrecking ball lately. Might find clip on Youtube. Might jog her memory.
