I stay here on a weekly basis due to work commitments. I always feel welcome by the staff and do not really have any complaint. I have been upgraded to bigger rooms during the quieter season but overall it has everything you need and is good for those on a budget. The hostel has a kitchen with cooking equipment, that...

I came to Dundee to spend a year. After looking for different accommodation options I decided to stay here for the whole term. The hostel's located in the very city heart, though in 3 min walk to TESCO Extra and 30 sec walk to McDonalds and KFC. The staff is remarkably friendly, the rooms are small and cozy, large kitchen...

Firstly the staff were friendly and full of local knowledge which was so helpful for a first timer to Scotland! I stayed 2 nights in a single room which was toasty warm and had all of the basics like a comfortable bed with plenty of bedding, lamp, alarm clock, ample power points and very good security. The shower/toilet is shared... More

Stayed for 3 nights. Been to lots of hostels around the world and this rates highly. Ideally located in a building with historical character. Very good bunch of staff. A special mention for François and Christian for putting up with a tempremental Glaswegian. Keep up the good work guys. Charles. Glasgow.

Never been in a hostel before but was pleasantly surprised and would definately visit again. Hostel is situated right in the heart of the town centre so was in an ideal location...only a few minutes walk from shops,bars,pubs,clubs etc and about 10 mins walk from the train station. We booked a double en-suite room for 2 nights over the weekend... More

Really nice hostel with nice personnel. In the middle of the city centre, close to the shopping centre and the Tesco. Spacious rooms with nice beds. Hostel gets cleaned everyday. Big games room available and the WiFi is great as well.

This place is amazing! The staff is very friendly and the location is the best! In the city centre near lots of shops and Tesco! I was travelling with a friend and we stayed in a twin room. The room was very spacious and clean. Love it! Definitely, if I go back to Dundee I will stay here! ;)
