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! ;)

We stayed here for three nights and was very pleased.The hostel is located right in the centre of Dundee within walking distance of the train station. It's housed in several old houses - the oldest in Dundee and with lots of character and atmosphere. it's a real treat if you like old buildings. We had a double en -suite room... More

The room was beyond what I could have hoped for. It was large, and had two (not in use) fire places, a desk (n) chair and arm-chair for reading. All for £25pn... Did I mention it was en-suite? I would have liked to have stayed there longer, the bed was raised in a little nook in the room. There was... More

only stayed here for 2 nights but found nothing wrong with the place, inside it was a typical hostel, value for money and great location. the beds where a bit uncomfy but what can you expect sleeping in a bunk bed over all i would use this service again

Great location, right in the middle of Dundee, walking distance from the coach station, train station, shopping centre and University. Friendly staff, good room, very interesting old building, good value, clean toilet and shower. Just one minor thing: the carpet in the private room I booked could have used a better cleaning as it was quite dusty and there were... More

I read the reviews on how difficult it can be to find the place. It is easy to get to the High Street from the train station. You just need to walk uphill on Union Street. I used the SatNav on my phone and it told me that I have reached the hostel. I looked around and there was no... More

I had a private room - the room was larger than I expected. The bed was comfy, there was a chest of drawers and plenty if space to store my belongings. The kitchen is large and well-equipped, the lounge is very comfortable and there are a couple of reading rooms. I didn't use the games room. So in summary this... More

The hostel is really good value for money - I had a private room and it was small but clean and had everything I needed, comfy bed, drawers, chair and a lamp. Brilliant location opposite the Caird Hall. I didn't use the games room but it was huge and looked good. Wifi only available in there. Reading room on the... More

Centrally located but don't expect vehicle accessibility right to the door step. Like what others commented one need an eagle eyes to locate the signage of this hostel. As lift does not cover all the floors expect to walk up the medieval steps. I like the locality and the cleanliness of this hostel. When we were there we find the... More

We booked a double, ensuite room for the night last weekend as we were heading to Dundee for a party. All of the hotels were very expensive so we opted for the hostel. It was absolutely perfect for our needs. The room and ensuite was clean and modern and the location, right on the high street, was great! Would recommend... More
