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

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! ;)

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
