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! ;)

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

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
