Stayed in a lot of hostels and this one makes the top 3 list :)


Staff attitude could have been better.


Great little hostel with super friendly staff. No lockers in rooms, but nice place and free wifi.


Our room had a smell of mildew/mold. There was no fan in the room to circulate air and we didn't feel comfortable leaving the windows open as we were on the first floor facing an alley behind a pub. Decent service, but I would not stay there again.

My stay at Montrose was short and sweet. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful! I loved the big lounge area with plenty of chairs, tables, and wi-fi.


Excellent massive kitchens and TV lounge.


Lovely place here, very helpful staff.
