Centrally located, the Dundee Backpackers boasts the pedestrianised centre, with numerous shops, restaurants, pubs and clubs, right on its doorstep. Within walking distance you can visit popular attractions such as Discovery Point, Dundee Contemporary Arts Centre, McManus Galleries, and soon the new V&A Design Museum. Furthermore, the bus and train stations are both within a 5-minute walk of the hostel.

Each building reflects the style and character of the time in which it was built. There are feature fireplaces, plaster cornices and even a little ‘museum’ full of information and artefacts from the buildings' history. Due to the historic nature of our buildings, we do not have any elevators or disabled access. There are lots of stairs, and no rooms available on the ground floor.

    Superb

    This is the best hostel I’ve stayed in, and I’ve used hostels for years. Set right in the middle of the city centre it couldn’t be more handy. The dorms and facilities are fantastic and very clean. However I was lucky enough to get one of their private single ensuite rooms. The bed was made up for me and 2 towels were included at £27 for 3* hotel standard it’s great value (big enough for 2) Building is 16th century and has been renovated beautifully. Original features kept where poss. Go see!!
