    Fantastic location right in the centre of Dundee and a lovely old building. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Loads of common areas throughout the building and info about the history of the building and Dundee. Twin room with bathroom was clean, spacious & comfortable and the shower was perfect. Will definitely stay again.

    What a wonderful place - literally a medieval hotel with its of community rooms and rambling hallways and stone steps that guests have been climbing and descending for centuries. My room had its own bath and a cozy bed nook, chair and desk. I only wish WiFi extended to the guest rooms as well as it does to the common rooms.

    Friendly hostel in outstanding location right in centre. Several spacious communal areas including games room with two tuned, fully strung guitars! Bike storage is a little makeshift anf only semi-covered but was secure and convenient - a bonus in Dundee, where public bike parking is almost nonexistent!

    I was travelling around Scotland for 10 days and booked this lovley hostel. What a charming place. I will definitely be back here. Staff were so nice, extremly helpul we had a good natter, she directed to food places and was so welcoming. This is an old buiding, the spiral staircase was a bit narrow so just as well I didnt have much more than two bags. This Hostel was amazing. The room was clean and the bed was so soft. Plenty of facilities such as a kitchen ,common room and reading room.

    Was a great place to stay, very clean and an amazing location in town. There wasn't too people staying there so it was fairly quiet so top tip would be to hang out the kitchen if you wanted to meet some new people. Everyone was very friendly nonetheless.
