    Inconsiderate people in the dorm, couldn't get much sleep. I know it's not the hostels fault but this seems to be common in hostels in the UK. There was no where I could lock my gear. And this score is comparing against other hostels around the world I've used on booking.com

    The hostel is in the centre of Dundee. Really clean and full of international friendly guests. I really liked the reading room, to have a quiet moment in the evening for myself.

    One night I came back and the stuff of someone else was on my bed and my stuff was on the floor (sheets and pijama). He probably came in with the lights out and did not see that the bed was already "booked". Maybe it is an idea to put signs on the beds that are occupied so that these misunderstandings can be avoided.

    What a tremendous place. Some rooms with private bathroom and even the shared bathrooms are kept to a high standard of cleanliness. Charming old building with character, friendly staff and great facilities. Also very central

    Right in busy city centre but peaceful inside. Use of well-stocked kitchen, fridges, and spacious dining room. Clean bedding, comfy wooden bunks and good shower facilities. Friendly and helpful staff. Own key card for front and room doors.

    Quite happy with everything.
