Set within 5 beautifully restored period buildings, one of which dating back to the 16th century, this unique hostel offers a selection of dormitories and private rooms on Dundee’s bustling High Street.
Centrally located, the Dundee Backpackers Hostel boasts the pedestrianised centre, with numerous shops, restaurants, museums, 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, Dundee Rep Theatre, Dundee Law, and the V&A Dundee 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 featured fireplaces, plaster cornices and windows of all shapes and sizes. All of the buildings even have their own little ‘museum’ full of information and artefacts from the buildings' history.
With an unbeatable location, friendly staff, comfortable beds and an international atmosphere, Dundee Backpackers Hostel is the best place to stay whilst in Dundee.
