Rude Staff and dirty tired hostel with cheap second hand furniture.

by Gearóid J on 08 Jan 2017 (Business Traveller)

I stayed at this hostel for three nights. The check-in assistant manager a Polish guy called Piotr was miserable and rude and looked like he wanted to be elsewhere. The initial room was very nice with an on suite bathroom except the lightbulb i the bathroom was not working. I politely asked Piotr if he could replace this but he did nothing. Then on my third day I was moved to box room with no bathroom without warning. At 5am in the morning the fire alarms were activated by a staff member with ...

My friend and I just wanted a wee night out in Dundee and came across this as a great cheap option to stay. The staff on reception were very welcoming and directed us to our room.

We didn't book a breakfast but there was a macDonald's round the corner for a macmuffin. Lots of steps up to our room, at the top of the place.

That guy at the reception was CRAZY RUDE. I asked to see the room (50 quid a night) and He said to me that "They don't show the rooms before you pay" I've travelled in 5 continents and 56 countries...NEVER HEARD AN ANSWER LIKE THAT FROM AN HOSTEL. We arrived 25 minutes before the check in and he had us wait... No WIfi in the rooms and only in ONE common room No towels Bathroom filled with mold Bad value for money
