Police Scotland is investigating the second sudden death at a Dundee city centre hostel in a matter of days.
Emergency crews attended Soapwork Lane following the death of a woman.
She has been named locally as Stephanie Fraser, 25, who is understood to have moved into the centre on Tuesday night and was found dead on Wednesday morning.
A spokesman for Police Scotland confirmed that a 25-year-old woman had died at the hostel.
Fellow hostel resident Wayne Butchart, 37, said he was shocked by both deaths.
He said: “I knew Steph very well. She had only moved into the centre the night before – it’s tragic. This is certainly no place for a lassie to die.”
The hostel provides rooms to support some of the most vulnerable people in Dundee, including rough sleepers and people with addictions.
Mr Butchart added: “The staff are brilliant but there is only so much they can do.”
The latest incident follows the sudden death of a 35-year-old man at the hostel on Sunday afternoon.
A witness of Sunday’s incident reported seeing a number of emergency vehicles, including two police vehicles and an ambulance.
The hostel is managed by housing support group Transform, which has not commented on either death.
A Police Scotland spokeswoman said: “Officers attended at an address on Soapwork Lane at 5.50am on Wednesday following the sudden death of a 25-year-old woman.
“The death is being treated as unexplained and a report will be submitted to the procurator fiscal in due course.”
A Scottish Ambulance Service spokesman said: “We received a call at 5.46am on August 1 to an incident on Soapwork Lane.
“We dispatched one ambulance to the scene.”
