This was our first experience of a youth hostel and we were delighted at what we found. We had an en-suite room and found it most acceptable. We are likely to use this place again as it is low priced and fits the bill for exactly what we need, i.e. a clean, well kept budget room.

We were pleasantly surprised with our 2 night stay in Aberdeen youth hostel. We had a private room with a sink. Showers and toilet facilities were just next to the room and always clean. There was very little noise during the night, my only complaint was that the room was a little too hot. We took advantage of the free...

My boyfriend and I stayed at their Double private room for 1 night in this hostel while we're backpacking. The location was okay, not super close to the city centre, yet not super inconvenient to get to. It was right outside a bus route to/from the train station (takes about 10 minutes). Staff was nice, didn't really have much interaction...

I stayed here for 7 nights, in a private single room. The location is excellent and not particularly loud, however the walls are paper thin and you can hear people even having a quiet conversation next door. Room did not have the heater left on when I arrived back that night so was freezing (this is Aberdeen guys, not Spain!)...

I booked and got a room to myself. There was plenty of space for my stuff, an armchair and bedside table, lamp and rail to hang clothes. However, I was disappointed with a number of things: uncomfortable mattress that gave me backache after 2 nights; also that there was only one double socket, hidden behind my bed. The room was...

A great hostel with all the expected amenities providing a comfortable night's sleep in cosy rooms away from Aberdeen's quite cold and windy climate. It's slightly out of the centre which is not a bad thing

My hire car GPS had difficulty in finding this place. However once there it was comfortable and clean. It was also quite secure. I arrived late and had to leave early and was quite comfortable for the time I was there. It is expensive but much less so than other accommodation in the area. Massive kitchen, so ideal for those...

I stayed in the twin room for one night. The hostel is clean and the staff are helpful. The heating was turned off so I asked reception to turn it on but they said it was not working, so they provided us with a couple of brand new duvets. The twin room is nicely decorated and comes with towels. The...

We only spent one night at this hostel. Good position (15 min on foot from the city centre), free car park, free internet connection in the hall, good breakfast considering the price (£ 3,85 pp). Clean room with bunkbeds: the only window couldn't be opened and 3 of the 4 sockets didn't work. We didn't try the showers, but toilets...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our great value hostel is set in a historic building packed full of character, and has good facilities including family rooms. Aberdeen is a beautiful city, with easy access to the countryside, fishing, golf and pony trekking. City based attractions include cinema, concerts and the arts. Wi-Fi during your stay: We do our best to deliver a free Wi-Fi service but apologise that connectivity, particularly in our rural locations, can be intermittent due to the level of our current broadband provision along with high usage when the youth hostel is busy. Please be assured we are endeavouring to improve where we can. We thank you for your patience and understanding. ... more   less
