The hostel was good value, a little too far to walk to anything in town. The wifi was patchy and dropped out regularly which made it difficult to stay in contact with home. The people were very friendly and helpful.

Enjoyed our stay. Good to be close to many shops and sites and restaurants. Thanks!!


Staff were very helpful and had great facilities. Although there is no eating or drinking in the lounge room.


Cancelled reservation because the only room was on the fourth floor with no lift and I am disabled.


This hostel was very hard to find! Signage very small and can't see from main road. Internet had problems connecting in the only room it worked in which was the TV lounge. Very annoying! Room was fine but window was broken didn't open and roommate had belongings all over room, not considerate at all. Showers weren't secure no door or lock and toilets had funny smell. Overall not a good experience.


The hostel was very far away from the town center and was very expensive.


It was impossible to connect to WiFi. The rooms were overpriced, and it was quite far from everything.


Having never stayed in a hostel before I was rather skeptical of how it was going to be. However I was extremely pleased with Aberdeen Youth Hostel, the lady on reception was extremely friendly towards me, there were a number of great social spaces where people would gather to chat and cook their meals in the big kitchen. Generally an all round great atmosphere. Sadly I was only in Aberdeen for one night but I'd definitely stay again when I return. Great place for a great price in Aberdeen!

A great kitchen. Nice size. All utensils you need.


Tough to locate but great quiet area of Aberdeen and walking distance to restaurants and shops.
