Property Description

Newly renovated Aberdeen Youth Hostel is located in a quiet residential area on the west side of the Granite City, within walking distance of the city centre and its many attractions.

Aberdeen has a rich history and striking architecture with a lot to offer visitors. For the sociable traveller the city centre is packed with cafes, restaurants, bars and nightlife. If it’s history and culture you’re after, visit the Maritime Museum, St Machar's Cathedral, The Satrosphere Science Centre and Aberdeen Art Gallery. More adventurous? Take to the waves on a boat trip to watch the dolphins that skirt the fringes of the busy harbour. Families can enjoy Codona’s Pleasure Fair down at the Esplanade, and the beach is famous for its long, long curve of golden sand between the harbour and the mouth of the River Don.

Other attractions in the immediate area include the picturesque fishing village of Footdee. Or travel inland, where Braemar and beautiful Royal Deeside are easily accessible within an hour by car.

The 4-star youth hostel offers a range of shared accommodation and private rooms, some ensuite. New facilities include contemporary living space with TV and wood burning stove, a large self-catering kitchen and modern dining area.

Continental breakfast and packed lunches can be arranged on request. Laundry facilities and luggage storage are available and WiFi access is free. There’s a small amount of free private parking and bicycle storage. A bus stop 200m away provides regular services into the city centre.

    Superb

    Cleanest hostel on earth. Had a great stay. Plus the kitchen is so well equipped you could bake a cake (with you own ingredients). The front quiet room is just lovely. Loved this place. Dormant atmosphere though.

    Superb

    Could do with some form of cage or locker for personal belongings, but other than that I had no issues, the other guests were cool, the facilities were decent, nice big kitchen. Short walk to town, but it's really not far at all, would recommend.

    Fabulous

    Standard affair for a Youth Hostel. Not too many folks in the building that night so not much energy. Parking in back, just need to drive around the corner. Short walk to a grocery store. Very friendly staff that can help with anything you need.

    Very Good

    07 Sep 2018
    We recently stayed at this property for three nights. The facilities were well kept, clean and bright. The security was top notch- cards are recoded everyday. We stayed in a private room which had a very modern bath. The downside is the location- it is a 30 min walk from city center. We attempted to utilize the bus system, but found it frustrating as we noticed buses would often show up and leave from the stop early. (We missed one bus because we got to the stop at 11:06 for an 11:15)
