We stayed here because it was the cheapest place in town and we were on a tight budget, but I would recommend trying to find a deal at another hotel if you can (easy to do on the weekend). This place was ridiculously expensive for a hostel and the quality did not match the price. We paid 90USD for two... More

This hostel charged me and my friends 25 pounds per night without: breakfast, WI-FI (that they said it was "temporary" offline) and with ONE SOCKET in a 14 bed room! Additionally, the bathrooms where beyond dirty and the entire hostel smelled very bad! Awful experience even if it was only for 1 night. My advice: Pay more money and search... More

As others have observed, this hostel is quite pricey for th quality provided. Th provision of one shower and one toilet between three or so rooms seemed illogical and the infrequent cleaners presence in the bathroom was noticed. Went a few days without paper towel and a pad wrapper Sat on th floor for more than a day. You need... More

I have stayed at this hostel 4+ times over the past month and it has been a good experience. I have always had a shared room and no problems at all, I met some lovely people. The rooms & linen are perfectly clean and the shared bathrooms are cleaned every day. There was even a good shower with ample hot... More

We stayed here two nights. The kitchen (like a commercial kitchen!) with plenty of shelves to store your food, lounge and TV room were clean and tidy and spacious. In a room with 7 beds, the first night there was only 2 of us, so got a good night's sleep. Showers and bathrooms are clean and hot water - didn't... More

Whether you are on holiday or on business this is an excellent place to stay and, unlike pretty much anywhere in a 50 mile radius, affordable! I mostly stayed in a single room - and on more than one occasion, to my sheer delight, had my own en-suite toilet and shower. 20 minutes walk takes you to the heart of... More

Hotel prices in Aberdeen are crazy expensive. The youth hostel is the only place in the city where you get really good value for money. I recommend paying a little extra for a private room, which is modern and clean. Sound proofing could be better, but its location is good (20 min walk to Union Street) and the facilities are... More

Upon arriving at the Aberdeen Youth Hostel I was met with an aesthetically pleasing exterior. The receptionist paid little attention but eventually I was able to check in. My room was clean and tidy, but unfortunately there was only one power point between 5 people. At this point I decided to evacuate my bowels. To my dismay the one toilet... More

The hostel is situated in a nice old Aberdeen house. But that's pretty much all there is to say for it. Do not expect any kind of luxury or beyond-basic amnesties. I stayed there for two transit nights during a trip to Scotland and picked the hostel because it was the cheapest option at the time of booking. It reminded... More
