I was there for one night with a friend, we had a private room, with an own bathroom. We are not a couple, so the double bed was kind of narrow, but we solved it. :) And for only one night it was fine. The room, and the bathromm were also clean and tidy. And yes, its a bit expensive,... More

It is the only hostel in Aberdeen, even being the cheapest way to sleep in the city it is expensive (£25) You must pay for wi-fi(!!) (£1 for 20 minuts!), for breakfast (in other hostels other cities you get at least some continental breakfast), for towels, for ear-caps...No lockers in the rooms, very difficult to find plugs. Cleanliness in average.... More

While I was well aware of the reviews I'd read before booking, it still surprised me, in a bad way. I'll start with the good things: 1) it's close to the center. 20 min to center of town, 30 to train/bus stations and a bus stop almost immediately at the doorstep. 2) quiet at night, quiet area too -all offices...

This is the only hostel in Aberdeen, so it's also the cheapest way to sleep in this city. That is the only good point. Even if it's the cheapest of Aberdeen, it's an expensive hostel (25 £), you must pay for wi-fi (!!), there are no lockers in the rooms, it's really difficult to find an electric plug in the... More

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

Dear guest, Thank you for your review of our Hostel. Our Dorm beds start at only £22 per person and offer a good value option in Aberdeen. As advertised WiFi is available but at a charge and we do not offer mixed dorms. If you want to share with a partner, private rooms are also available. Thank you 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
