Many reviews I read prior to booking were not favorable. However, our experience was pleasant. Price wise, can't beat it for this wildly overpriced city. Forget B&B's.....these are pretty well reserved for oil workers or other such out of town guests who stay for weeks rather than just a day or two.(I was told this by a B&B owner, who... More

I stayed overnight at this hostel for one night because it was the cheapest accommodation in Aberdeen. The hostel is located a least 20-30 minutes walking from rail station and has nothing but office buildings nearby. The room and facilities are standard for a hostel. Iwas there for a night and did not use any facilities, apart from toilet and... More

I visited in October 2014, as l live in Newcastle and wanted to travel to Aberdeen, knew it would be too much to do in a day. It was a fair way out of the city and roundabout the hostel there was literally nothing bar legal practices and offshore industry firms. I also knew the hostel would be cheap and... More

The hostel is quite far from the city center, which can be quite exhausting and you've got to get there from the station wit all your luggage. But you can take a bus, and it is obviously easier. But the fares of buses in Aberdeen is quite expensive I think... The hostel in itself is not extraordinary but, it's a... More

The venue is spacious and all of the staff are warm and welcoming The kitchen area is a great size and same for the dinning area The small quiet area was nice and relaxing The only down side is the pillows in the rooms and the beds squeaky

The Youth hostel was good and organised. The entrance is organised with leaflets and spacious and neat and the reception was fine. We got our key cards for our rooms and got explanation how to get to our room. Shower rooms and toilets were clean and there is free soap to wash your hands. The people staying in the week... More

The hostel has some good features: well-fitted, huge kitchen and eating area, small but comfy common room. However, the rooms are really narrow. You have to pay for the wi-fi. Actually, you have to pay for every extra, even though the price for a night is already expensive. But this isthe cheaper hostel around, so you don't really have any... More

As many other people have noted this hostel's cost is extortionate but it appears that the entire Aberdeen hotel industry have reached a joint agreement to charge crazy prices and the result is that, while obviously terrible value for the quality, SYHA Aberdeen is indeed the least expensive bed in town. Location is in in the middle of an extensive... More

Used more by Employed clientele, and some others seeking work coming from all over the World; the Hostel itself reminded me of the travellers Hostels I stayed in Amsterdam and London many years ago. The Hostel is set in a very upmarket street, the main entrance into the building reflects the rest of the interior, clean but drab and very... More

This hostel is in a great location, it's very clean and comfortable. The staff are very friendly and helpful, and the atmosphere is lovely! There is a nice big kitchen, dining and lounge areas too! The only thing I can say against this place is that wifi was not free for guests, you do need to pay extra
