20/09/18Lovely little hostel. Definitly my first choice when coming to Aberdeen again.
13/09/18I had a very enjoyable week in a comfortable and clean room with a proper bed which was not a bunk. The staff were also friendly and helpful and I particularly enjoyed using the large kitchen where I not only cooked my chosen food but met several people from home and overseas. So impressed was I that I have another visit booked for early next year.

09/09/18I had a nice time staying at the Aberdeen Youth Hostel. It is located a bit out of town but it is not that far and just a nice walk from the town centre. The rooms are Really nice and the beds are comfy. There is a big kitchen with everything you need for a nice meal. The atmosphere in the hostel is lovely, lots of nice people around.
14/08/18Aberdeen has a kind of Cosmopolitan atmospere and collorful in its greynes.Also dont miss a daytrip to small city of Stonehaven, and take the walk to the castlearea. Its magnific panorama spots all over.
02/08/18Easy parking, 15 minutes walk to City, beautiful old building friendly staff. Ideal
05/07/18Will definitely keep this place in mind if traveling through Aberdeen again.
26/06/18Very easy to get to from city centre bus station using service X17Stagecoach.If wishing to visit areas of Aberdeenshire look out for Grasshopper Day Tickets to use on any bus
21/06/18We had a great stay. We arrived around 4-5pm with no reservation, the receptionist (Amelie?) was really helpful in getting us a room and checked in. The beds are super comfortable and the kitchen spacious and well equipped. I would definitely recommend this hostel.
30/05/18Good parking facilities and bike storage.
15/05/18The Aberdeen hostel was terrific. The rooms are spacious. The kitchen well set up. Staff is outstanding. I like the location, as it was easy to access via public transportation. A grocery store was right around the corner. Thank you for the lovely stay.
02/04/18Aberdeen Youth Hostel, is not in the centre of the city, but well served by regular buses with bus stops close by. I didn't cook a meal, but the kitchen was large and spacious. I returned to the hostel late evening and was able to sit comfortably in the lounge to watch a favourite TV programme and after that to surf the internet on my laptop. As I wasn't leaving Aberdeen until the afternoon, staff were happy to oblige with securely storing my rucksack.
26/03/18Amazing value for money, Queens drive is a top end area of Aberdeen. Pleasant walks nearby, only 15 minutes walk to the main street. Staff always friendly and helpful.
15/02/18Good clean Hostel with 15 minutes walking distance to the City centre...
04/12/17The place to stay in Aberdeen, great value and customer service. Clean rooms and amazing showers.
28/11/17I have travelled all over Europe staying in different hostels and this was probably the one with the best facilities by miles. The location is great, a scarce 10min from the centre but on Queens Road, a part of town that you wouldn't perhaps visit if you weren't there, but you would be definitely be missing out. overall 9/10.
25/11/17nice and safe area to walk in, and it's not far to main areas. still a welcoming building to stay in. like the recent upgrade, excellant!
22/11/17I was there of season so there wasn't many people around to chat with, but the staff were amazing, they know a lot about the city and its history, don't hesitate to ask them. The facilities were on point, among the best I've seen.
17/11/17Easy to reach by bus or 25min walk into bus train centre
17/10/17Staff, Tom in particular, was extremely helpful and knowledgeable about the area. Well done. 10 out of 10 !!!!!
15/09/17very helpful staff
08/09/17Excellent place to stay. Actually alot better than some of the hotels I have stopped in over the years.
14/08/17A very comfortable private room, in a tranquil place and elegant West End side, not far from Union Street, a rich choice of restaurants, pubs and cafes nearby. Pleasant furniture and colors, excellent bed and shower.
11/08/17Nice friendly hostel in quiet upmarket area close to city centre.Recently renovated so the rooms are fresh and clean.Staff are friendly and welcoming.Also the kitchen is large and modern with everthing required for self catering. Bus stop immediately outside but pleasant walk downtown. I highly recommend this place. Ps if as a couple using Light bus company buy a 'group day pass' even cheaper bargain at 6 quid.
26/07/17Very good hostel undergoing refurbishment
20/07/17Great staff, lovely building, great location. It will be even better once the refurbishments are completed, and wifi is available again. I'll be back.
19/07/17This is a superb facility. We were treated like royalty. The renovation is terrific! We ate dinner right across the street. Excellent menu. We had vegetarian, and the portions and taste was beyond expectations. All around, no issues, no complaints. I would highly recommend this hostel to anyone.
18/07/17Only stayed one night, but had a pleasant stay. It is about 30min walk from train/bus station, but a pleasant walking and easy to find. Also, lots of buses run along that road.
24/06/17The hostel is not far of to Aberdeen City Centre, only 10 to 15 minutes by bus. The surrounding community is also nice and calm. The hostel staff and resident there was polite and friendly. Further, the hostel has a spacious kitchen with plenty of cooking utensils, which allows resident to prepare their meals without any problem at all.
Reasons to visit
Aberdeen is often overlooked for the beauty of the Highlands or the bright lights and glamour of Edinburgh or Glasgow, but what many don't realise is that Aberdeen and the surrounding area possess many of the attributes that people love about Scotland - breathtaking scenery, mouth-watering food and drink, rich history and distinctive culture.
From the cobbled streets and historic university buildings in the north of the city to the quaint fishing quarter of Footdee to the east, the city of Aberdeen has something for everyone.
The newly launched North East 250 is driving route that takes you through Speyside, the Cairngorms, Royal Deeside, the East Coast and the Moray Firth Coast and looks set to emulate the success of the hugely popular North Coast 500.
Scotland's Castle Trail is a must when staying at the hostel, with around 300 castles. stately homes and ruins dotting the Aberdeenshire landscape.
No trip to Aberdeen is complete without a comforting dram or a pint of craft beer. Aberdeen is home to the UK's first BrewDog pub, not far from where the company began in Fraserburgh, and the wider Aberdeenshire region is home to a number of distilleries, so there are plenty of opportunities to sample Scotland's national drink.
