Always great. Staff are so helpful.
Great staff, second time I've been, would certainly go again.
Very nice clean room, well located - we would definitely come back!
I liked so much the Aberdeen Youth Hostel. I stayed in a shared room with a very nice German girl. I loved because the comfortable is like my own house. Thank you for the reception!!!
Really helpful place to stay. I was left a bit stranded and needed a place to stay at very short notice. The lady who answered the phone/greeted me at the desk was very helpful. Place was clean and comfortable. Would recommend and will definitely keep this place in mind if traveling through Aberdeen again.
Great place to stay, central location, friendly staff, everything clean and well organised.
Single room better than most hotels. Very well equipped and superb shower. Very easy to get to from city centre bus station using service X17 Stagecoach. If wishing to visit areas of Aberdeenshire look out for Grasshopper Day Tickets to use on any bus.
Aberdeen 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.
I was there off season, so there weren't many people around to chat with, but the staff were amazing. They know a lot about the city and its history, so don't hesitate to ask them. The facilities were on point, among the best I have seen.
Nice and safe area to walk in, and it's not far from the main areas. Still a welcoming building to stay in. I like the recent upgrade - excellent!

I 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 10 minutes from the centre. It's on Queen's Road, a part of town that you wouldn't perhaps visit if you weren't there, but you would definitely be missing out. Overall 9/10.
Good clean hostel with a 15 minute walking distance to the city centre...
The place to stay in Aberdeen, great value and customer service. Clean rooms and amazing showers.
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.
