About About this youth hostel

Aberdeen is a 4 star hostel in the desirable west end of Aberdeen. Refurbished in 2018 and highly commended by VisitScotland, it’s an ideal choice for leisure and business travellers alike.

The hostel offers hotel-like standard private en-suite rooms as well as spacious shared accommodation with private lockers for those on a budget and exploring Scotland. Guests can choose to use the self-catering kitchen and dining room, or opt for our in-house continental breakfast, served daily in the café which also offers light bites, snacks, refreshments and hot & cold beverages throughout the day.

For all guests there’s a large, bay windowed lounge with ample seating, a wood effect burning stove and television. There’s an additional quiet room for those looking to relax, chat or read up about Aberdeen’s must-see locations. A meeting room is also available. Guest laundry and drying facilities are excellent.

Bike storage is available for longer stay guests or those travelling onwards and on-site parking is free. Our quieter location is a pleasant 20 minute walk along a tree-lined street to Union Street or hop on the number 11 bus which takes less than 10 minutes to the city centre.

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.
