About About this youth hostel

Advice on Covid-19 is constantly changing and may differ across the UK. In Scotland the wearing of facemasks remains a legal requirement in indoor settings and we would ask all guests to please respect this.

The health, safety and wellbeing of our guests, employees and the communities in which we operate remains our main priority at this time. For more information on what to expect when staying with us please visit the FAQ's section of this website.

Please continue to refer to Scottish Government guidelines and Transport Scotland advice on travel and social distancing when making your booking.   

This four star VisitScotland accredited youth hostel is located in the desirable west end of Aberdeen with excellent transport links to the city centre. Refurbished in 2018 and highly commended by VisitScotland, it’s an ideal choice for leisure and business travellers alike.

The hostel offers guests comfortable private en-suite rooms as well as spacious shared accommodation for those exploring the city on a budget. Guests can opt for a continental breakfast, served daily in our café (please remember to pre-book), or choose to prepare their own food in our well-equipped self-catering kitchen. The café also serves hot and cold drinks and a selection of confectionery and muffins throughout the day. 

Relax in the large, bright, bay-windowed lounge, which has a wood-effect stove and wall-mounted television; or in the comfortable quiet room if you’re just looking to chill, chat or read up about Aberdeen’s must-see locations. Other facilities include free WiFi, excellent laundry and drying facilities, secure bike storage and free car parking to the rear of the building.

The hostel also offers meeting facilities for up to 50 with flexible catering packages available; ideal for groups and organisations looking for meeting space close to central Aberdeen.

Our quieter location is a pleasant 20 minute walk along a tree-lined road to Union Street - or hop on the number 11 bus for a short journey to the city centre.

The hostel is also available for exclusive private rental.

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.
