Supermarkt in wenigen Minuten zu Fuß zu erreichen hübsches Haus (von außen) Parkplätze vorhanden, wenn auch nicht all zu viele - kein Wassdruck und kein warmes Wasser vorhanden, weder am Abend noch in der Früh - Raumtemperatur in der Küche sehr kalt - wackelige Metallbetten - kaum Steckdosen im Zimmer - schlechtes Wifi - eher ungemütliche Atmosphäre

Wir waren schon in vielen britischen Hostels unterwegs und eigentlich immer sehr zufrieden - man erwartet ja kein 5-Sterne-Hotel! Aberdeen war scheußlich! Wir hatten ein privat room für 2 Erwachsene und 2 Kinder gebucht. Der Gestank war unerträglich. In dem Zimmer roch es, als hätten dort über Jahre schwer arbeitende, ungeduschte Männer gewohnt, ohne dass das Bettzeug einmal gewaschen worden wäre. Unter dem Bett fanden wir eine Regenhose, was verdeutlicht, wie ordentlich hier gesaugt worden war!

Hacía frío en las estancias, tanto comunes como en las habitaciones. La limpieza de las instalaciones era buena en general pero mi habitación solo fue limpiada un día de los cinco que estuve,.
