Welcome to our hostel

This 4 star youth hostel offers guests a range of shared accommodation and private rooms, some with en-suites. Facilities include a contemporary living space with TV and wood burning stove, a large self-catering kitchen and modern dining area.

Aberdeen has something for everyone, with its striking granite architecture and a rich and inspiring history. The city centre is packed with cafes, restaurants, bars and nightlife. The Maritime Museum, St Machar's Cathedral, The Stratosphere and Aberdeen Art Gallery are worth a visit for those interested in the history and culture of the Granite City, whilst the more adventurous can take to the waves, on a boat trip to visit the dolphins that skirt the fringes of the busy harbour.

Families can enjoy Codonas Pleasure Fair down at the Esplanade, along with Aberdeen Beach and the Beach Ballroom. The surrounding area has a number of ‘must see’ attractions including the picturesque fishing village of Footdee and the impressive Dunnottar and Crathes castles to name but a few.

A great location for individuals, groups and families, Aberdeen Youth Hostel is within walking distance of the city centre, with regular buses stopping just outside the hostel.

Une seule machine à laver fonctionnelle pour l'ensemble des clients, cela entraine d'importants problèmes logistiques.

Belle demeure au style chic. Accueil attentionné, chambre calme et très confortable avec sanitaires intégrés. Un peu éloignée de la gare mais à moins de 10 mn en bus.
