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.

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.

Nice classic house. The place is in a quiet residential area, not far from downtown.

We missed that there were no hooks on the walls where we could hang up our clothes etc. There was only one bedlight. It was positive that there were USB-charging connections. The breakfast was OK, but we missed that there was no natural yoghurt. Breakfast was normally served from 07:30, but as we needed breakfast 07:00 one morning the staff arranged it for us!

The draining of sink wasn't great, but workable.
