Liked: Staff helpful and cheery. Bunks. Need individual reading lights. Bunks hazardous. Ladder is vertical- safer to angle. Rungs are too narrow for adult foot. Width inappropriate for adult figure. Difficult to make top bunk bed due to height of top bar. In all,

Disliked: Noise. No way to close doors quietly, especially bedroom doors. Suggest pads on doors. Seating in lounge is too low, too soft and in sore need of repair. Has been since my stay two years ago. Internet needs to be part of the service.

Liked: It is very clean and has multiple locks to get in. I felt very safe and didn't worry about my things. Staff are helpful and friendly.

Disliked: There was no free breakfast and no free Wifi. Even if you are a member you have to pay for the Wifi and it is very expensive. Access to internet is nowadays one of the basic needs for travelers because everything has to be booked in advance and to force people who aren't on the whelthy side of life to pay for every little thing is a discrace.

Liked: The hostel is in a nice location, the facilities are clean & ample. Most of other travelling people pleasant enough. Although no lockable facilities no food was touched, nor was any personal belongings left in room. Good value for your money as Aberdeen is expensive.

Disliked: Only 1 of the 4 showers actually work, so be quick. Also only 1 socket in room for charging equipment, again be quick!

Liked: Not too expensive but not that cheap either. Pretty good location, only about a 15-20min walk from town center. Helpful staff.

Disliked: Looked a little shabby but beddings and the toilet were clean and everything worked at least. Only one wall socket in a dorm for 5 people so you couldn't charge your phone that often.

Liked: The location is perfect as it is very close to the centre of town but just far enough away to be quite quiet and handy for getting out of the city easily.

Disliked: The bunks were cheap (I was woken every time the person above me moved and it squeaked all the time). The mattresses were thin, one thin pillow was provided and the duvet was very narrow.
