With the kitchen and common room combined, it could sometimes be crowded if several guests were cooking at the same time. Toilet and shower in each room was a great advantage. The breakfast included in the price was an added bonus. The receptionist was very friendly and helpful.

Very basic hostel. Probably good for NC500, near beach (2 min) and rail station (5 min). Common room is lacking, stuffed with chairs, but having toilet and shower in each room was nice. Some weird smells in places

Bathroom was very mouldy and had flies in it. Mattresses were stained. When we said we were not staying to the male member of staff he didn't care and said "suit yourselves".

Sandra's is probably your best option when staying in Thurso as it's a small town and only has two or three backpackers. It's conveniently located in the centre of town so everything is easy to access. Rooms are fairly basic with multiple beds and an ensuite. They could definitely include locked storage for people staying and improve the ventilation in the bathrooms. The owner is also rarely at the reception so be prepared when arriving that you may need to call him so he can check you in.
