    Perfect for the price. Two of us stayed in our own room with en suite facilities. Very clean, comfortable, safe and shower and toilet worked. Plenty food available to make up our own breakfasts. It’s a good hostel and I would recommend it for a cheap stay.

    A very friendly welcome, but en suite could have been better equipped with a bath mat, and the bunk beds were a bit unsteady! Otherwise it was perfect for our needs and good value.

    The water coming out of the taps was yellow when you first turn them on and there was no hot water in the mornings, but if you are travelling to surf at Thurso East then this is in the ideal location!

    Great place to stay when in Thurso. This was my second time staying and can’t complain for the price and location. Had everything I needed and check in was relatively easy.

    Good location for exploring the northern coast. Recommend a local map to locate bus stops for John O Groats, Wick and Inverness. Care needed on the exterior steel stairs to many of the dorms as these stairs can be very slippery after rain (or worse if icy). Good self serve breakfast and availability of cooking utensils etc. Some door locks need care, or it is easy to leave them unlocked and possible security issues.

    the bedroom we stayed in was reasonably clean although some dusting and cleaning surfaces wouldn't go amiss. The kitchen smelled like a typical student accomodation and although I expected basic facilities would have been happier if at some point a thorough clean had taken place. Outside area had litter lying all around and area for laundry was again sad and neglected looking. Good enough value for money but don't expect extreme cleanliness!!

    The vibe there was a little sketchy - I worried about leaving my teenage sons alone anywhere on the premises. It was also very loud very late at night, with people drinking and smoking on all of the balconies and outdoor spaces. We didn’t have towels and every time I checked the front desk to ask, no one was there. It was clean enough, but seemed a little run down. The breakfast left much to be desired.
