Property Description

Situated in a prime central location, Sandra's Hostel has recently been refurbished to make it one of the most modern and comfortable in Scotland.

The hostel is centrally located in the town within easy reach of amenities such as pubs, takeaways, restaurants, the nightclub, shops, gardens and more. It is also within short walking distance of both the sea-front and Thurso River. There are a wide variety of activities on offer as well as some stunning locations.

Run by experienced backpackers, we provide guests with their own keys and there is no curfew. Hot showers can also be availed of at no extra charge and the hostel also has disabled facilities available.

Please note that in the interest of all visitors' health and safety and with respect to our House rules, we reserve the right to allocate Guests to different, but equal, rooms for their own safety and comfort. Both our dorms are equally well-equipped. This is purely a measure to guarantee you have a pleasant time with us.

The dorm was comfy enough and felt secure. The kitchen was stocked with breakfast items. The host was kind to me. I had some trouble checking in because I didn’t have a phone that could make local calls and needed to call a number taped to the door to get the host to come let me in. There was no option to text even if I found wifi, which there was none available in Thurso that I could find anyway. If you have a SIM card it should be fine, but I was a bit miserable wandering with my backpack.

Staff were lovely and the location was perfect for an overnight stay doing the NC500. Not the nicest hostel I’ve stayed in but perfectly adequate for the price. I was in a 4 bed female dorm and unfortunately bumped my head on the ceiling a few times being on the top bunk. But other than that everything was fine. Breakfast and kitchen facilities were great.
