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.

James, the guy who did the checkin, called me « stupid » and got into a rage when I kinky asked if there wasn’t a bedsheet missing. When I arrived, tried to shake his hand (he ignored it), I could directly tell I had met a world champion in his category. He is the kind of person you do not want to meet when you are on holiday. I understand this guy clearly doesn’t like his job (or people), but it’s not a reason to behave like this with clients. I don’t recommend this hostel at all.

The hostel did not open until 7p. There was a lovely park nearby to sit and read, and the weather was delightful for doing just that. Then I went to the bar and, afterwards, to the restaurant of the hotel around the corner. Finally I got checked in. My room was down the alley, and it was sufficient and clean. However, to reach the lounge and kitchen, I had to go back to the alley and climb the outside stairs to the next floor. Parking was not convenient as it was blocks away.
