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.

You had to call for reception. Maindoors were not locked. The kitchen was dirty. It was a help yourself breakfast. The best before date on the bread was already past. The towels were still a bit wet. The whole building needs an upgrade. We don’t recommend anyone to stay there.

I have booked a private room for 2 persons. We had also our own bathroom. The self-catering facilities were also great. Continental breakfast was also included. Kind staff. Clear recommendation for backpacker.
