Sandra's Backpackers Hostel

Photos Facilities Map Streetview Reviews

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.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

We came in late and could check in without any problems. One of the fish and chips guys (younger dude) took us upstairs and showed us our room. Here the disaster begins. The room was small, smelled badly, the bedsheets were dirty and small curly hairs were on it. We could see footsteps on the bathroom floor probably from the last person in there. The bathroom as itself wasnt bad at all, but the black footprint fit in to the curly hair on the bed.
The kitchen + common room were normal/lower standard.
I would not recommend this hostel at all. If you travel by car, sleep in it or spend some pound more.
It was cheap but even if they would give me 20 pound per night i would not sleep in there again.
Furthermore the internet was broken.

Never, ever, again !

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

The check-in was in the fish and chip shop down stairs and we were shown to our room by one of the employees who did a quick tour of the facilities with us. The resident's laundry was completely full of hostel washing and was in that state for our entire stay. We had to remove wet sheets etc from the only washing machine to do our washing and the same with the dryers.
The room we had could also benefit from new pillows. We had to fold them in half to get enough height. While it may have been refurbished it is definitely not one of the most modern and comfortable in Scotland
