Excellent! Clean, tidy, friendly staff. Perfect! There is a nice large social room with kitchen and sofas. Also a log fire although not required during my stay.

We stayed here on the 2nd to last day of our Land's End to John O'Groats cycle. We arrived tired and a bit later than planned in the evening and were welcomed by the staff and Irene kindly offered to phone ahead to the local pub to ask for them to stay open to serve us food. It was very... More

Irene at Helmsdale hostel was friendly and helpful from my first contact with her. The hostel is in a beautiful old gymnasium building which lends itself to large airy rooms. Everything is new, fresh and spotless. We were in a private dorm ensuite with towels - lovely bathroom. The communal areas were welcoming and well maintained. Kitchen was fully equipped... More

I won't repeat all the glowing accolades other travellers have posted. They're all true. Support this fantastic independent venture if ever you're in the area. Owned and run by the resident manager, a truly welcoming, friendly & helpful host. Do your bit to keep this great little hostel running. Stay there. Go now!

A lovely hostel with a fantastic manageress. We were cycling north to John o Groats and this place was en route. A place was found for the bikes in the shed and we took one of the en suite rooms in the front of the building. The building itself is a magnificent place with a large open room where there... More

Arriving on a wet and windy afternoon we were shown a nice light room at the front of the hostel. It was en-suite and great value for hostel rates. A well stocked kitchen, log fire and super lounge area. We were made to feel welcome by the staff and other guests. A great staging post on the trek upto Orkney.

Well looked after hostel with friendly and helpful staff. Extremely clean throughout and very comfortable. Made very welcome after a long and weary days cycling and pleased to find no bunk beds. Huge lounge area with cosy log burning fire.
