          I recommend this Youth Hostel very highly. The location is wonderful and will provide a wonderful base for those who wish to visit the mountains. The facilities are excellent but most of all, the staff are welcoming and helpful. Especially Sara.

          Thank Tomzmullen

          Rooms and sheets are very clean . The hostel is located just in front of the Loch. In nature. The landscape is amazing. Very frendly welcome by a helpful and smiling lady. Too bad for the muddy parking.

          About
          Hotel description
          Gairloch Sands Youth Hostel is a cosy former hunting lodge situated on the northern shore of Loch Gairloch with magnificent sea and mountain views. Built in the 1880's this is one of the oldest youth hostels within the SYHA network. Gairloch Sands Youth Hostel is a popular choice with groups, families and individual travellers looking for budget accommodation. The youth hostel offers a good range of facilities including an excellent dining room, a well-equipped self-catering kitchen and both multi-share and private bedrooms. The most commented feature by our guests is the lounge which boasts stunning panoramic views of the Torridon hills and Loch Gairloch. Wi-Fi during your stay: We do our best to deliver a free Wi-Fi service but apologise that connectivity, particularly in our rural locations, can be intermittent due to the level of our current broadband provision along with high usage when the youth hostel is busy. Please be assured we are endeavouring to improve where we can. We thank you for your patience and understanding
