Lonely Planet review
This former RAF base is not the most atmospheric lodging, but the barracks-style rooms offer great value. The restaurant dishes out reasonable local food, and there’s a bar – Britain’s northernmost, by our reckoning – and a friendly, helpful atmosphere. Self-catering houses (£450 to £595 per week) are good for families and available year-round.
Our independent authors have visited Saxa Vord Hostel and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in Unst.
Description provided by property
Saxa Vord's Sergeants' Mess Hostel is much more than a hostel - indeed it is more akin to a university hall of residence in style.
Designed with lovers of the great outdoors in mind, it is warm and comfortable and has everything that you need to relax after a day's exploration, including a bar selling delicious bar meals just down the corridor.
The main hostel is situated in the former Sergeants' Mess and has large, bright rooms, most of which are single-occupancy.
Our hostel guests have access a bar and restaurant which has a relaxing atmosphere, where you are served by our caring staff. Our bar serves a diverse range of products, including the locally brewed Valhalla Beer range. Our restaurant freshly prepares all meals using locally sourced produce.
