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.

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.
