Sergeants’ Mess Shetland Hostel

3* hostel awardLooking for a Shetland hostel?  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 full-board price can be obtained on request.

The main hostel is situated in the former Sergeants’ Mess and has large, bright rooms, with double, twin and single rooms available.
