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. Hostel guests also have a laundry facility on-site where service washes are provided. Saxa Vord Resort is a large complex which also comprises of 18 self-catering houses, snooker facilities and a chocolate factory on site.

Prices are per person per night.

One early morning, accompanied with a semi-hot cappuccino and croissant eaten like a true Roman - standing up and in a hurry - I was off on the Metro to the Vatican.
