This hostel was great, the staff were very accommodating, and solved problems quickly. The showers were very hot and had good pressure, and it was nice to have so many hand towels around to dry our hands. However, both days the toilet paper ran out on the whole floor, maybe have some extr in the stall, or check more often.

Great hostel! It's in a central location, rooms are big and comfortable with huge under bed lockers. The kitchen is very well equipped and large and there's good common areas. Also free breakfast . Stay here if you're coming to Oban.

Nice hostel with good ambience. My only complaints are: 1) The room we stayed in on the first night was incredibly stuffy (even with the tiny window open) and thus quite suffocating. 2) Two verrrrryyy loud and verrrrrry drunk guys messed up what started off as a really good night's sleep. Their drunken debauchery lasted a good 2 hours with no intervention from staff (who, I assume, sleep at the hostel as well). They only shut up after my friend and the guy next door got up and told them to.

When I arrived, I was very impress about the cozy atmosphere in the beautiful and lovely lounge. The kitchen pretty new and full equipped. The toilets and showers extremely clean and a spacious and lovely bedrooms. I think is one of the best hotels I've ever been. Keep working because you are doing it pretty well

Almost a dream location ! courtesy, efficiency, and what a lounge !!! people are nice (they even do laundry if you pay a little extra). Nice little kitchen (we stayed at the secondary building) with a lot of inclusions (milk, breakfast, coffee, etc...). Good, clean, powerfull showers. This city is a must to visit. So book with peace of mind !

The staff were really welcoming, such a chilled spot really secure and clean. They have power outlets for each bed and the rooms/bathrooms are awesome. A little effort goes a long way and they certainly deserve a visit!

I did not get a very good nights sleep as it was in a mixed 8 bed room the five others were close friends and one had already taken my designated bed so was very uncomfortable too much noise etc . I must stress that the hostel is my favorite and the staff are second to none , but I will make sure the next time that I don't get an eight bed mixed !! Joe....
