Probably hard to find better hostel than Backpackers Plus. Atmosphere beautiful, overall look and feel is perfect and all facilities are of high standard. Wish I stay few days more in that massive big and bright lounge with a good book.

The hostel itself was nice and clean, quite well laid out. Really good kitchen and the breakfast was good. Just had a really awkward vibe, but that's probably because there weren't many people there at the time.

awesome. if you're coming to oban, come here. great vibe in the place, common area kicks ass, which is necessary with weather like the scottish coast. rooms are spacious, clean, and warm.

really nice place, very colorful, I was in a 4 beds dorm, which feels like luxury for a hostel. The lounge area is quite big and very cosy and the kitchen is well furnished (including many herbs and spices). Also, it's worth it if only because the hostel is a former church.

Sound proofing not very good, woken by late to beds and early risers.

It was a great experience. Lockers under each bed. We had paid for a 8 person mixed dorm. But ended up being put on a 4 bed dorm which was nice. Clean facilities and the laundry service they offered was awesome. Great location. A very enjoyable stay. Outlets at each bed and a light.

The hostel was really good. Well equipped and all the facilities in really good conditions. The staff is really nice. The 'relaxing area' was amazing, and everything clean and in order, in addition to the free breakfast included in the morning! Good location also. Very recommendable.

Great stay at this hostel! The kitchen was very huge and useful! The lounge vas confortable and the atmosphere really nice! The rooms are great, but the number 6 compared to number 2 was really noisy because of a lack of insonorisation from the ceiling. The bathrooms were clean and there was hot water! Not far from the center of Oban, pretty city.

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.
