We’ve got wide, comfortable, spacious bunk beds, and they come made up with linen, duvets and two pillows. The hostel showers are awesome with lots of hot water and the hostel has full central heating so you’re warm and cosy whatever the weather outside
In the evenings, if you want to enjoy Oban’s night-life our staff can point you in the right direction; or just stay in and relax in our lounge with its real fire and pool table, make new friends or just chill out and cook a meal.
Oban is a picturesque town possessing spectacular views across to the Hebridean islands that are simply stunning. In particular, the view at dusk from McCaig’s Tower provides a sunset you are unlikely to forget. Like any small port, there is a lot going on in Oban; the bustle of fishing boats, ferries, yachts and sea birds make the waterfront a lovely place to be.
The port is also a transport hub for boat trips to the many beautiful Scottish Isles should you wish to explore the more remote areas of Scotland. Ancient standing stones are to be found all over the Oban area, as well as more recent structures such as medieval castles and whisky distilleries.
Our staff are friendly and many of them, like you, are backpackers themselves taking a break from their travels. So don’t hesitate to ask them for advice or information on what to do in and around Oban.
