Our funky hostel is part of the World famous ‘Scotland’s Top Hostels’ chain and we look forward to welcoming you to Oban.

Description:
Translated from its Gaelic tongue to mean ‘small bay’, Oban is an idyllic horseshoe bay sheltered from the Atlantic by the isle of Kerrera. Also known as the ‘Gateway to the Isles’, this is the largest port in North West Scotland and boasts spectacular views across to the Hebridean islands. 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.

We serve an optional breakfast of cereal, toast, fruit juice and a freshly baked Scottish scone. You can have a 'wee bit of everything' for just £2.00 or simply prepare your own. The choice is yours!
Our funky living room boasts plenty of comfy sofas, a pool table, a fabulous real coal fire, loads of useful local information, games, free WiFi, an Internet Café Style computer and as much free tea, coffee & hot chocolate as you can drink!

    This hostel had the best atmosphere of any place I've stayed. Free tea, coffee and hot chocolate, a pool table, guitars in the cozy lounge room. There's no wifi in the rooms and the mattresses are foam, but how much time does a person spend in their room?
