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.

The Original Oban Backpackers is perfectly located to enable you to make the most of your time in Oban. Just a 10 minute stroll from the bus, train and ferry terminals, our friendly hostel has everything you will need after a great day out exploring.

Our spacious, bright dorm rooms have all been recently refurbished and offer wide comfy beds that come complete with fitted sheets, duvets and 2 comfy pillows. Our powerful hot showers are available 24 hours and are guaranteed to leaving you feeling refreshed and ready for your next adventure.
We have a fully equipped self-catering kitchen that has everything you will need to cook your favourite meal and plenty of storage space and fridges available for you to use.
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! It’s a great place to relax and meet like-minded travellers so what are you waiting for?

Our staff are a friendly bunch who know the local area like the backs of their hands so don’t hesitate to pick their brains when you are planning your Oban adventure.

" Great location and friendly staff, only stayed one night and we left early to catch the ferry so we didn't get the whole experience but it seemed very nice, friendly atmosphere. Would definitely stay here again! "
