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?

I enjoyed my stay at Oban Backpackers. The staff was very helpful and friendly and the facilities were in great shape. I liked the vibe and the company of the other hostel-goers who were really respectful and a lot of fun. The mattress was a bit hard on my back, but it is a hostel!

Very friendly, helpful staff. Brilliant atmosphere. Central location. I can recommend stay in that hostel to everyone. There is only one thing could be fixed - Wi-fi in rooms.

Cheerful hostel nestled on a side street in Oban, within walking distance of everything in town (it's not that big). Good hostel atmosphere in common area. Clean and comfortable. Would stay again.

Great hostel, nice big rooms. Close to everything. Common room and kitchen are some of the best I've seen. Would definitely stay here again.
