Hostel is located right in the center of town, just a short walk from the ferry terminal. The staff is super friendly, and the common room is huge, and has a very relaxed/friendly vibe to it. Kitchen is great, rooms are clean, showers hot, will definitely stay here again if I'm back in Oban. No lockers, so be wary of that, but other than that, no complaints! Definitely worth the stay 😊

A cheap and cheerful base from which to explore the islands. It did the job but wasn't anything particularly special. Our dorm was freezing when we first arrived and took a while to heat due to high ceilings. Showers didn't have much space for getting changed, and water pressure wasn't great. Toilets weren't super clean. The common area was nice enough although the log fire was only lit on one night of our stay, which was a shame as this made the whole place much cosier!

Rory is the man! Two of my friends are first time hostelers and they were very impressed by his hospitality and helpfulness.

Da die Stadt sowieso relativ klein ist, ist die Lage fast überall unschlagbar. Man braucht ca. 10 Minuten zum Tesco und das ist die längste Strecke. In 5 Minuten ist man bei Pubs, Restaurants, am Meer, am (Bus) Bahnhof oder am Fährhafen. Das Hostel ist sehr sauber und die Betten sehr bequem. Es gibt eine Küche zum Kochen und man kann für kleines Geld Frühstück im Hostel bekommen. Die Angestellten Haben viele Geheomtipps und sind immer sehr freundlich. Fragt einfach nach.. :) Top im PLV!
