excellent! very friendly staff! and 2 minutes away from the centre & harbour. rooms very clean! and finally a hostel with the bunk beds well fixed! upper level dont disturb to the lower lever of the bunk bed. probably i will try to comeback in summer! :)


Overall no complaints here. Comfortable bedrooms, everything was clean. Showers were great! No breakfast but very cheap if you want it (£2 for everything). Kitchen facilities well stocked, wifi was good. Staff are very happy to tell you about things to do and where things are (thank you ally!). Very comfortable stay.


El hotel esta bien situado, las camas son cómodas dentro de lo que se puede pedir a un hostal y estaba limpio. Es un hostalito pequeño pero es acojedor y decorado de forma divertida y original. El dasayuno no está incluido pero por 2e tienes zumo, cafe/te/colacao, tostadas, cereales y un bollo raro escocés. Además tienes todo el día té, cafe y chocolate gratis ! Lo recomendaría para gente joven que tengan que hacer noche en Oban.
