    Lovely place with lots of charm. I stayed in a 4-person dorm room with an ensuite bath. Beds were comfortable and I had the whole room to myself. Price was excellent and the staff super friendly and helpful. You really can't beat the views, either.

    Very clean, comfortable rooms. Large, well-equipped kitchen. Located on the opposite edge of town from the bus stop, but a stunning fresh walk along the pier to get there. My only concern was that the staff were slightly abrupt with us. I'm not sure if we caught them at a bad time, but both at check in and check out, we were greeted with impatience and irritation that left us feeling slightly unwelcome. Possibly just a once off fluke. Still a lovely place to stay.

    We were 3 in a 4 beds dormitory ensuite. Great location, correct staff, and comfortable beds. The kitchen is perfect for those they want to cook themselves ! Everything was cleaned. If you're looking for a great hostel atmosphere, this is quieter than others hostels were we slept but we didn't go downstairs to the pub !

    The dorm rooms were clean and spacious with comfortable beds. There are no lockers for valuables like laptops, passports, and wallets in the rooms. You could exchange the dresser and TV for a small locker block. The bathrooms were clean and the showers had plenty of hot water and pressure. Extra hooks for clothes and towels would be nice. The kitchen was well stocked with pots and pans, cutlery, and utensils. The Wifi was consistent and very fast. Overall the best hostel in Oban.

    Was a great place to stay in for the night. Rooms where good sizes and loved the community kitchen idea. One problem I had was the music in the bar. Was staying at the very top floor and still heard it. My friend also got harassed by a few drunk guys who where trying to take her key off her and trying to get in the building. But apart from that it was really good! :)

    Bugs, bugs, bugs, I got bitten by so many bed bugs that cant say. I had a fever next day but nobody said hello or I'm sorry. At 4 o'clock in the morning first night I called the staff for help. They had a problem giving me another room. In general they dont like backpackers there, only their money. They put me in a very small, bug smelly room. For the next day after being bitten by the bugs they offerd me simillar, horrible room. No respect, no help and zero understanding. It should be closed.
