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.

    A great little hostel within walking distance from everything! The staff was super friendly and facilities were great. Relaxed atmosphere, friendly vibes and clean rooms and bathrooms. Would definitely stay again :) The only little down side was a curfew at 2:30, but I guess nothing happens at Obin after that anyways and no trains or buses or coming in at that hour, but be prepared if you are a night owl.

    Perfectly located, but there were quite a few drunk people outside the hostel for a few nights, so got quite noisy at night. Would be even better with lockers and more electrical sockets in rooms.

    Really liked this hostel. Only thing to note is that there are no lockers and no cubbies for your stuff so it just sort of lays around on the floor below your bed. But the bunks are really sturdy and they don’t move around. Also the hot water runs out quickly.
