Property Description

Surrounded by miles of beautiful countryside and dramatic coastline, Oban is a great place to stay – and a wonderful gateway to the Western Isles. Five star Oban Youth Hostel is located right on the seafront, close to the ferry port, with stunning views over the Firth of Lorne and the Inner Hebrides.

Nearby attractions include Oban Distillery, McCaig’s Tower, St Columba’s Cathedral, Oban War and Peace Museum. Oban also boasts many good restaurants (seafood a speciality), bars and shops. Outdoor activities include scuba diving and sailing.

Oban Youth Hostel comprises two buildings - the original Victorian villa and a modern lodge to the rear. Each offers excellent value accommodation, with multi-share and private en-suite rooms. The lodge is perfect for groups wanting their own space and can be hired separately from the main building; guests will enjoy full use of its self-catering kitchen and adjoining lounge. Meals are also available in the beautiful Raasay Dining Room.

Secure bike storage, drying room and laundry facilities are available on-site for all guests to use.

    Really lovely rooms with key card access, comfortable beds with little shelves and lights, powerful showers, and great views of the bay. Easy check in and out. The communal space was nice and clean.

    Great place for a night or two. Loved how hot the shower got, warmed me up from the cold. Though my room was full, the whole place has a bit of a big and empty feel.

    Amaizing view from the window! The shower though sounded like a construction side, which wasn't the most pleasant way to wake up. And even though the hostel was kinda fully booked out I didn't meet a soul in the lounge+kitchen which was a bit weird. But in total nothing much to complain about concerning the hostel itself (ok...the shower :D)
