    Great place to stay if solo traveller. Train delayed but it was no bother for the staff. They sent an email with clear instructions how to get in the back door and how to access room key. Breakfast is available to buy. Staff were happy to keep backpack so I could explore Oban before my ferry. Will definitely stay there again.

    We had a twin room with en suite facilities. It was clean, comfortable and private. Excellent value and a great location only a short walk into the town. Super view of the ferries and boats sailing into Oban from the hostel. Breakfast was terrific value.
