Property Description

Located on the main street, surrounded by shops, galleries, bars and restaurants, Tobermory Youth Hostel is one of the many brightly painted buildings sitting on one of Scotland’s most colourful and attractive harbours.

Perfect for groups, families and individual travellers, the hostel offers guests a variety of room types, many with enviable sea views and all available to be booked as private rooms. None of the rooms are en-suite, but ample shower and washroom facilities are available.

Guests can opt for a continental breakfast in the dining room, watching the fishing boats come and go from the harbour, or take advantage of the well-equipped self-catering kitchen. The hostel is licensed and you can relax in the evening with a local craft beer or glass of wine.

WiFi access is free for all guests and other facilities include a comfortable lounge with TV and DVD player, excellent laundry, drying room, cycle storage and a small enclosed garden at the back with a picnic table - ideal for morning coffee or lunch.

Parking is on the main street, but there’s also a car and coach park five minutes’ walk away at the end of Main Street. Currently parking in Tobermory is free.

Curving round a sheltered bay Tobermory is an ideal holiday location for wildlife watchers, hill walkers, seafood enthusiasts - and families. It’s also a great place to base yourself for exploring other areas of the island, whether on bike or on foot.

The hostel is also available for exclusive private rental.

Iconic location, let down by inadequate facilities. Lack of hot water for showering for the number of guests accepted at one time. Poor drainage - water pooled badly in the shower. Zero hot water in the kitchen for washing dishes. The exception was the staff, who couldnt have been more helpful. Come on Tobermory Hostel, you are letting Hostelworl down.

Cute, clean hostel. Was lucky to not have dorm-mates on 2/3 nights of my stay. Staff were *exceptional* - Tashi and Marta, and special mention to Catherine for providing support for a last minute need, and for good chat! Location is fantastic, kitchen & common rooms fully equipped and great view of Tobermory bay. Met some interesting guests as well, with different age groups and passions. It's not *luxury* not meant for *fussy* people. But me, 10/10 would return, and recommend to travellers!!
