      Good price and nice location

      We had no towels as hadn't realised we should bring our own

      The view from the room was excellant. Easy walk to town. Parking was ok

      To expensive for this type of accomodation. My wife thought the bed was to hard, I thought it was ok. You could hear everthing from next door

      Youth hostel life member, wish to continue a worthwhile cause for others to enjoy. Always good to meet like minded travels. Excellent facilities, fantastic cooked breakfast!

      It looked nice on my arrival, and the room (an annex with rooms behind the main building) seemed clean although had white stains on the carpet. It was very handy that I could arrive anytime up to 23.00hrs. The room was well heated.

      I was given room 221..it was right next door to the boiler room and I woke every 2 hrs to hear the pump (I presume) clicking on and off every few seconds for about 15mins..after 3.15 am, I could not get back to sleep.

      Our favourite youth hostel in the U K. very convenient for visiting the highlands and islands of Sccotland. Good self-catering. tescos nearby. Excellent position on the esplanade with beautiful views. Good for meeting other travellers. Beautifully refurbished hostel. Parking available.

      Best described as gate way to the islands. Real useful for ferries out to Inner and outer hebrides.

      All good - more connection with Mull and other Wildlife tourism destinations may help advertsing.

      The room was clean and warm. The staff were brilliant. I would definately stay here again. The hostel looks excellent after the refurbishment. Overall excellent value for money.

    • Family with children

      Location. Friendly staff. Decor. Facilities including toys in lounge for children. Parking. Very good all round.

      No wiping cloths in kitchen. Timer on light in shower (103) was faulty so light would go off after 10 seconds. Wifi price too high - people are used to it being free. Hot water in toilet by front door too hot to use.

    • Older travelers
      9.2

      We have stayed here at intervals over many years - the refurbishment is excellent and the location very convenient particularly for access to the islands.

    • Older travelers
      7.0

      Location excellent, comfortable and fairly clean room. Liked separate shower and WC. Top quality toilet paper. we didn't use the coomon rooms eg. kitchen, lounge. The reception was very grand and the building impressive. Special room for our bikes . Night porter on 24 hours, so we could leave early no problem.

      There was a really nasty smell in the kitchen in the lodge. The radiator in our bedroom was spattered with something red - I hope it was Tizer ! I would have liked a tiny bar of soap in the room. I would have liked a kettle in the room. I would prefer white sheets to black. The heating wasn't on. The reception staff did not speak very good english

    • Older travelers

      I enjoyed being on the ocean and the view was magnificent. The staff were very friendly and helpful and we were able to park onsite although there was a scramble for spaces given that it was a very busy weekend in Oban. Our room was right next to the kitchen which was so convenient.

      We felt the hostel was too hot, but we have found to be too a common frature of this part of the world. We come from Northern Australia and are not used to being hot inside and steppping outside to be very cold. Our shower floor retained the water which took a long time to drain away. The walls were thin so we could people moving around and talking.

      the staff were very friendly, it was cheap and cheerful and excellent location for our purposes

    • Family with children

      excellent value for money. Clean spaciouse room

      For the price and type of accomodation there was nothing I could find fault with
