The gateway to the Western Isles, Oban Hostel makes a great base for touring, hiking, biking and boating. It is set on the seafront and is close to ferry terminals and a sailing school.

Accommodation is in 2 to 6-bedded rooms with family and private rooms available (with a lodge offering small en-suite rooms) and facilities include Internet access, on-site shop, laundry and a kitchen.

This hostel is an ideal base for exploring the surrounding area. Oban Distillery is only a 10-minute walk away and features a Sensory and Flavours Tour which runs regularly throughout the day. Oban War and Peace Museum is just 8 minutes’ walk away and the impressive McCaig’s Tower is about 15 minutes on foot.

The cooked breakfast was not very pleasant. In particular, the sausage was of very poor quality. Apart from that, the hostel was very good.
