I was taking a group of friends to Coll and we only required clean & comfortable overnight accommodation in Oban. Previously I've used some of the prominent hotels but all had problems of one sort or another. Being the wrong side of 70, I was hesitant about using a Youth hostel - but it was superb!! We had 2 doubles,... More

I stayed there in a private family room which was very nice and plenty of room. The breakfast was lovely. Only think I would say I was disappointed there was no tv in the private rooms. Apart from that it was lovely. I would def stay again but only if had a tv in the rooms.

We booked a twin en-suite room, as it looks like the doubles are in high demand and booked out well in advance. We actually stayed in a triple with a bunk bed and a separate twin bed that we used as a couch, in a room that was very spacious. Despite being in the lodge building behind the main hostel,... More

I really liked this SYHA place, the buiding is magnificent, doesn't feel like a hostel. The beds were very comfortable, apart from the pillow which was flimsy. There are lockers at the side of the beds - bring a padlock though. Helpful night lamp. En-suite toilet, shower and additional wash basin. There was a little more space here and I... More

I stayed in Oban Youth Hostel for a couple of nights- very decent price especially for an en-suite room. Nice clean hostel, great kitchen and friendly staff. Nicely chilled out place. Breakfast may be a wee bit overpriced though.

The hostel has been done up since my last visit and they have done a great job. The location is very handy as it is only a couple of minutes walk into the main part of town and you are right on the esplanade overlooking the water. We stayed for one night and had two bunk beds and a separate... More

Booked the youth hostel as there were 8 of us needing overnight accommodation in Oban for a wedding. For £ 10 each we were given fantastic family accomodation. Could not believe how spacious it was - large living room with a kitchen off. Two sofas , a dining table and chairs. Up stairs there were two large bedrooms which could... More

Stayed here a couple of times on my way around Scotland. Recently refurbished - very clean and comfortable. Lovely rooms, some with great views over harbour. Good facilities. Friendly staff. Very convenient location - limited parking at hostel (get there early!), but plenty available on road along sea front.

We booked into Oban SYHA hostel for one night to board the ferry for Mull the next day. The newly refurbished hostel included offering the former live in managers flat which they now let out for families. This is a great flat. Own kitchen, bathrooms etc and lots of beds and rooms. If you are thinking of booking into this... More
