This was my first stay at Backpackers Plus and I cannot wait to return in the summer. When the weather may have improved. The staff were friendly and welcomming. The accommodation was clean and comfortable. It is within easy reach of all Oban has to offer.

This is one of the cleanest, friendliest, best managed hostels around! Everything is cleaned everyday, the staff are warm and friendly, the accommodations are comfortable, bright and cheery. Lots of amenities and wifi (truly) throughout the building. The kitchen in ample and well equipped, i can't say enough about how great this place is!

Was made to feel welcome and the host was very hospitable. The facilities were very clean; the cleanest I've seen at a hostel. The kitchen is fully equipped and there's even free food. The beds had two pillows and the room temperature was easily adjustable (choice between window, can and radiator.

For a private room I only paid £19 a night. Amazing price. Right in the middle of town. The kitchen was great, fully equipt with all cooking facilities and free breakfast! Including my favourite Aussie treat, vegemite! The owner even popped over to say hi while we were enjoying a drink in the kitchen. Would recomend to anyone staying in... More

Cheap as chips but comfy and clean. Yes the decor in the house is a little dated but it was super clean, warm, good TV, good connection to BT Openzone wifi, close to town and staff really lovely. I'm used to a hotel but booked this as I needed a cheap get away and this more than fitted the bill!

I spend a week in this backpackers, for a training course in Oban. The kitchens are big and open, which was nice. The common areas are colorful, there is a lot of space, and there are comfortable settees. The staff is very friendly too! The dorms are large, with a lot of space to store your luggage. Not too hot,... More

I absolutely loved loved loved my stay here! I wanted something cheap as I was just staying the one night, as this is about as cheap as you can get, but it no way compromised on comfort or anything else! It was a little confusing when I first arrived as this had previously been part of Oban Backpackers, but since... More

Booked for 2 nights, ended up staying for 4. The rooms were great, the showers were fantastic (very nice water pressure, but just a tad too hot though), and the staff were incredibly friendly and accommodating. I'm a very light sleeper and had problems sleeping due to a noisy group sharing my dorm, and was very kindly moved to another... More
