Very centrally located near the the train station and very reasonably priced. The staff were very pleasant and showed me round and then left me too it. The decor is a little jaded but for the price its only to be expected but it has a homely feel. Powerful warm shower, comfortable bed, kitchen, breakfast included, no curfew and free... More

It hasn't changed much. First went their 10 years ago and they have the same standards as before- reasonably priced, easy to deal with, clean rooms etc. Its centrally located and good for the ferry or exploring Oban. They don't pressure you about going in and out and generally just leave people to get on with it. The kitchen has... More

I have paid much more and stayed in worse places! given the price you cannot expect 5 star accommodation, but what I experienced was perfectly fine. The place was clean and quiet, great location and while the décor is a bit old school, it hold a certain charm. The breakfast is most welcome, particularly the homemade jam!

Arrived in Oban late evening and were desperately looking for a place to stay. It was a Saturday and without much guessing, most B&Bs in town were occupied. Found a very small sign on the door saying "Jeremy Inglis Hostel". Decided to give it a go after frantically spending 1 hour driving around town looking for a bed given our... More

Ticks all the boxes for those wanting a budget overnight stay. What I liked most about this place is that you immediately felt at home, as the large dining area and kitchen, with wonderful photos, had a warm convivial atmopsphere and was available to guests throughout the day. It was clean, the staff always helpful and my wife and I... More

I stayed at the hostel for 4 nights with my small dog. We were kindly given a larger room than we had initially booked, and were able to have access to it straight away, even though we had arrived good few hours earlier than standard check-in time. The room was great - comfortable and bright. They have a large kitchen... More

A great hostel experience, the hostel is full of flowers and photographs and paintings , and the small single room was comfortable and a great price compared to what is charged in many hostels now. The breakfast is great too, and included intheprice.

We stayed for two nights and only wish it could have been longer! Very comfortable and warm rooms, friendly staff, good kitchen and wifi. Only down side was the shower (pressure) and freezing temp of the bathroom but I spose you get that in Scotland in November! We loved our stay and would recommend it to any one.

We stayed here for one night on our end to end cycling tour as we we'd arrived late from the ferry from Lochboisedale to find the youth hostel was full and it was a bit torrentially wet for camping. The owners seemed nice but the decor is certainly tired and neither of us really fancied a shower here as bathroom... More

jeremyinglis, Owner at Jeremy Inglis Hostel, responded to this review

Copperkettle 88's comments are somewhat confusing as he says that "the kitchen area is big and nice in a quirky way", but in the same sentence he says that there is nowhere to make breakfast, which is untrue, as we have a (as he put it) "big and nice" and well equipped kitchen. We are not a spanking modern hostel... More
