Overall Ullapool SYHA is a decent hostel with everything you need for a budget trip however some improvements could be made. I arrived from Stornoway cycling through Outer Hebrides and found the hostel literally a few minutes walk from the ferry terminal. There is a nice secure room which can hold over a dozen bicycles. I had two rooms during... More

I really like this hostel with its friendly staff and excellent location. You won't need a car to reach this place as it can be done totally by public transport. It is right on main street across the street is the harbor and a 3 minute walk to the ferry that take you to the outer Hebrides! It is a... More

I have stayed at Ullapool Hostel on a number of occasions over the past 16 or more years. The present Managers have created a warm and welcoming environment with an integrity in the ethos created in the Hostel. There is a commitment to the environment by offering recycling facilities, Fair Trade tea and coffee, environmentally friendly soap in the washrooms... More

We stayed here for one night and the hostel was very quiet. On arrival the staff were very helpful and welcoming. Our room was fine, we had a private twin room very clean and comfortable. We were very cold when we arrived as we had got wet on a walk and were looking forward to a warm shower. Unfortunately the... More

We only stayed 1 night in Ullapool. Hostel was clean and tidy. There was no particular atmosphere, maybe because it was silent season... However, I didn't feel any "soul" in this backpacker. The 2 bunkbeds room we slept in was VERY small, 1.5m large (!!!) and the beds not made. Last detail that literally shocked me was the £1 /... More

Having pulled out of a sodden camping trip, we considered ourselves lucky to find a room with space for three together in Ullapool, with the bonus of a huge heated drying room (big enough to hang up the tent). We were doubtless lucky in our large, sea-front room at short notice, and everything is pretty much as you'd expect in... More

Stayed here because I got late to Ullapool from the ferry from Harris. The shower had no cold/ warm water only very hot water so I had to shower trying not to get burned. You have to make your own bed in what is probably an 8 person dorm. There are no plugs in the room, I only found one... More

Stayed here for 3 nights and very much enjoyed our stay. Rooms fit for purpose with the option of paying for an exclusive room. If not, you can't choose your roomates! Kitchen area decent and very spacious. Bathroom very good with very powerful showers which was a bonus. The hostel is based right on Ulapool harbour and the Ferry Boat... More

The facilities are clean, I found them spotless all through, and move than adequate. Occupancy was low, making the stay very comfortable. Enjoyed a private double room. Parked outside the front door. Ferry terminal a moment along the road. Staff helpful and friendly. I have stayed here before and will stay again.

The location is great just on the pier and the welcome was really nice. We had a 5 bed room for the 4 of us which was great. We sleeped really well, absolutely no noise in the hostel during the night probably thanks to the closing of the doors at midnight. Breakfast is simple but good. Maybe a bit expensive... More
