I visited with a bunch of uni mates on a geology field trip to North West Scotland in June 2015. It has excellent kitchen and communal areas (although an extra microwave would be useful!). Beds are reasonably comfortable and the toilets are clean and well kept. Only one plug socket per room so bring an extension lead! Beware! Wifi is... More

This is the only hostel in ullapool, it will cost you £22 a night but it's fairly decent. Excellent kitchen and communal areas but has a early curfew which is a shame as there are good pubs around town. I'd stay here again.

The hostel and the facilities are really okay, especially the kitchen and dining area. Our twin room was very small and almost not furnished besides a bunk bed. For the relatively high price I would have expected slightly more. To this point I would still recommend the hostel, but there are a few reasons why I would not come here... More

This is a very well run hostel with the most amazing location and views. There are not many hostels where you can watch the seals swim and play while you are washing your dishes and eating your meal. Our family room also had a view over Ullapool harbour. There is a very nice little pub just up the road in... More

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
