Impressive from outside, modest from the inside; but perfect for one who wants to wash clothes, get deep into conversationes and respects recycling. This place was my rescue really- after a long trip, I found everything I needed from here. And Tom from the reception gave the cherry to the top; excellent service, good and honest talks, and Buddhist flags... More

For what you pay, this hostel isn't really worth it. Paying $35/night and having no free wifi is absurd! The location is the best thing about it, but Ullapool is so small it hardly makes a difference! You also can't enter the hostel between 10 and 4:30, and you get locked out after midnight. Next time I'd pay extra for... More

Converted row of terraced houses along the sea front with views down Loch Broom to distant mountains. On street parking outside hostel and along the road. Staff efficient, friendly and welcoming. Building is well maintained and decorated. Dorms comfortable. Modern toilets and showers. Guest kitchen well equipped. Several comfy lounge areas. Shops nearby. Pleasant stay. Recommended.

I stayed here for two nights and was really delighted with the facilities, cleanliness, location etc... But it was really the friendliness of the staff that made it feel really welcoming and comfortable. I would recommend it to anyone wanting budget accommodation in Ullapool.

Arrived spur of the moment without a reseravation, and they were very helpful in arranging a bed. Located right on the harbour front. Perfect! The kitchen isn't huge for the number of guests, so would suggest getting in early or later to avoid the bottle neck, but has a big seating area. Showers were hot and clean. No lockers were... More

Unable to book into any of my usual spots in the area I reluctantly took the last room at the Youth Hostel. There were three of us in a private room that could have taken five with our own bathroom and shower. I have to admit I was pleasantly surprised. The room was clean although five would have been a...

I have stayed here many times and can never find any fault with the place and have never heard anyone complain either. The Ullapool youth hostel is on the main road and seafront. It takes less than two minutes to get to the ferry terminal from here. There is always a friendly/family feel about the hostel and the staff make... More

We stayed here for one night in July before taking the ferry to Stornoway. It was clean, the staff were friendly, but we had to pay £1/hr for wifi! That was outrageous when really wifi should be free everywhere nowadays. The staff did give us a hairdryer though, which somewhat made up for the lack of wifi. I would stay... More

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
