We stayed for two nights 22nd / 23rd of March for the first time. Really enjoyed our stay. We were offered the pick of the rooms as it was just prior to the start of the season. Friendly bunch of hostlers and staff @ JIH, rooms comfy at a good price.
Some of the rooms are located at the front overlooking the river, gets noisy at 2300-0030 due to the circle of life that is the youth of that fair town enjoying the fruit of the vine (bit like we did umpteen moons ago). Weather was great over the two days, a day return to Colonsay was £18.90 each on the CalMac ferry from Oban Pier and worth every penny for the scenery, make sure the sun's shining though.
Kitchen facilities at the hostel, and continental breakfast were excellent . Big Tesco 3 minute walk from hostel. You have got to try the fish and chips at the chippy at the far end of town. They have a photo of Rick Stein from his visit to the chippy on the wall. Fantastic local fish and a warm welcome awaits. Small portion haddock & chips £3:80 - heaven.
See you again next year Jeremy.
