As winner of the prestigious Green Tourism Business Goldstar Award 2011, Lochranza Youth Hostel is ranked as one of the UKs top ten greenest businesses. Lochranza Youth Hostel offers excellent budget and group accommodation but is also family friendly with private en-suite rooms, a spacious self-catering kitchen and laundry service available. Lochranza Youth Hostel is situated on the banks of Loch Ranza, opposite a 13th-century ruined castle in beautiful countryside. The youth hostel is also located on the Cock of Arran trail, which provides a beautifully scenic low level trek. The youth hostel garden is a great spot to watch wildlife, including red deer, red squirrel, grey seals, otters and golden eagles. Lochranza Youth Hostel benefits from a great bus connection and the bus stop is only 5 minutes walk away. Wi-Fi during your stay: We do our best to deliver a free Wi-Fi service but apologise that connectivity, particularly in our rural locations, can be intermittent due to the level of our current broadband provision along with high usage when the youth hostel is busy. Please be assured we are endeavouring to improve where we can. We thank you for your patience and understanding.

Not the best Youth Hostel in retrospect, but the best value for money. Sometimes you can see deers or stags from the windows. A lot of bugs in the morning after a rain. It is close to the Arran Distillery, cheapest place on Arran, there's a key for yr locker too.

There in poor weather and the place was warm, dry and with an effective drying room. Relaxed atmosphere. Comfortable, clean and well equipped. Helpful staff. If there was one small criticism it would be that though comfortable the beds were a little narrow.
