This is a simple hostel in a beautiful position, right on the waterfront in Tobermory. There's a well-equipped kitchen with tables looking out over the harbour. Bedrooms are fairly small with good beds and some hanging and stashing space. It's all fairly new and well maintained. The warden is friendly and helpful. I don't want luxury, and this hostel suits...

Thought we'd try a youth hostel again after a 20 plus years gap. Amenities / facilities exactly the same as if it was still the 1990's, except the price - £60 for a couple in the most basic of basic rooms with no breakfast, etc Only OK for people who are used to decent B&B's/guesthouses - for hikers and students...

We found the hostel was clean, fresh-looking and warm. Karolina and Mat were both very welcoming and went out of their way to be helpful. We really enjoyed our stay. Highly recommend Café Fish and Fish and Chip Van on the quay.

I’ve stayed at a few youth hostels in England but I have to say this is towards the bottom of my list of great places to stay. It’s on the main street in Tobermory and looks out over the harbour, as did our bedroom window, which was a lovely surprise. The receptionist was miserable and if we hadn't mentioned that...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Tobermory Youth Hostel is located in the centre of town on the main street. It is one of the many brightly painted buildings in Tobermory's harbour (the red-pink one). Tobermory Youth Hostel is surrounded by shops, restaurants, art galleries and the busy harbour with boats coming in and out all day. It is also famous as the location for the popular BBC children's show Balamory. Tobermory Youth Hostel is an ideal location for families, sea food enthusiasts, marine wildlife watchers and is also a good base for exploring other areas of the island, whether on bike or on foot. 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. ... more   less
