A group of us on a cycling touring holiday stayed here for one night last week. We booked the two bedroom apartment and were delighted with the facilities. (As there were eight of us and only one toilet / shower between us it was difficult but still great value for money). Having your own lounge area was also a bonus.
The reception staff were excellent even when under pressure with so many guests arriving at the same time.
The cooked breakfast at £6 per head is very good value and the views from the restaurant window must be one of the best in Oban.
We never used the cooking facilities so cannot comment.
Overall one of the best youth hostels we have stayed in and would certainly return and happily recomend anyone to stay here.

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
