We were treating ourselves with a nice meal so we went for the cheaper accomodation option. Now, I'm sure when I phoned to check I was told their private rooms were on-suite...... but it would appear their was a mix up when we arrived as we had been allocated a 6-bed dorm to ourselves. This meant bunkbeds (but we put matresses on the floor) and the shower room was upstairs. At the end of the day we were not looking for 5 star accomodation, and the rooms were clean so we had no complaints.
Our room was number 1 and was very noisey with people going up and downstairs from quite early and the walls are very thin, didn't get very much sleep, but again, it is a youth hostel so what do you expect.
I think other reviews are a bit unfair, as most youth hostels shut for a few hours during the day and lets face it there is not much to do in Tobermory after midnight so the curfew does not really matter. Nice big communal areas too.
I think we would probably stay here again, as we got a great breakfast from the Tobermory bakery and sat on the harbour and ate it, and its in a great location for exploring.
