I was hoping for a relaxed stay at Tobermory Youth Hostel after 2 days cycling, which sadly I didn't get. Instead of the warm welcome I hope to receive, I was "greeted" by stern-looking foreign woman who lectured me on the rules of the hostel. I was disappointed to learn that it has no drying room, no lockers to secure my belongings and WIFI was charged at £1 for 20 minutes!!! Unbelievable.
The hostel has obvious problems with its showers, which are few in number and unable to drain.
In the morning I went to reception to get some travel advice, to be greeted by the sound of loud music and the 2 foreign staff eating fried breakfasts on the reception counter. The women more interested in each other than catering for me. A distateful experience. I would not stay again.
