5 star Oban Youth Hostel is located on the seafront, with stunning views over the Firth of Lorne and the Inner Hebrides. It’s an ideal base for exploring the local area or as a stop-over on the way to the Western Isles.
The youth hostel is close to Oban town centre and ferry port. Nearby attractions include Oban Distillery, McCaig’s Tower, St Columba’s Cathedral, Oban War and Peace Museum. Oban also boasts many good restaurants, bars and shops. Outdoor activities include scuba diving and sailing.
Oban Youth Hostel comprises two buildings - the original Victorian building and a modern lodge to the rear. Each offers excellent budget accommodation, with traditional multi-share and private en-suite rooms. The lodge is perfect for groups wanting their own space and can be hired separately from the main building - guests can enjoy full use of its self-catering kitchen and adjoining lounge. Meals are also available in the beautiful Raasay Dining Room. A secret gem is the self-contained flat which is available for sole use. It sleeps 8-9 people and has its own private lounge and kitchen, ideal for families or small groups.
Secure bike storage, drying room and laundry facilities are available on-site for all guests to use. Wi-Fi/internet access is free.
