Surrounded by miles of beautiful countryside and dramatic coastline, this five star VisitScotland accredited youth hostel is within easy walking distance of the town centre and comprises two buildings - the original Victorian villa and a modern lodge to the rear.
A perfect choice for groups, families and individual travellers, both buildings offer high quality private en-suite rooms and comfortable shared accommodation, all with lockers and bedside lighting and many with sea views.
WiFi is free for all guests and other facilities include a well-equipped self-catering kitchen, an excellent drying room, laundry and secure bike storage with cycle washing facilities. Basic provisions, confectionery and soft drinks are available to purchase at reception.
Guests can opt for continental breakfast served in the beautiful Raasay Dining Room and relax with a glass of wine or local craft beer in the adjoining lounge with its views over the Firth of Lorne and the Inner Hebrides. Dinner and packed lunches are also available by prior arrangement for groups of ten or more.
The lodge is perfect for groups wanting their own space and can be hired separately from the main building.
The hostel is located right on the seafront, close to the ferry port, and we’re happy to accommodate guests catching early ferries to the islands.
Nearby attractions include Oban Distillery, McCaig’s Tower, St Columba’s Cathedral and Oban War & Peace Museum. Famous for its local seafood, Oban boasts many good restaurants, bars and shops. For the more adventurous, scuba diving and sailing are available locally.
Oban is a dog-friendly hostel. If you would like to book yourself and your dog into the hostel, please phone the hostel direct to check availability. There is a small charge of £5 per night for your dog when staying in our hostels.
