Positive Reviews

Beautiful location.

The majority of guests praise the location of the hostel excessively, describing views over Oban bay. There also seem to be good transport links considering the size of the town, and a number of walks and sites to see nearby.

Good sized rooms.

A number of reviews compliment the size of the rooms, which seem to be generous. Communal areas also seem to be pleasantly spacious.

Lovely pub downstairs.

The pub below the hostel is reportedly very nice, with character and charm, serving good food a drink. There do not seem to be many complaints of late night noise in relation to the pub.

Negative Reviews

Unpleasant member of staff.

The majority of reviews commend staff for being welcoming and friendly, however a few reviews single out one member of staff who seems to have ruined their stays. Luckily this is not the majority.

Mixed reviews on cleanliness.

Reviews on the cleanliness of the hostel, bathrooms in particular, are very mixed, with some guests describing the rooms as spotless, and others complaining of grime and dirt, which suggests that cleaning standards are not particularly consistent.

Uncomfortable beds.

A few guests comment on hard, small beds. However, the majority of these complaints admit that the beds may simply not be their own personal preference.
