8/10 Very good

Staff are brilliant.
Accommodation and staff were excellent. Breakfast was okay, abit burnt particularly the bacon, difficult to eat. On site free parking was appreciated. In this price bracket £68.00 for room plus £9.50 for breakfast, you would expect everything to be right.

Excellent hostel.
I spent two nights in a private room, with an ensuite shower and toilet. This exceeded my expectations in its cleanliness, warmth and comfort. The man in reception was very helpful and friendly, the wifi was very good, the lounge and kitchen facilities were excellent and overall I was delighted with everything. I chose the hostel as a place that was dog friendly and in a superb location in Oban and was not disappointed at all. Very good value for money.
