They call themselves ‘Oban’s favourite hostel’

November 16th 2018

“Lovely town! Lovely Hostel!”, “Really cool place with great facilities.” “Such a great experience, this was the first Hostel I have stayed in which leaves everything else with a lot to live up to!”

favourite hostel’ at Backpacker’s Plus in, unsurprisingly, Oban. The visitor’s reviews on social media back this up

“Lovely town! Lovely Hostel!”, “Really cool place with great facilities.” “Such a great experience, this was the first Hostel I have stayed in which leaves everything else with a lot to live up to!”,

Oban is a great place to explore the islands or launch off into the Trossachs or the Highlands. The hostel’s got a funny and funky sense of fun, check out the gallery on their website to see for yourself – look at how they’ve given each of big comfy beds its own name!

But the feature that jumps out is their epic Sky Room! A huge open-plan social space running across the top of the building, loaded with squidgy sofas, pool and table football and about a million roof windows pointing up to the sky. Cool.
