About the Hostel
The original Oban Backpackers is situated in the heart of Oban just a 10 minute walk from the bus, ferry and railway stations. Our central hostel is perfectly located to enable you to experience all that Oban has to offer without burning a hole in your wallet!
We offer dormitory style accommodation within our 7 hostel bedrooms. Our smallest room sleeps 6 people and our largest sleeps 12. We have wide, comfortable, spacious bunk beds, and they come made up with fitted sheets, duvets and 2 comfy pillows so there is no need to bring your sleeping bag. Our showers are powerful with loads of hot water and if required, you can hire a towel from reception.
Our fully equipped self- catering kitchen has everything you will need to cook up your favourite meals and there is plenty of storage and fridge space available for you to use.
It’s such a relaxing place to stay and unwind, with its big cosy lounge that boasts a real coal fire, pool table, comfy sofas, free tea, coffee & hot chocolate, free WiFi, musical instruments, games, book swap and loads of info on the local area. It’s a great place to meet like-minded people and although you might think you’re only staying one night, you’ll end up staying three or four – it’s that kind of place!
In the evenings, if you want to enjoy Oban’s night-life our staff can point you in the right direction.
The Oban Backpackers staff are a friendly bunch who know the surrounding area like the backs of their hands and are willing to help so don’t be shy! Come and have a chat at reception and we can make sure you make the most of your time in Oban.
