About Oban Backpackers

Whether you’re passing through Oban on the way to the Islands, or staying for a couple of days and exploring historic and beautiful Argyll, the original Oban Backpackers is the place for you!

Our funky hostel is part of the World famous ‘Scotland’s Top Hostels’ chain and we look forward to welcoming you to Oban.

Description:

Translated from its Gaelic tongue to mean ‘small bay’, Oban is an idyllic horseshoe bay sheltered from the Atlantic by the isle of Kerrera. Also known as the ‘Gateway to the Isles’, this is the largest port in North West Scotland and boasts spectacular views across to the Hebridean islands. In particular, the view at dusk from McCaig’s Tower provides a sunset you are unlikely to forget. Like any small port, there is a lot going on in Oban; the bustle of fishing boats, ferries, yachts and sea birds make the waterfront a lovely place to be.

The Original Oban Backpackers is perfectly located to enable you to make the most of your time in Oban. Just a 10 minute stroll from the bus, train and ferry terminals, our friendly hostel has everything you will need after a great day out exploring.

We have a fully equipped self-catering kitchen that has everything you will need to cook your favourite meal and plenty of storage space and fridges available for you to use.

We serve an optional breakfast of cereal, toast, fruit juice and a freshly baked Scottish scone. You can have a 'wee bit of everything' for just £2.00 or simply prepare your own. The choice is yours!

Our funky living room boasts plenty of comfy sofas, a pool table, a fabulous real coal fire, loads of useful local information, games, free WiFi, an Internet Café Style computer and as much free tea, coffee & hot chocolate as you can drink! It’s a great place to relax and meet like-minded travellers so what are you waiting for?
