About Backpackers Plus

Welcome to Backpackers Plus... we've got lovely friendly enthusiastic staff that are here to make your stay happy, comfortable and memorable. We're backpackers too, so we strive to make our accommodation a welcoming home-away-from-home with creature comforts you wouldn't expect for the price!
Take advantage of our free computers/WiFi, free breakfast, free all-day tea/coffee, clean cosy rooms (dorms as well as private rooms - twins, doubles, family rooms - some of them ensuite!), cool communal areas with lots of character, strong hot showers, comfortable beds, and possibly the most well-equipped self-catering kitchen you'll find in a hostel anywhere!

Our colourful "Sky Room" lounge on the top floor of our beautiful converted church building is perfect for socialising. It boasts incredible views west over the mountains and islands and has everything you need to feel right at home; loads of comfy sofas, a big kitchen and plenty of seating for groups to cook and eat together, a free book exchange, a pool table and foosball table... the perfect place to unwind with a dram of whisky after a day exploring, or share a beer with new friends (or old friends over Skype!).

Our location is right in the centre of town, a stone's throw from the waterfront and minutes from the best pubs, shops and restaurants. Get amongst the stunning mountains and islands, just a short walk from our front door.

Come and enjoy all that Oban has to offer; castles, ceilidhs, distilleries, fishing, hiking, biking, lochs, mountains, islands, boating, friendly pubs, fresh seafood... and so much more!

All beds come made up for you with linen, duvets and pillows. Private rooms include a towel per person, and for dorm-dwellers towels are available to hire for £1.
Breakfast is included free of charge for everyone. We provide a laundry service to our guests; £4 for as much as you like washed, dried, folded and ready for the morning. All rooms have access to a very well-equipped self-catering kitchen; no blunt knives or pans with missing handles here! Bring your own basic ingredients then help yourself to our herbs, spices, oils and condiments to dress up your meal into something as flavoursome and fancy as you please.

Dogs and children are welcome in our private rooms.

Our whole hostel is cleaned every day.
