About Backpackers Plus
Our colourful lounge has loads of comfy sofas, a free book exchange, a pool table and board games galore (including giant chess); 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!). There's NO CURFEW - you'll have your own keys to come and go as you please.
And the rooms? SPACIOUS. The solid bunks are wide and high enough to store two sets of luggage underneath so even full rooms aren't cluttered. The beds are built-in and solid (no creaking and squeaking here!) and each has its own reading light and double socket to recharge your gadgets overnight - no more fighting with your room mates over the one and only outlet in the corridor! Bring your own padlock if you want the extra security of the individual lockers we have under each bunk.
Visit Scotland has rated the cleanliness of our Hostel at a stunning 96 out of a possible 100 points. Our whole hostel is cleaned every day and your bed will be made up ready for you to check in. Big fluffy towels are available to hire from reception. We have plenty of bathroom space too, with separate facilities for male and female guests (so we can all keep a bit of mystery)!
Our central location is within a ten minute stroll of the bus and train station, fish and chips, convenience store, the sea front, pubs and cafes.
We also offer private rooms in our neighbouring guest houses (twins, doubles, family rooms - some of them ensuite!), all with a flat-screen TV and the same free WiFi and free breakfast that our dorm-dwellers enjoy. Children and/or well-behaved dogs are welcome in our private and family rooms.
Don't forget to watch out for our special bargain nights!
We look forward to welcoming you to Backpackers Plus in the Old Church!
Maximum nights stay is 7 nights.

We've got rooms for everyone at Backpackers Plus; individual backpackers, big and small groups, couples, families etc.
We have small dormitories as well as private rooms (twins, doubles, family rooms) - some of which have ensuite bathrooms. Our smallest dormitory is a 4-bed room, and our largest dormitory is 12-bed. Our private rooms (all with televisions) range from single rooms, twin rooms, doubles up to a family room that sleeps 5. In total we can sleep 99 guests; all accommodation is centrally heated.
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.
Backpackers Plus is right in the centre of Oban, just off the main road and close to all amenities. We're close to all public transport (bus, train and ferry terminals are a 10-15 minute walk away).
