The side entrance to the Jeremy Inglis Independent Hostel and the sight of the stark concrete stairs that confront you as you enter belie what lies ahead (beyond this, above this): do not be disheartened or deceived by this first impression, for inside (up the stairs) this is the most characterful and colourful and delightfully idiosyncratic place, the best place...

The hostel occupies what were probably several separate apartments in one building so to go from one section to another you exit the flat, go up or down the stairs, and into another part. It is in dire need of decoration and I never encountered such a lumpy mattress however if you look in the guest book you will see... More

We stayed four nights at the hostel and found it good value for money, clean and friendly and centrally located. It is not a spartan, soulless hostel, but full of character and tends to attract well-seasoned travellers - some stay there for several weeks and regularly return to the hostel. Terence is a very personable manager whose advice on where... More

This place was great! this is what a real hostel should be, if your after a clinical boring yha type hostel go elsewhere and leave this place to the people who will apreciate it! Yes so the decor is old and the bed sheets are mismatched and the rooms are like staying at your grandma's place, but thats is what... More

I've stayed here twice now with the Mrs and both times we have enjoyed exceptionally welcoming hospitality courtesy of Jeremy and his team. Comfortable rooms filled with character, excellent homemade jam for breakfast and very reasonable prices. It's conveniently close to the main strip as well.

Hostel rooms were small but adequate. Bathrooms were clean. Hostel is located in the center of town; very convenient. Kitchen has wifi & cereal & toast for breakfast. Price is 18 lbs per person which is reasonable.

I was stranded in the pouring rain in OBAN......and Terence was a blessing. I like the kitchen in this hostel very much. However, what made this hostel special was meeting Terence's dogs and Jeremy dog also.....(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Russkiy_Toy) Lovely men....

The only good aspect about this place is the price, 17 pounds per person in a double room. The hostel and the installations are very old, the kitchen is very dirty and the room's carpet needs a cleanliness! The bathrooms are old but clean and the owners are helpful.

We couldn't have hoped for a better Oban weekend experience and it was largely down to the warm, down to earth welcome we got from Jeremy and Terrence at the hostel. It's small, unique and filled with interesting reading, pictures and fresh cut flowers everywhere. The room we had was a really decent size, comfy and well lit. Every morning,... More
