This place was awesome! I was in Mull on a Rabbie's tour. Many of the other travelers opted to have the company book accommodations for them, but I chose to go with the hostel on my own. I am so glad I did! A lot of the other places in Tobermory are up on a pretty steep hill, away from the harbor. The hostel is right on the main drag, easily accessible to the grocery store, bars, restaurants, shops, distillery, and the view of the water. It had a large common room with books, maps, information about tours, and a television (if you want). The kitchen facility is excellent--two large fridges, a place for dry foods, two ovens, a large prep space, and a few tables that fit up to 4 people. The kitchen space has a great view of the water, too! Beds were super cozy and comfortable. I only wish they had posted on their website or Expedia that it would cost 3 pounds for a towel rental. I thought that was a bit steep. Also, showers have standing water and the temperature gauge is really sensitive. If I ever return to Tobermory, I will stay here again!

A thoroughly enjoyable stay
We loved the location of the hostel on the harbour-side. Our double room had a lovely harbour view. The hostel was run and managed very efficiently. The kitchen was particularly impressive with its recycling and sharing facilities, all to avoid wastage. There were new toilet and shower facilities. In Tobermory there was lots to do and plenty of eating establishments.

Revisiting the Youth Hostel after 45 years
still a good place to stay en route from Iona to the HIghlands, revisiting one of our locations of trips around the area in 1973 - all still hospitable, room with a grand view across the Harbour
