Tobermory Youth Hostel is located in the centre of town on the main street. It is one of the many brightly painted buildings in Tobermory's harbour (the red-pink one). Tobermory Youth Hostel is surrounded by shops, restaurants, art galleries and the busy harbour with boats coming in and out all day. It is also famous as the location for the popular BBC children's show Balamory. Tobermory Youth Hostel is an ideal location for families, sea food enthusiasts, marine wildlife watchers and is also a good base for exploring other areas of the island, whether on bike or on foot. Wi-Fi during your stay: We do our best to deliver a free Wi-Fi service but apologise that connectivity, particularly in our rural locations, can be intermittent due to the level of our current broadband provision along with high usage when the youth hostel is busy. Please be assured we are endeavouring to improve where we can. We thank you for your patience and understanding.

Our stay was good overall. The location was amazing, right in the centre with views to the sea. It was clean and comfy beds. The kitchen was spacious and well equipped But I do think it's overpriced, as the facilities are not up to what they charged. It needs a serious renovation as I've stayed in better hostel with a much cheaper price. If I ever come back I would probably look for something different.

A nice enough hostel in a great position in Tobermory. It wasn't quite up the standard of the other hostels and bunkhouses we stayed in on our trip around the Hebrides. Kitchen was well equipped and spacious as was the common room. Rooms themselves were quite small and the bedding was quite cheap. Only male showers were on the ground floor passed reception which was inconvenient.

The view from the 5-bed dorm room was great and you could hear the sound of the sea during the night. That was great!! However, not really a young people hostel, a bit overpriced and not the friendliest staff. Especially compared to the hostel in Oban we stayed in the previous night, it was way more expensive and less enjoyable. I would recommend it if this is your most budget option.

Stayed for 2 nights and had a really pleasant stay (was really my first experience of a youth hostel...and I’m not ‘youth’!). Stayed in a twin room with amazing views over the harbour. Room 6 is the best twin. Right beside the ladies toilet and showers. Rooms can be a little cool at night, so bring warm jammies :-) The kitchen is better than I expected with some bits and pieces for breakfast in the morning like coffee, cereal, butter and jam. The majority of things you get yourself and place them in clearly marked boxes for your room. I liked the set up. The lads didn’t like the location of their toilets and showers (downstairs), but they managed. Will go back again.
