Tobermory Youth Hostel

About About this youth hostel

Located on the main street, surrounded by shops, galleries, bars and restaurants, Tobermory Youth Hostel is one of the many brightly painted buildings sitting on one of Scotland’s most colourful and attractive harbours.

Perfect for groups, families and individual travellers, the hostel offers guests a range of accommodation from private rooms to comfortable shared dorms, many with enviable sea views. None of the rooms are en-suite, but ample shower and washroom facilities are available.

Guests can opt for a continental breakfast in the dining room, watching the fishing boats come and go from the harbour (please remember to pre-book), or take advantage of the well-equipped self-catering kitchen. 

WiFi access is free for all guests and other facilities include a comfortable lounge with TV and DVD player, excellent laundry, drying room, and a small enclosed garden at the back with off street cycle parking and a picnic table - ideal for morning coffee or lunch.

Parking is on the main street, but there’s also a car and coach park five minutes’ walk away at the end of Main Street. Currently parking in Tobermory is free.

Curving round a sheltered bay Tobermory is an ideal holiday location for wildlife watchers, hill walkers, seafood enthusiasts - and families. It’s also a great place to base yourself for exploring other areas of the island, whether on bike or on foot.

The hostel is also available for exclusive private rental.
