Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Backpackers Plus, Oban, Argyll and Bute, sleeps 2-47 in 20 bedrooms.
Backpackers Plus in Oban offers a great base for groups exploring the west coast of Scotland, or travelling on to the Hebrides. We also welcome families and individual travellers.
At Backpackers Plus there are 3 different buildings with a range of dormitories and private rooms, en suite or with shared bathrooms.
The main building, a converted church, can accommodate up to 47 people in beds in 7 shared dorms. The rooms have different sizes and are all with shared bathrooms.
All our shared facilities are on 1st and 2nd floor of the main building, reception included. Shared facilities include equipped kitchens for guests' use and areas for sitting and dining together. The main lounge has a pool table and other games are available. The building has a happy and cheerful vibe and is usually pretty busy.
The private rooms are allocated in 2 different buildings (each with 6 or 7 rooms and each sleeping up to 19) with a quieter and more relaxed atmosphere:
- Private rooms with shared bathrooms are just around the corner from the main building
- Private en suite rooms are about 150m up on the road

A continental breakfast is included in the price per person.
