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.
