Volunteering at Oban Backpackers was my first experience as a Worldpacker so I wasn't sure what to expect. I didn't have to worry though, because Kamila and the other volunteers made me feel welcome straightaway! The work was satisfying but not difficult, and the shifts were rotated so you weren't doing the same thing all the time. There was plenty of free time to go exploring in town and around, or hang out in the cozy common room in the hostel. Oban is a great base for seeing the Argyll coast and some of the western islands, and the town is gorgeous - definitely apply!

I really spend a good time here, Camila, the manager was super flexible, she helped to me with anything I needed.
The team was very kind and helpful.
Is a perfect place for to visit the islands, beautiful for walkings on the beach.

Our visit here was a bit frustrating. First, the volunteer accommodation is much lower quality than anything pictured here. Also, there were multiple times when two people were expected to clean the entire hostel (beds, toilets, showers, etc.) in 3 hours, which is a 4 person job. Finally, the manager while we were there did not contribute to daily tasks and could be deceptive and condescending. Oban was beautiful, and the hostel was nice enough (but could use better volunteer accommodation), but it would be a much better experience with a new manager.

I would not recommend my experience here. The work environment here was very unhealthy. There was little training/none at all for some shifts, but the current manager expects you to do things a very specific way with little to no guidance & then was upset when it isn’t done that way.It was very understaffed when we were there, and heard this was common. We were doing more tasks than what was meant for the amount of people volunteering. The staff room is not the rooms pictured here, it actually quite smaller and crammed. The place has potential but due to the manager our experience was not good

My 1st volunteering was simply amazing, I was very well received by Kamila, she is a lovely person, super flexible, lively, always willing to help, treats everyone very well, to the point that we feel part of a big family, whether guest or staff. The Oban backpackers team is wonderful, everyone is very patient, I arrived with very basic English and everyone helped me with my English. I really just have to thank you, the place is magical, there is a lot to know and do there, the people are welcoming, and the city is very beautiful. from the Oban Backpackers family.
Thank you all for everything
