I could be bias on this as I had just been to a dreadful hostel in Margaret River but this was a little Oasis. I had originally booked a dorm room but after having 2 sleepiness nights due to noisy drunken guests at other hostel I asked if I could have a single room instead. They didn't have one BUT... More

The location of the hostel is the best bit, small walk from both town and beach, good parking facility's aswel. The hostel itself however is well overdue an upgrade, everything just seemed worn or old, the beds were made of multiple pieces, shelving was pretty dirty and taken from someone's garage. The showers seemed ok, until I noticed the windowsill... More

It is a place for people with young souls no matter the age. The staff was very kind and helpful. It was easy to make friends there. Also, they provide information about outside activities and job offers. Besides, it has the best location: Close to the bus station, close to the CBD and close to the beach. Great!

I stayed in the dolphin retreat for close to 12 weeks. I was down in Bunbury doing my regional work to get my second year visa. The staff were very helpful, in giving you details as to where to go for a job. The hostel is pretty much a perfect size, not too big nor too small. There are quite... More

Stayed here just for one night in a single room. Room very small, and extremely thin walls - right by the door entrance, and I could hear everything going on around me! Common areas nice, but very old and worn. Shared bathroom ok, but annoyingly you have to walk through lounge to get there from your room. Location is good,... More

My 12 year old daughter and I stayed for a night in January. We were met with a clean, well run and inclusive establishment. We really enjoyed the central location. We walked to the beach, around town, along the boardwalk and up to the outlook. Bathrooms were clean and we enjoyed the toast and coffee before heading off to Dolphin... More

If you like being surrounded by drinking, drugs, and theft, this would be your place. Anything is fair game--food, clothes, cell phone chargers, etc. Forget about any rest because you will be lying awake hoping that no one steals anything of yours. The common areas and bathrooms are dirty. Many of the lockers don't work or can easily be broken... More
