Friendly staff and clean room, but I hated the concept of renting plates, forks and knives. And, when I received mine, they were absolutely dirty. Bathrooms were not that clean. Reasonable price, good location.

The house keeper is just horrible. He keep the snooker's stick to play with his wife. He stole your plate and fork when you forget them in the kitchen then ask you for 2$ per missing object. He told me to leave the hostel 5min after my checkout at 10h05 (cause i wanted to wait until 12h for the bus... More

The friendliness of staff and guests made for an enjoyable stay. However, The room was quite cold. The kitchen was quite small and wasn't very well equipped with utensils. The bathrooms weren't the best.

I stayed here for 3 months whilst working in Bunbury! Loved the staff, met some great people. Good location, not far from the beach. They have a great socialising area for all back packers, with an outdoor area and a games room. Great bars close by.

Tip #1 Don't be put off by the outside when you arrive. I thought good grief as it is not your usual YHA, instead it is a little converted house which is surprisingly big inside. Apprehensively walked inside and was given a key (not card) for the room and paid deposits on individual cutlery packs and towels. Yes, rooms are... More

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!
