No air con on rooms only a smell of vommit..very small and dated bathroom much like the kitchen which didn't even have an oven. Would have had more space and comfort if I was in a one man tent...

The hostel is ok. You have free breakfast - so you can safe a little bit money. I stayed there a few months and it is a good place to meet people. Great area. You have to walk just 200m to the beach and in 2 min you are in the centre.

I found the room (sole use) room was comfortable but besides the lack of a sink was fully functional; they had even put a heater inside to counter the cool evenings. One thing I will mention is the hostel began to shut down around 6 or 7 with a duty caretaker coming on who could only be contacting in case... More

Very warm welcome from really friendly and helpful staff. Didn't find any of the problems that some of the other reviews mention. Free WiFi voucher for booking online, towel, lollipop, cake and bread. Plenty of space in the dorm with lots of shelves. It was quiet at night and a super comfy bed, I did not want to get up...

We found the inn when we decided to go see the dolphins in Bunbury. My boyfriend and I had our own room and it was pretty interesting. I feel when you go to a hostile, it;s much more about the experience, not the amenities. We paid $60, had nothing stolen and were left alone. It wasn't bad at all.

We were pleasantly surprised when we came to stay at this hostel. We read a couple of negative reviews but didn't find any of the problems mentioned. The staff were really friendly and helpful when we arrived, and we immediately felt welcome. The room and the bathrooms were clean and there were two shelves per bed to keep your things... More

crammed rooms, terrible beds, unfriendly staff and a disgusting authoritarian boarding school vibe. Pretty ridiculous was the 10$ dishes deposit. Staff was extremely adamant about the 10 AM checkout time, when we got dishes at 9.25, we were warned that we only have half an hour left… but then they started cleaning the shower from 9.15 to 9.45 so that...

The rooms were cramped, the shared facilities were dirty, the wifi (extra cost) did not work properly, the staff were not friendly, and there was a bad atmosphere at this hostel. I would not recommend it to anyone and I would never stay again.

I've lived her 4 weeks in 2012 and I have to say it's been one of the best hostels I found in my 8-months trip. The position is really good, like 40 meters far from the beach and from the Main Street of the town, so you are quiet but at the same time really close to everything to do... More

In Sept. I booked 2 nights and stayed 3! This place is just like staying with family, very comfortable, friendly and no fuss. Although a little worse for wear in some areas, the dorms, bathroom and kitchen are kept very clean and tidy. Staff friendly and respectful of guests needs. Loved the secure car park, central location and trivia night... More
