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

Called last minute for a room and got two bed immediately. Staff were warm and welcoming. Bed was soft and cosy. The other guests we're respectful and kept quiet with no disruption during the night. Pool table on good condition. Bathrooms were very clean, as was the kitchen. Though the kitchen could do with some utensils, spatula, ladle, etc.

After 2 years of staying one weekend per month in a Bunbury motel I decided to try something different because I missed having a kitchen. I have to say I've been surprised how nice this place is for a lot less money then I used to spend. I can't comment on what the dorm rooms are like, had been in... More

Terrible, I have stayed in backpackers all over the country and overseas. This was the worst. Starting at the room, I booked a single so I could sleep without snoring in my ear. So the first thing I smell is mould and urine. The bare thread carpet was wet and filthy. The room had 2 beds in it. I lifted... More
