There was a friendly Staff to provide me some information for the tourist spots around Geraldton. Although it is a bit in an old style for its furniture, I am happy to stay here due to the free parking, clean kitchen and Spacious Room. There are no so many choices for the cheap accommodation in Geraldton. It is recommended.

Nice enough hostel but the rooms and showers areas were not particularly clean. Staff were rarely present, and reception was constantly closed. One issue I had was they did not allow late/early check ins. I got the bus from Perth which got me into Geraldton around 02.30. I called the manager the day before to make them aware, and was...

It was good place to stay at geraldton and also pretty cheap price as well. The location of this backpacker is the best, just in front of ocean. However, it was a bit noisy on weekend at night time. Except this, i strongly recommend that this backpacker is wicked.

"Wicked Stay" Thank you so much. We are glad that the noisy weekend didn't taint your stay. We do try and get our guest to be quiet after 11pm but sometimes they are having such a good time that they forget to turn down their voices- as the night gets older their ears turn down; now they just need to...

Nice hostel. We spent one night there. Clean double room opening on the verandah with a lovely view of the ocean. Friendly cat too. Nice outdoor area to drink/eat/relax in the shade. Thai restaurant next door offers meals for $12 to the hostel's guests - a bargain. All in all a nice budget place to stay. Check the Two Foreshore... More

Hi Thanks for your review of our hostel. We are glad you found our facilities and our CAT so nice and friendly. "Jed" the cat is very old and I really wish he could write his memoirs as I know he has witnessed many "interesting" things in his 19 year stay at the hostel- he is the hostels original "Backpacker"...

This hostel was fairly priced compared to other local options and the rooms were clean and the building tidy. The bathrooms were also clean and provided the basics required. Location is great and the staff were very nice. Only down side was that I was bitten by bed bugs a few times, but this maybe isn't a recurring problem, still,... More

We stayed there for 3 nights, really nice staff, clean rooms and bathrooms and a very well-equipped kitchen! City wifi may be used for free. They have a very comfortable TV room with heaps of movies to choose from. I can definitely recommend this place.
