It started good with a nice clean dorm room. It went on with great kitchen facilities. The two well maintained tv rooms with plenty of dvds and foxtel, along with great people did the rest. A nice 5 dollar barbecue with meat included on Friday and free pancake breakfast on Sunday. Top hostel. If I were them I would put... More

I only had time for one night this was my only disappointment, great old building with lots of character, clean and tidy, good facilities little nooks and crannies if you want some quite time. So enjoyed the bath and read for ages big old cast iron style, would recommend the foreshore as a place to stay

Stayed at Foreshore Backpackers for about a week in April. The location is perfect - just cross the street for beach and ocean and staff is quite nice and helpful. Facilities are quite okay, nothing special, but some rooms had issues with bedbugs and on the couch in the TV room some bedbugs were spotted. Kitchen is rather small, pool... More

We hired two double rooms at $70 each so $35 per person. The one rooms fridge didnt work at all. Our fridge was so loud it made it impossible to sleep. Our bedsheets were dusty and had a brown dirt patch. The beds were old, creaked everytime you moved and dipped in the middle. I think the dorms would have... More

Stayed here for one night on our travels up north to Exmouth. Room was clean and bed was comfy. A little noisy from the road out the front and no windows to shut only wooden doors to try to block out the sound. even so, compfortable, clean and cheap accomodation. great location accross the road from the beach.

The backpackers is arguably the best location in Geraldton city. The shared room was very well priced. Not much atmosphere and back area a bit of a dogs breakfast. Recommend it for location and price. Would stay again if more to do there.

Cheers. We appreciate that people take time to write a review on our facility and are trying to improve our facility every day. We do run night activities at the hostel and am sorry that you felt the atmosphere was DEAD here.

I was very happy about the price, as I was on a very limited budget, Staff were helpfull. My big complaint was, that I wasnt informed that the rooms, might have moquitos, sandflys, Midgy flies or possibly bed Bugs, and I didnt get a decent nights sleep for the fortnight I was there. Had I been told, I would have... More

As a professional backpacker, Bed bugs do come into alot of accomodation facilities carried in on their unknown mode of transport ; that is YOU the backpacker; and some decide to... More

One of the few backpacker accommodations in Geraldton, did drive about looking for others but no luck. Reception was quite casual - they opened up when we checked in. Rooms were ok - no A/C (which may have been required due to the warm climate). A few noisy fans to keep the room cool (didn't really work too well). The... More
