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.

I think this is a great place. I had a wonderful lil room, clean and comfy bed, owners are great, kitchen was wonderful, location across from the beach - the waves lulled me to sleep. Yes the floors are a bit uneven but they are ok. The bathroom was a tad dodgy but the toilets worked like toilets and the... More

Great backpackers in heart of geraldton and across the road from the beach. Glenys, Terry and Karin were all very welcoming and friendly as were all the guests. As a solo traveler, staying at Foreshore backpackers made my time in Geraldton awesome. Whether you are working in the area or travelling through Foreshore enables a good mix of the two.... More

Our stay here was dreadful, the floors are uneven and don't feel stable at the best of times, we could hear scratching in our beds (mice or rodent type) tried to ignore to roaches but it was hard, room had NO curtains, locks had been previously broken and replaced as evident by the left over locks and holes.

It is unfortunate that your experience at Foreshore was disappointing for you. I have looked into the matters- unfortunately the CCTV in the common areas near your room showed nothing of the reported scuffle. I have asked other hostel guests that were here on that night and was met with a blank questioning face as they too did not hear... More

Okay if your a back packer. Staff were very nice, helpful and polite. I found that my room did not reflect the cost $70 for a double. Even though the bedding was clean I could smell sweat through the pillow case. I was somewhat disappointed as I had just ridden my motorbike 450kms and was expecting more for my buck...... More

I stayed with a group of people in September last year and was impressed by the cleanliness and location of the place. Had a nice size upstairs t.v. room with foxtel-rare for backpacker hostels and it also had free internet which was great as so many hostels really rip you off with internet connection fees. Had a downstairs tv room... More

I stayed for three nights, and was very impressed with the room - it was clean, the fridge worked (and was quiet), and the bathroom wasn't far away. Sound of the waves a block away as I went to sleep was a nice touch! The owners and staff were friendly and helpful, and the place is very well located -... More
