The hostel may be old but it makes up for it in charm. Bathrooms, kitchen & grounds are clean ( dam you Ben & that blower) best hostel... More

I stayed down here for almost 2 months and I witnessed a lot at the hostel. Although I had good times (mainly due to other guests) I found that the hostel was a bit of a let down. The manager was very temperamental and although he could be a great time, he could also be childish and quite blatantly rude.... More

If you are looking for a place to sleep you will be fine. We got a room for 5 people ensuite. The room was ok, they provide linen and towels, but the toilet was really bad - it was dirty and the water from the shower flows to the room watering the floor, (which was partly carpet covered), leaving the...

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Margaret River YHA for two nights. Ben was very accommodating when we needed to move our visit a day later due to illness, which we really appreciated. Check-in was a breeze. The YHA is located right behind the main road, very close to restaurants, shops, etc. Also a short walk from the shop... More

This hostel is so cute. In my life I have never seen such a cute hostel. The pool was so cute. The games room is so cute. The bar/ lounge is so cute. The soccer field is so cute. The long wood tables by the pool are once again cute. The wicker chairs are cute. Boodjihup is very cute. The... More

As it says in the title yha even though I'm a little older i didn't feel outside the click of other guests. I must say a lot of long term workers here . the rooms are dark and in need of airing the common areas are kept well day and night but its a hard job for those doing it... More

Please avoid this place at all cost, I put one out of five because I couldn't put 0, the manager is possibly the rudest person I ever met in my life. Definitely not YHA standard either, noisy and dirty. Terrible.

We stayed in two double rooms for the weekend. One had an ensuite shower room and the other did not, but we were over the corridor from the toilets and the bathroom. Our block had a separate kitchen from the main backpackers, which was well equipped enough for simple meals and was very clean. The whole hostel was fairly clean,... More

Stayed in the Boodjidup part of the hostel for three nights, had planned for one but there was so much to do in Margaret River. Room was very cosy, nice and clean, bathrooms and toilets are old could do with some new fittings may be some paint but was very clean. Kitchen area lets the hostel down its old needs... More

I should have checked on Trip advisor first. But I figured that a hostel run by the YHA would be well managed. Well, not so. Booked on line, but when we arrived the manager could not find our booking. Paid $87, no, really $88, we could not delete the "optional" $1 green surcharge. We booked a double with ensuite. In...
