If you are looking for a budget, temporary place to stay in a convenient and quite section of Karratha with very good atmosphere and a bunch of, mostly young, international and friendly people, stay at Parkby Lodge. The place is clean, and managed by an extremely accommodating, friendly and helpful guy, Dean [--]. The guests seem to respect each other... More

Proprietors treated me like a welcome relative and were administratively organized. I intended to stay two days but took such a liking and was a bit road-weary so stretched out the residency to a full week. Price was reasonable and clear Wi-Fi free. Free hosted Sunday night BBQ that all residents turn out for - plenty of left overs for... More

The managers, Dean and Eva, really made the place great! It was more if a bed and breakfast feel than a backpackers, and they were so honest and welcoming. The people that stay there are respectful and fun, and it seemed like a safe family vibe where everyone looks out for one another, following the fine example of the managers.... More

Great location near the shopping centre. Free Barbecue apparently every weekend, which was great because I stayed there when it was on. The place is clean, and management are extremely accommodating and helpful and really enjoyed my overnight stay.

Parkby Lodge is absolutely brilliant! The managers, Dean and Eva, are the friendliest people I've met in a long time. You immediately feel welcome and the vibe is so cruisy that all the people staying there hang out and do fun stuff together. If you are not into that kind of thing this is still ideal, mostly because of the... More

Mainly you go there for one purpose only - work. The bed is clean, it works, there's nothing to do, there's a tv, there's beer, that's it. Nobody comes to Karratha on holiday, and nor did I.
