The hostel is in a lovely location, its seconds away from the beach. The hostel is one of the better ones ive been to, they have 3 tv rooms so theres plenty of room to chill out with people. I stayed in a 8 bed shared dorm, the rooms are a good size get plenty of space and a bathroom.... More

I have been coming back for 4 and a half years...I'm not even a backpacker anymore but this place is so magical I can't stay away. I work near margaret river and work 6 on 3 off and every time off I come back. The people... More

I have stayed at the OBB many times during the last year and have always been happy and welcomed by the backpackers that were staying there at the time. I have left to go traveling many times and keep end up going back there because I've always felt at home there! The people are always very welcoming and can be... More

I spent over a year backpacking around and stayed in tons of hostels but never one as amazing as OBB. I met the most wonderful characters, both guests and staff and never felt so welcome and homely. It's like living in a big house with all your friends! There's a family vibe going on, everyone looks out for each other.... More

I wasn't sure what to expect when I came to Western Australia, whether I'd like it or just pass right through. The one thing that kept repeating in my head were the words from a traveling couple I'd met in Bondi Beach "Cottesloe Beach has this hostel right on the water that we stayed for months in, it was one...

Without doubt the best hostel i've stayed in. The staff are polite and personable, the rooms are clean and spacious, the residents are friendly and very welcoming. Its a home for anyone and everyone; whether you want to have fun with the other residents in the courtyard or have some alone time and watch tv. Kitchen facilities are beautifully maintained... More

This hostel is, quite simply, outstanding. The majority of the staff are extremely helpful (of course everyone has bad days) and can be approached about pretty much any problem, any time of day and night. The rooms are kept to a decent standard of cleanliness and personal space is respected. Lockers are provided in the rooms for extra storage and... More

This hostel is covered in posters advertising their "rules" for example, the hostel is an alcohol free place, if you want to drink go to the bar next door. Another poster, no alcohol in glass bottles, cans are ok.... Not if your a drink free hostel! The courtyard is full of people drinking and taking drugs, its not that far... More

I have never stayed in a place where other guests are so inconsiderate slamming doors, singing shouting screaming till after mid night most nights, stomping up the corridors! the doors to the room offer no sound protection because of the massive gaps underneath. and the ultra thin windows dont block any noise of the pub garden behind. drunk people and...
