“Legendary”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2012

Best backpackers on our journey through Western Australia. We stayed two times one night (in different rooms).
We were warmly welcomed and could choose the room we wanted to stay in.
Very nice and big double rooms. All in all, it was clean, well organized and a good equipped kitchen. We regret not to have stayed another night. It was really lovely.

Wanted just to stay a couple of days and 5 weeks later we are still here!
the day we arrived here; we were totally lost tired and confused. It was hot and soon easter. That means that it was very busy and almost full. we got a room:shower and could sleep in good and clean beds: They helped us with everything; took us in their family like everyone else; we felt like home from day one; and still do!: They have been fantastic; not just to us; but to everyone else who have been through this roads and stay a night or two or more: We can never give back the kindness they gave us; but we will forever be very thankful for how they took us in and let us be a part in this Backpackers family: And as we have seen it; we are not alone about this feelings: they help everyone who needs it; you feel like home; you feel like you are part of a big travellingfamily or group: The evenings here with fire and bbq; lots of funny stories; and we all feel peace inside us when we are here: one thing is for sure:: we will never regret that we jumped of the bus and walked to the Backpackers:: a fantastic time and it's sad that its now over. But we will be back; cause you cant forget the place and the people from here!

So about the accommodation: there are dorm rooms and private rooms available. All of them are with comfy beds, all lot of space and they are super clean! And you know how rare that is!

cheers for everything Suzie; Stevie and Brodie! You are the Best!!!

Room Tip: Rooms for families in the main house, as a backpacker the carriage is a must!

Searching for a place to stay in the area on our way up to kalbarri and everything I found was super expensive. Chose this place because it was the cheapest ($100/night for 3 of us in private room, shared bathroom). Had no idea it would be so great!!! Super friendly and welcoming owners! Stayed in the main house; rooms are all updated, nicely decorated and comfy beds. Is a dorm area which i didn't see but people stating there said was good. Several outdoor seating areas around the property to lounge. Would definitely stay here again!!!

... I only intended staying over for one night and three weeks later I was still there.

Superb location, fantastic atmosphere, and friendly owners.

Definately worth a stop over for all heading by Dongara.

Room Tip: spend the night in a nostalgic setting, by booking your rooms in the early 1900's Railway Sleepe...

we were traveling to exmouth from perth and came upon this place by accident. apparently they dont advertise. its only small but is really friendly and is just the right distance from perth. it really was a home away from home for us and we can definitly recommend it to other travelers.if you stay there , ask for the carraige.
