We only stayed one night because of an event in Bunbury. The room was clean but a bit smelly, might have been the carpet or the beds. Clean shared toilets. Friendly staff. Easy to find and easy to park.

Hostel is in a good location, has free wifi and is cheap. Staff are friendly, but the common areas and rooms are fairly crowded and seem to be occupied by long-term residents who have set up camp, a few are fairly noisy and obnoxious, lots of gay bum jokes in the common area and a condom in the guys dorm...

Friendly helpful staff, clean rooms. Excellent for backpackers etc. Location is great for beach and cafe culture. We weren't able to take advantage, but lots of activities available and the common areas were good. Would stay here again on a budget.

Stayed for 4 weeks; very cramped conditions in a bedroom with too many beds & not enough storage facilities. Staff are helpful. Long term residents have taken over in "their" bedrooms. Kitchen dirty most of the time, guests need to help keep it clean.

A basic but clean hostel. I booked at the last minute, and ended up with one of the last beds in the place. Near the front door. If you get a chance avoid that room, as everyone has to walk past top go out the door and some people are better at closing a door quietly than others. Even when... More

Stayed here ahead of a trip to the dolphin discovery centre. It is very centrally located and has good catering facilities. The staff are friendly and it is a sociable place. The accommodation is a little basic but you'd expect that and the central lounge can be a noisy place late at night.

I have booked here for a month, while I am traveling and working, and so far I love it. it's a little nice hostel, 2 mins walk from the beach and from the town centre. The prices are quite convenient compared to the hotels and motels, and the quality of the place is extremely good, so I highly recommend it.

We had a good time at Dolphin Retreat in Bunbury. This place is great for young travellers on a budget and also for travellers who want to stay in one place for a couple of weeks. The common room creates a nice opportunity to meet people. Friendly staff was very helpful. Clean rooms and bathrooms.

We arrived on a rainy evening but the friendly staff's warm greeting immediately made us feel better. She was super helpful. She made sure we got everything we needed - plates and utensils for breakfast, towels, and she even gave us a map of Bunbury with places of interests highlighted, told us about activities at the hostel and where to...
