If you are traveling without a car and need a safe place to sleep for the night then I think this place would suit you fine. Check-in was very disorganized (reception was not available for the hours posted) and nobody told me the car park gets locked at night, so when I tried to leave early in the morning I...

The room was clean, a double bed, bunk bed style, underneath a single was fine. The room we had was just off the kitchen and a bit loud as it was an older house adapted into a hostal. This hostal had many young people working in the local farming area, the kitchen is small and was very busy, fridge was...

Located close to the centre (5' walk to the centre) this hostel offers clean rooms, spacious dorms, a kitchen with free breakfast (toast, bread, jam and butter) and lots of lounge-space. Staff is friendly and helpful. As almost in all hostels in western Australia, most guests seem to be long-term residents. Downsides: no lockers, wifi slow, only few bathrooms, no...

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.

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...

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.
