It's like a big family, good atmosphere, sharing good time. And amazing BBQ with Gonzo! Beds are confortables, facilities are clean and kitchen is big enough. Don't hesitate, come and have a good time here!

We found this laid-back hostel on our way to Broome and stayed there. It's a really nice hostel with great family atmosphere and friendly people. It has everything you need in the heat up here. We absolutely enjoyed our stay and definitely recommend this one!

We stayed in Karratha in mid-March and found this hostel just on Google. We showed up at around 9 pm but we're still able to get ahold of the owner! His name is Terry and he was very accommodating and willing to answer our questions even that late. He gave us an excellent room and gave us pamphlets for Karijini... More

I found this place to be a godsend after travelling 900kms. Arrived late but was no probs to give me a cheap room for the night. Bed was comfy with aircon. Showers were clean. Nice outdoor area & pool. Owner was lovely & friendly...cost $35...good place to stop overnight to recharge the batteries :))

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.

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.
