I stayed here for 3 nights with friends in a 6 bed dorm. The room was fairly spacious although quite hot (no a/c). We had our own bathroom - shower was hot but slightly lacking in terms of power. The bathroom didn't get cleaned while we were there. The bar and restaurant was nice with really good food. No guest...

Another YHA to stay in - our own double room for a fraction of a hotel price - great kitchen - great guests - great owners. Wonderful eateries and shopping nearby plus loads of day trips on your door step. Perfect

Rooms are big enough for 6 people, and "private" bathroom in every room. But no toilet out of rooms. Free WiFi if you are yha member. Big kitchen, internet room. Just the housekeeper...does she know how to clean a room? I mean, it was full of sand when I checked in, and the next morning she didn't clean at all!...

We stayed here for 6 nights in a private double room and after the first night we considered leaving. There is a note on the door telling you that ants and roaches might be attracted to open food so don't leave it lying around and that they are attracted to the warm rooms when rain is about to fall. So...

A nice hostel, very friendly and helpful staff. Sadly I visited Exmouth at a really quiet time (Feb - my advice don't visit in this month wait until April - Aug), so the hostel was a bit quiet but that's my own fault. My only feedback would be that it advertises 2 pools but there only seemed to be 1,...

The hostel is adequate for a hostel - the rooms are large and kept clean, the kitchen facilities are great and again in a clean state. The common areas aren't as good, with the TV room very dingy, but there is a great communal BBQ area to sit around and meet people at. Overall given the limited options in Exmouth...

Stayed here for 2 nights at the end of March In a 10 bed dorm. The room was pretty small and the bath room was onsuite which was good until we all wanted a shower first thing in the morning. The room was very basic and dated. The kitchen was well equipped but had no lighter for the gas stove,...

Stayed in this hostel in December 2012. The room was small but en-suite with air condition and TV. We could also use all resort facilities - bar, restaurant, pub and swimming pool. Had dinner in the restaurant, great and fresh food. We also stayed for a couple of drinks in the bar, which was great option to have as there...

I have been there 3 nights. The place is nice, central and they have big BBQ. It is close to the "center" that is supermarket, restaurants and shops. Ah, it is also very close to the exmouth diving center. The only problem is that apparently is the place of the those who want to have a big Friday since it...
