A group of us, 3 travellers arrived mid-afternoon on a Saturday, all in our mid-twenties and world travellers who have spent our fair share of time in hostels abroad . Staff were friendly and the place was buzzing with seasonal workers, such is life.
The place however refused to calm down after 11pm (quiet curfew) and was outright atrocious. Drunken Irish louts acting like they were on a bucks night, despite numerous requests from guests and staff to quieten down. I was 2 seconds away from calling the police in Margaret River to make a noise complaint. I even heard fellow female guests whingeing quietly to each other that they ' had to work in the morning'. The noise did not stop till well after 3:30am.
Staff should have kicked them out. It is not fair to fellow guests. Other hostels have tight rules concerning alcohol on the premises. I think it was great that the place was so chilled, however perhaps this is to your disadvantage as I have never had such an unenjoyable hostel experience before in my life.
Pay the extra if you can and stay elsewhere. For your own sanity.
