“Great Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2014

Had a fabulous time, met the locals, close to all emities, felt like a share house but had my own space. Safe and warm. Good company. Good location close to bottle O, Urban spoon is great for brekkie. Lots of fun little spots.

Having a really relaxing easter weekend at Phat Sams, feels really homely and fun. Fed the chooks and lazed in the garden. Beautiful part of the world and the variety of company couldnt be better. Style not essential, checkered welcome :) Simple and fun. Thamks you for the warm welcome. I will be back.

I didn't actually end up staying at this hostel but I did speak to the owner regarding work and he was EXTREMELY rude and clearly couldn't be bothered talking to me. My friends also had a bad experience with him when asking about work, they said he was very unhelpful and told them they might as well go home now-clearly didn't want their money for a room!

I stayed 8 nights. Big positive point: It's clean (kitchen, bathrooms, toilets, floors and tables are cleaned every weekday). Great outside area with tables and benches, couch, barbecue and pizza oven!
Ok, sometimes Sam wasn't here when new people arrived but he always appeared somewhen.
Quiet during nights except on Friday evening ^_^ ,our fault, sorry. Made some friends, enjoyed feeding the kittens. Beach 7min, Coles, Woolworth or Supa Iga 5min, kangaroos every evening 1 min! (By walk)
Owner weird and friendly ;)

Room Tip: The dormitory next to the men toilet and showers is the quieter room, I think, because it's the...

Sams Backpackers has it all. For Long term, short term or if your just passing through Busselton you can't beat Sam backpackers. A friendly Atmosphere sets the tone for a great stay. Located 5 minutes walk to the city center its central location and value for money accommodation is a must for all travelers. Daily cleaning by staff members keeps the hostel clean and tidy. Free Fresh farm eggs, Sams signature pizza nights and Free unlimited WiFi are added bonuses. Recommended to all.

Sam let us set up camp in his beautiful backyard. Lovely and peaceful with a couple of great trees to keep us shady in the heat! Sam, the owner, was great and made a fun weekend even better. Thanks so much for having us!
