If you're looking for budget accommodation that is relaxed and social, then this place is perfect. You have a bed to sleep in but the main attraction is the surrounds - a communal outdoor BBQ area is the perfect place to meet new friends, the beach is a short walk down the street and Kalbarri National Park is a short drive from town.

I stayed here for just one night and I'm glad it wasn't longer as my room was filthy. The room was a good size but the dust and stains on the carpet had been there for a long while by the looks of it and the stain on the carpet outside the bathroom was huge. It's a nice location but I wouldn't stay there again unless cleaning standards are improved.

An excellent place to stay for NYE 2012, the population of Kalbarri seemed to quadruple on the 31st Dec 2012. Nice friendly atmosphere - large outdoor BBQ area; great for socializing which we did - as a large tour group had just turned up (18+ ppl), run by no other than a Kiwi bloke... Met some great people here! Only negative comment was lack of A/C in the rooms - especially as it hit the 30+ degree temps!

Room Tip: Very friendly reception staff/owners, didn't mind working NYE 2012 to help us out!

We booked a 3 day stay however due to the cleanliness we left after the second day. Bathroom drain was blocked and water was backing up, mosquito's were throughout building, carpets were not vacuumed, yard was untidy, fan was unusable in room as it was so dusty, poor kitchen facilities and generally dirty! I do not understand high ratings as I have stayed in many hostels and this would rate as one of the worst. Only positive is the pool, but this area wasnot maintained or very clean.

Stayed here for 3 nights last week. Opted for a room to myself which was $70 a night. It was upstairs - can imagine the downstairs rooms might be noisier. Great location, very friendly and helpful staff. Only two toilets and showers in our block (some bigger rooms had showers too) but I never had to queue. Kitchen utensils lacking. Loved Kalbarri - happy to stay here again if I have another visit.

YHA is absolutely cheap accommodation, it is quiet comfortable to stay at YHA Kalbarri, clean, friendly customer service. The disappointing is toilet and shower. Toilet and shower is clean but its only one toilet and shower, even we are a big group (32 person) and stay for 2 night. long queue to take a shower.
overall, YHA is recommended for budget accomodation
