Close to main bus station. We stayed at female dormitory room. Room and bed is comfortable, small kitchen. It was actually a resident house which accommodates as hostel. A budget stay with less expectation.

The place is chilled everything you need and in a great location. If towels that weren't washed in $30 fabric conditioner isn't your thing then it isn't for you. Beds are single in dorms and yeah the usual but comfy. The place is humble and fun

The hostel is well situated. It won't take long to walk into town or to the famous jetty. It also provides free WiFi which is always a great plus for a hostel. Price is alright but the quality isn't that great. Yes, it is a typical backpackers, quite old and no five star hotel but you can still expect kind... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

“The dormitory next to the men toilet and showers is the quieter room, I think, because it's the farthest from the living room and kitchen.I have never been awakened (ok, my roommates were very respectful).”
