Basic, just what you would expect from a back packers but this place is special, had a nice ambiance about it, met some nice people. Long drive to get there but good location, helpful owners, nice swimming pool and dogs.

We spent a very nice week on north to Perth till Exmouth, sleeping in beautiful hostels. Unfortunately the last we stopped in this awful... I don't how to call it, but for sure the worst I have seen before. Dirty with insects and in some beds also the eggs. There are no words to describe it. Don't sleep here.

I stayed here for 2 nights with my sister in a dorm. We arrived at 10pm (our estimated time of arrival when we booked, so we actually arrived on time). The office was closed and we rang to gain entry. The woman seemed annoyed with us for being late and first impressions were not good. The hostel itself was fine....

What an amazing 2.5 weeks here in Kalbarri at this family run complex. With a variety of room options, I was able to have my own space in a double room to write and rest, secure valuables etc. whilst also enjoying the company of other amazing travellers and staff when I wanted. Brilliant location just one street back from the...

This is YHA good standard. Clean and lots of nooks and cranies indoors and outdoors if you want to get away from everyone. The beds were comfy and not too many bunks in a room. Friendly welcoming dog is a nice touch. Kalbarri NP is worth checking out.

The whole hostel looks terrible. It seems like it's been left with not any kind of change or renovation for ages. It is not very clean either. The private room looked like an horror movie with frames falling from the walls. Kitchen is useless with no facilities or kitchenware at all. They give you a plate and a cup at...

Like all the Y's, this place is a gem, Comfortable, clean, spacious, great location, nice owners. Ideal for exploring the area, close to restaurants and shops, but with a superb kitchen for cook your own meals. Nice parking area as well

Bed mattress was uncomfortable, huge dents. Dog poo under clothes line and surroundings. Court yard and BBQ dirty and littered with junk. TV room has couches with no springs. Broken fire alarms in TV and TV room. This is illegal and dangerous. Owners plz note, there is a new second hand furniture shop near the butchers. I'm sure you'll be...

Unfortunately this is the Worst YHA I've ever stayed in when it comes to YHA's!! Surroundings that are old/well worn are one thing, but an unclean environment is another. Was welcomed by some room confusion and a very smelly fridge in the double room with the bonus of ants, it was removed and the owners were apologetic on a positive...
