I did not expect this place to be so good after seeing some negative reviews and very few pictures on the website. Please be assured that this place is a comfortable place to rest your head and be close by to the beach. The double room was spacious, well lit, clean and the mattress was comfortable. For such a price,... More

Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a great review and we'd love to have you back again! Apologies about the TV in the room - it only plays DVD's and we'll put a note to let folks know, in future. More

I have traveled in 14 countries and stayed in many a hostel. My experience with the Western Beach Lodge and its management is without a doubt the worst experience I have had. The condition of the hostel itself is not even close to how it is represented in the pictures here. The kitchen is tiny and it is very difficult... More

We're sorry you found WBL so unpleasant during your first weeks' stay and are therefore surprised that you were prepared to stay there again. We received online bookings prior to your 2nd arrival and had no option but to cancel your verbal booking. We tried to give you as much notice as possible. You have also included your complaints about... More

The owner had just taken over when I went there in december 2014. He's extremely friendly and helpful !! The dorm (6 people) was spacious and clean. There was plenty of room to put my stuff (hangers, boxes under the bed, shelf, etc). The kitchen was of a decent size and clean. The hostel is only 15 min walk from... More

I booked in for 2 nights and ended up staying a week. Exactely how I want a hostel in Australia to be like! More like a share house as people tend to stay longer, easy to meet people, social!

Awesome hostel that got a new manager just before I came down under. The hostel has a good location with a light walk to the beach and the shoppingmall. With a decent kitchen (it's gonna be redone later this year), good rooms and clean social areas. The manager is a hell of a guy and he and his wife is... More

Place recently taken over by new management and a number of upgrades happening. Very friendly atmosphere and a good mix of people that got on well (management and everyone worked together to make it like a big family). In a hostel there will always be the issue between those that want to party and those that need to work, so... More

Cheap accommodation near Scarborough beach, restaurants, bars and Coles grocery store. We stayed in a double room which was ok with a double bed on the smaller side, a fridge, a table fan and some space to put your clothes in. The place is a house converted into a hostel so the ambiance is very intimiate. If you're lucky some... More

We stayed at this backpacker for four nights. Location is in walking distance to bus stops and the beach so you don't necessarily need a car.
