6.0.Good.
  • 4.0.Fair

    Very noisy, hard to sleep due to guests coming and going late into the night and deliberating on the front veranda, right outside guest rooms, on what the door code was. Very broad mix of clientele.

  • 8.0.Very Good

    Very small hostel, most rooms are directly onto lounge or shower areas due to this you do get general noise eg TV, talking, doors slamming. This is between 8am -10pm outside these hours is hostel quiet time. So although good quiet time policy at hostel if you want to read or get away from noise in room, earplugs are needed. Great location to beach few minutes walk. Easy 10 min walk from or to bus station to get back to main Terminal for buses and trains. 10 mins walk to Coles or Aldi. Bunbury very easy to walk around. If using google for directions halve how long it says takes to walk places in general all closer then looks on map. Overall great place if you want to be near beach and walk everywhere. Just a warning only 3 showers, not a problem while I stayed but in busier time would be interesting! Pleasant stay.
