    Great location. Value for money. Right next to the beach. Place is very clean and it's very good atmosphere. Only place to stay if you're stopping in Geraldton.

    A very great place ! Very spacious, clean, great facilities with modern and well equipped kitchen, nice chillout areas (two living rooms with TV and nice garden/backyard with benches, and parking safe space for your car! The staff is very friendly and helpful, opened the door for me late after official check-in time. It's very well located, just step out and you're at the beach! I felt very relaxed after my stay there, more like a hotel with hostel prices. Thanks! Would be my first choice again!

    Location is prime and the Owner and Managers are extremely courteous, friendly, helpful and obliging. It seems no request or question is outside the realm of possibility of at least being considered or resolved. The friendly family attitude they displayed is infectious and was readily mirrored by the travelers staying there and made our stay really enjoyable.

    The single room would've rated 100% for good value if it has an ensuite, like the Exmouth YHA. Otherwise, it's an awesome, comfortable hostel.

    Our stay in the Hostel in Geraldton was great, the owners are really friendly, the hostel is beautiful and is in a great location. We also loved the garden, thanks for that! The only thing we were struggling with, was the price. We could have been sleeping in another hostel for 5 nights for the same price, instead of two. The hostel is beautiful, but the prices are too high for backpackers, maybe because there is no other hostel in Geraldton. (This is also, why there aren’t too many backpackers)

    Such a cute little hostel. Lovely and quiet, just what we needed after a long drive. Right on the seafront you step outside and there it is! We didn't stay long in geraldton, however,if you're travelling through then this is the best place to stay! Staff were amazing; bubbly, polite and accommodating. Lovely rooms and very clean. All in all a perfect stay!

    The hostel was beautiful, clean and tidy. However we booked trough website, where it said reception was 24 hs open, and it actually wasn't. Apparently it's open until 20 hs. So we called and we waited for someone to receive us. And then the bedroom we had booked was not available, so we had to go to a more expensive one. The lady in reception was nice and helpfull, but we shouldn't be charged that extra amount as it was their mistake and not our. Breakfast quite basic considering the price
