  • Simple yet very welcoming "oasis" in the desert of the Goldfields region. It is neat, organised and very well maintained and managed. This hostel is perfectly located in the town centre, but tucked away from the noise and distractions of Kalgoorlie. Extremely welcoming staff. I highly recommend! :)

  • Fine for a cheap backpackers for a one night stay. Was woken up at 3am by a couple of guys watching soccer on their laptop outside my room (better connection there apparently). Staff member I dealt with (Tracey I think) was friendly. I'd stay here again.
