We booked a private queen room and it was dated, but perfectly comfortable and clean. All of the staff we interacted with seemed annoyed that we were there and were not helpful. The facilities were not well maintained and the pool and bar hours did not overlap at all. Despite the fact that they said they were fully booked, no one was using the common spaces and the whole place felt abandoned. All of this together, it seems like the place is poorly managed.

We loved our stay here, it was clean on arrival, and had all the facilities we needed, price is reasonable and a great location, if you could add add a fish cleaning area near the laundry area that would be great, otherwise no complaints, Ali xx

A good hostel with your good facilities. I love that every room has its own shower and toiled to no midnight strolls. The internet provided is not good

My opinion of the hostel was formed at reception with an unfriendly 'welcome'. The facilities are adequate, with pub, restaurant and pool on campus and the excellent Exmouth Diving Centre at the back. The location is excellent with the IGA and local shops just a 5 min walk away. The bus to the airport can be booked at reception and the bus stop is in the driveway. Kitchen is adequate, worn and basic with the fridge i used refusing to stay shut. Not an environmentally friendly complex.

Good choice of hostel in Exmouth! Exmouth itself is a great gateway to Turquoise Bay and the Ningaloo Reef!! Nice pool area and good kitchen facilities! The staff are really friendly and chatty and make you feel at home - thank you so much!

The hostel is old motel style and quite dated. However the rooms are comfortable and clean with good air conditioning. The staff were helpful and the location is good. The downsides are mostly related to the kitchen which is very poorly equipped and the gas hobs are in significant disrepair. There was also loud music on the Friday night from the bar until quite late. Overall it’s a good place to stay but could easily be significantly improved by improving the kitchen.

Reception staff wwere veery helpful when i realised i had left an item on the coach and need to quickly contact the operator. 6-bed room was a good size but a few seats and a table would make better use of space. Individiual lockers for luggage would be good, or even just separate designated shelves. Exhaust fan in bathroom did not work. En suite b/r is good but need at least one communal toilet for dorm guests as with six in the room chances are high that b/r will be occupied.

Location is great. A mouse came into our room at night. Didn’t like the corrugated iron in room. No shelves for putting clothes on. Mattress was very good No bedside furniture
