    • We had a very enjoyable stay at Bunbury YHA so much so that we have decided to stay a couple of extra days at the end of our trip.

    • The breakfast was very limited, the bread was not nice at all. The accomodation that we got was fine except for the sand that i found in my bed and the mattress was very fine and old.. Not comfortable at all
