      Brandon K January 2017
    • This hostel is now quite dated and could do with some refurbishment. The staff could not be faulted however, and the service they provided was exemplary.
      Hugh K January 2017
    • Not an up-market five-star hotel of course, but high level of cleanliness. Very tidy and clean kitchen. Friendly staff. Situated 100m from the waterfront. 20-minute walk to the centre of town.

    • Nice location for exploring Esperance and Cape Le Grand National Park
      Nick S December 2016
    • I would definitely recommend this place. Awesome look over the bay. Beautiful walks along the coast. Just be prepared. If its cold dress warmly. This former hospital has no isolation!
      Antje N September 2016
    • Lovely stay, got a free room upgrade. Lovely to sleep to the sound of waves at night. Plenty of room with a view and amole parking.
