Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We stayed there one night as part of an organized trip with Autopia. The good points: the beds were comfortable, the kitchen well equipped and place was environmentally friendly. Also, it was surrounded with kangaroos which is great. The bad points: we struggled to find electric plugs to charge up all of our group members' cell phones/other electronic devices; at a minimum it would be good to provide an extension/multiplugs for each room. The staff was not very helpful and also quite rude on some occasions. Because of this I would hesitate to return in the future.

Easy check in, calm, spotless, spacious room with a fan and air con, clean bathroom/bedsheets. Was in a share house but it was completely silent at night time, slept great. Parking spot for a car, bbq and outdoor facilities all clean too.

Booked the upstairs apartment with balcony for one night. Great accommodation. One double bedroom and one twin. Everything very clean and kitchen extremely well equipped. Spacious living area and flat screen tv. Hostel is a bit tatty but extremely welcoming. Very good value for money.

The place was clean and the shared kitchen was well equipped with plenty of cutlery and 2 large fridges, had great great bbq facilities. Can do with a flat screen tv in the family room and the bathroom to get freshened every day as you pay more for the family room with private bathroom. The pool was a great facility and it was kept clean. Over loved the facilities offered there.

My friend and I stayed here for 1 night. The guy at reception was extremely helpful and nice and the room was clean, as well as the bathroom. A nice spacious kitchen with lots of shared appliances to use. An overall good stay.

Hate to be a moaning Myrtle, but… There is no room of requirement here to unfortunately account for the obvious flaws in this run-down hostel. No marauder map needed to guide your way to the amenities- follow the spiders. You can’t miss them. Catch up on the news from the daily prophet before you arrive – WIFI is scarce and will have you seeking out other WIFI-friendly venues. Inside the room we discovered used cotton ear buds in the bin - the haucrux you never want. To sum it up: Don’t park your broomstick here. Aragon and his many children have taken up permanent residence (in your room). Withdraw a little extra from Gringots and get yourself a cleaner place to stay, this whole place needs the cloak of invisibility.

It is a cheap place to stay for one night when you are travelling with friends. The building is old and there is a lot that could be improved, but it was OK for one night. Slept well and it was clean, that's most important.

No wonder the place is for sale! The entire place is neglected, run down and badly maintained. The place is dirty. Really dirty! It is old, out dated and needs a really good revamp. Find somewhere else. A tent would be better. DO NOT STAY HERE!

I was passing through Kalbarri and only stayed the one night. Carol and Joe were very friendly and had a single room for me at little notice. I enjoyed my stay and left some personal belongings behind which they posted to me, which was much appreciated. Wouldn’t hesitate to stay there again.

I have stayed in a number of backpackers but this one is really overdue for some love! Carpet is falling apart, paint peeling and hot water was on and off. The walls are thin so expect to hear EVERYTHING! It didn't feel clean or welcoming. Would not stay again.
