This YHA is a good location with good facilities except if you are unlucky and get one of the beds that could do with some renovation...The kitchen and dining area is lovely in the shaded outdoor area and the indoor small dining is also well designed.

Sorry the bed was not good but not having your name and which bed you slept in its difficult to fix it. When you have a problem like this please let staff know so it can be fixed. We will try to find the bed you had out of the dorms that were in use that night. Thanks for your...

For this location you should distinguish between the money you're paying and the expectations you have. In general it's a cheap location which is located at a central place in Kalbarri. It's not the cleanest hostel but it's probably one of the cheapest places in Kalbarri. The owners are very friendly and can give you lot's of information. If you...

We were stranded in Kalbarri after our car broke down and Kalbarri YHA cane to our rescue. Being backpackers and low on money we were allowed to sweep down the outside area for a free nights accom, which was great!! They also have fishing rods you can take out (although we only caught some bubble wrap!) Wouldn't change anything and...

On arrival, Joe gave us a map and highlighted all the things to see and do, including where to get food. This was so helpful, and gave us a great selection of things to see in Kalbarri. We checked in late, and only stayed one night, but hostel was comfy enough. Unfortunately there were some crazies in the hostel during...

To begin with, I only stayed here one night (and arrived quite late at that) so this review is purely based on the 11 hours I spent at this backpackers. We didn't sleep as there were a group of other backpackers having very loud conversations in the main lobby of our dorm. Then one of my roommates decided to return...

Basic, just what you would expect from a back packers but this place is special, had a nice ambiance about it, met some nice people. Long drive to get there but good location, helpful owners, nice swimming pool and dogs.

We spent a very nice week on north to Perth till Exmouth, sleeping in beautiful hostels. Unfortunately the last we stopped in this awful... I don't how to call it, but for sure the worst I have seen before. Dirty with insects and in some beds also the eggs. There are no words to describe it. Don't sleep here.

I stayed here for 2 nights with my sister in a dorm. We arrived at 10pm (our estimated time of arrival when we booked, so we actually arrived on time). The office was closed and we rang to gain entry. The woman seemed annoyed with us for being late and first impressions were not good. The hostel itself was fine....

What an amazing 2.5 weeks here in Kalbarri at this family run complex. With a variety of room options, I was able to have my own space in a double room to write and rest, secure valuables etc. whilst also enjoying the company of other amazing travellers and staff when I wanted. Brilliant location just one street back from the...

This is YHA good standard. Clean and lots of nooks and cranies indoors and outdoors if you want to get away from everyone. The beds were comfy and not too many bunks in a room. Friendly welcoming dog is a nice touch. Kalbarri NP is worth checking out.
