The Wandarrah Lodge is a great hostel with very very nice owners. The beds are great, had my best night since i arrived in Australia. At the night is very quiet so you can get some rest. The town centre is 20 mn walk from the Lodge. I liked the walk because i was in the car the whole day.... More

The location is great, I... More

We are regular visitors to Wandarrah Lodge and are so for many reasons! The friendliness of the owners Betty and Wayne are the major drawcard. The Lodge is immaculately presented with a very friendly atmosphere. Wandarrah is located close to the beach and a great walk in to town. We will continue to be regular visitors to Wandarrah Lodge and... More

The facilities itself are in a good condition. Kitchen is well equipped and bathrooms are clean. The lodge itself is on sale. That is probably the reason whythe lodge isa not busy. This (in combination with missing heaters inside the rooms) leads to rather cold temperatures inside the hostel. The owner lend us a heater but we are not allowed... More
