Stayed for 4 weeks; very cramped conditions in a bedroom with too many beds & not enough storage facilities. Staff are helpful. Long term residents have taken over in "their" bedrooms. Kitchen dirty most of the time, guests need to help keep it clean.

A basic but clean hostel. I booked at the last minute, and ended up with one of the last beds in the place. Near the front door. If you get a chance avoid that room, as everyone has to walk past top go out the door and some people are better at closing a door quietly than others. Even when...

Stayed here ahead of a trip to the dolphin discovery centre. It is very centrally located and has good catering facilities. The staff are friendly and it is a sociable place. The accommodation is a little basic but you'd expect that and the central lounge can be a noisy place late at night.

I have booked here for a month, while I am traveling and working, and so far I love it. it's a little nice hostel, 2 mins walk from the beach and from the town centre. The prices are quite convenient compared to the hotels and motels, and the quality of the place is extremely good, so I highly recommend it.

We had a good time at Dolphin Retreat in Bunbury. This place is great for young travellers on a budget and also for travellers who want to stay in one place for a couple of weeks. The common room creates a nice opportunity to meet people. Friendly staff was very helpful. Clean rooms and bathrooms.

We arrived on a rainy evening but the friendly staff's warm greeting immediately made us feel better. She was super helpful. She made sure we got everything we needed - plates and utensils for breakfast, towels, and she even gave us a map of Bunbury with places of interests highlighted, told us about activities at the hostel and where to...

The house keeper is just horrible. He keep the snooker's stick to play with his wife. He stole your plate and fork when you forget them in the kitchen then ask you for 2$ per missing object. He told me to leave the hostel 5min after my checkout at 10h05 (cause i wanted to wait until 12h for the bus...

The friendliness of staff and guests made for an enjoyable stay. However, The room was quite cold. The kitchen was quite small and wasn't very well equipped with utensils. The bathrooms weren't the best.

I stayed here for 3 months whilst working in Bunbury! Loved the staff, met some great people. Good location, not far from the beach. They have a great socialising area for all back packers, with an outdoor area and a games room. Great bars close by.

“The room was clean, a double bed, bunk bed style, underneath a single was fine. The room we had was just off the kitchen and a bit loud as it was an older house adapted into a hostal. ”
