      Hostel seems a bit run down and needs a good clean.
      Staff could have been more helpful and friendly particularly for a tired single traveller new in town!
      Facilities OK, good size communal area. Good location. "Free" Breakfast very poor, you need to put deposit down for cutlery and plate/bowl etc, and provide your own milk. Waste of time for me as only staying 2 nights. Doesn't even come close to other hostels I've stayed in. But I don't know what the comparison is like with nearby hostels in Perth.

      Nach drei Tagen im Südwesten von Australien sind wir weiter nach Bunbury aufgebrochen. Dort wollten wir eigentlich Delphine in der Bucht beobachten, leider waren wir aber dafür zeitlich zu spät. Diese sieht man nämlich meist zwischen 8 und 12 Uhr in der Koombana-Bucht zusehen. Naja, so haben wir den Tag gemütlich ausklingen lassen und nichts …

      On the morning we were due to get the train we bought the Sunday paper and found our interview was briefly mentioned - see the attached photo. Upon boarding the Indian Pacific later that evening we found lots of complimentary copies, so grabbed a few for our scrapbooks. The article mentioned that the pavement temperature during the pageant was a...
