“Best in Southwest”
Reviewed 1 November 2011

Four of us rode folding bicycles on a trip from Augusta to Busselton and decided to stay in YHA hostels throughout the trip. While all were fine, the Dolphin retreat in Bunbury was the best of the bunch. Brilliant location combined with friendly staff made our two night stay here after a long ride memorable.

Room Tip: Try to get a room away from the common areas if you tend to sleep early (this would apply to any you...

Although the hostel is run down and basic, the room and bathrooms are clean. The town does not receive many visitors at all times, therefore do not expect the place to be packed.
Bunbury town center is all within walking distances. The location is central.

It's all pleasant enought, but a bit 1980s in this YHA.

the rooms and kitchen are clean enough, and there's a nice little sitting area outside at the back of the hostel, and the location is pretty good too.

it's just that - like all suburban WA - it's a bit depressing! one of a row of bungalows, with 80s decor.

staff are pretty friendly though, and try their best to liven things up with video nights etc, in what is essentially a little suburban hostel in small-town Oz.

having said that, our dorm was quite nice, and the bathrooms were clean, and the other guests tended to be friendly.

not sure i'd bother going to bunbury again, but if i did i wouldnt necessarily rule out staying here.

p.s. if you're looking for dolphins, better to head to monkey mia. we were in bunbury for 3 days and didnt see a thing.

  • Liked — Nice back garden area, with a games room
  • Disliked — the fact that it's in bunbury!!
