Margaret River Backpackers YHA
Reviewed 6 April 2014

Stayed here whilst the Margaret river pro surfing competition was on, definitely one of the best hostels I've stayed in. The staff were lovely and very friendly, it was super clean and the rooms were a nice size.
The only tiny downside was that there is no proper oven just a microwave oven thing but apart from that I would defo stay here again

It's a nice hostel, clean and everything. The management are helpful, the room ready when you arrive. The only(bad) thing is the noise policy and alcohol on the desk... And you need a car if you really want to enjoy the area.

Hello,

Thank you for taking the time to review our hostel. It sounds like you enjoyed your stay which is always pleasing to hear! I'm glad you noted our noise and alcohol policy. We certainly want everyone to enjoy their stay with us, so we believe it is fair to have an 11pm curfew so those people who want to sleep are able to do so. We hope you visit Margaret River again in the future!

I stayed here for two months whilst completing my regional work. The hostel is cleaned to a high standard every day and bed linen and bathrooms are paid particular attention to. You can't make noise/drink outside after 11 which was perfect for me as a worker. There are places to go if you want to continue but it generally encourages people to go to bed. There is free wi fi/tea and coffee and the manager is very helpful with job advice and knowledge of the local area. I would definitely return here. Made some lovely friends and have lots of great memories.

I stayed here while I did my regional work in Margaret river so I stayed on and off for over 5 months. It's in a perfect location to town, Ben the manager is brilliant and knows so much about then local area so it is nice to actually get decent advice on things to do there. It is a working hostel so there are rules which are sometimes hard to abide (no alcohol n noise after 12on weekends) but it was certainly good during the week as most of us had early starts during the week. I have some of my best memories being there and I made some amazing friends and I cannot wait to visit it again when I return to oz! Keep it up guys!
