Advantages: Budget prices (for Kununurra), pleasant internal courtyard with palm trees, clean rooms except where other occupants in a shared room happen to be messy, helpful and knowledgeable staff. Disadvantages: on many nights the central courtyard becomes a lively socialising place for younger guests - travellers and seasonal workers - from late afternoon till after midnight. All the rooms face the central courtyard so there is no way to escape the noise of loud conversation and music. Although management has a written policy that music must be turned off at 9 pm, one night-manager explained that this was interpreted as 'the music has to move to the verandah area' (about 10 metres away). In addition, on Friday nights, the pub across the road has live, amplified outdoor music till midnight. We cancelled our return bookings and moved to more expensive and much quieter accommodation.
