“Excellent service, friendly people, great environment”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

The managers, Dean and Eva, really made the place great! It was more if a bed and breakfast feel than a backpackers, and they were so honest and welcoming. The people that stay there are respectful and fun, and it seemed like a safe family vibe where everyone looks out for one another, following the fine example of the managers. I would highly recommend this place to anyone and would not hesitate in staying there. When I had a crisis, they really helped me out & were lovely, and so professional, but ultimately more like friends than managers. Thanks so much!
Tony, Perth

Great location near the shopping centre.
Free Barbecue apparently every weekend, which was great because I stayed there when it was on.

The place is clean, and management are extremely accommodating and helpful and really enjoyed my overnight stay.

Parkby Lodge is absolutely brilliant! The managers, Dean and Eva, are the friendliest people I've met in a long time. You immediately feel welcome and the vibe is so cruisy that all the people staying there hang out and do fun stuff together. If you are not into that kind of thing this is still ideal, mostly because of the high level of respect between the occupants. You stay quiet at night so people who have work early in the morning can sleep. No one touches or 'borrows' your food or drinks without asking you first. From day 1 I felt completely fine leaving my brand new Macbook Pro in an unlocked room. This place definitely made an otherwise tedious trip to Karratha absolutely amazing!

Mainly you go there for one purpose only - work. The bed is clean, it works, there's nothing to do, there's a tv, there's beer, that's it. Nobody comes to Karratha on holiday, and nor did I.
