Fine if you are a long term resident or desparate

The upstairs bathrooms need a mjor overhaul - they may be cleaned each day but it doesn't make a difference. The hostel may advertise as offering loads of facilities but we were not told about any of them. when checking in were not told about free breakfast or lifts to the bus stop. Generally the staff we encountered were not that helpful. The rooms are expensive for the quality (we had a double) and we only stayed here as the Kimberley klub had no rooms. I wish we had payed a little extra for a motel. There may be a good atmosphere for long term residents but this means that people only staying for a short time miss out.

Friendly clean and a good place to stay

This b/p is on the whole a good place to spend a few days. There are pretty good facilities (internet, kitchen etc) and the rooms are clean and generally in good repair. some of the communal areas need updating which appeared to be happening whilst we were there - new ceiling fans in the lounge. Although this is a 'workers' hostel, the people and staff are friendly. Our main criticism would be that the office has some random opening hours and it is not always easy to find someone! We would recommend this hostel.

Double 'motel' rooms are lovely

We were very confused by this hostel. We phoned 'Kookaburra' but ended up here?? We had a 'motel' room which was lovely - very clean and tidy with own kitchen and bathroom at a very reasonable rate. The rest of the hostel needs a little work - limited washing machines and the communal areas need work. If you stay in one of the motel rooms (some are 4/6 share dorms) then it is a good place to stay - not so sure about the main building!
