Lovely place -- helpful manager

One of the most helpful owner/manager in Australia I have ever met. It was a great time. The hosel is really nice and has a lovely backyard. Ok it could be a little bit cleaner but in compare with other hostels in Australia it is still one of the best.

Dirty

Showered at the place and they charged us (which is fine) however it was the dirtiest place we've ever seen. The owner was an absolute prick and the place looked like it hadnt been cleaned ever. The owner came in with his BMW, yet the place looked like it obviously hadn't been cared for at all. The only plus was the guy working for the place -- otherwise we hated it.

Brilliant

stayed at this hostel without reservation near christmas time dec. '06. sam the owner was cordial. very understanding. made room. and i guarantee if you are lucky enough to find his establishment you will never on any level be able to come home to wherever you're from without smiles and good memories. i miss it daily.

Busselton Backpackers is in a league of its own!! Sam the "director" is one of the most down to earth and funniest guys you will ever meet, he makes everyone's stay an enjoyable one with his friendliness and chilled out out look on life. Ok so its not the ritz but the energy that flows throughout his four walls is awesome. Its all about having fun and im counting down the hours til i return! Anyone who wants to experience the real australia must pay a visit, and i can guarantee you'll never want to leave.

This hostel has got the friendliest and coolest owner in all of Western Australia. It isn't the cleanest or most comfortable place I've been to, but still it's the best!!! Thank you Sam.

It is a small and cosy hostel comprising of 2 double rooms, a triple room, and three dorms which can sleep from 4 to 7 guests and an external caravan which can sleep up to 3 people. There is a communal kitchen and tv room, coffee and tea is complimentary for guests, an undercover bbq area in back with a wood fired bbq, three fridge freezers to store food and drink.

We also provide casual labour to the vineyards for those with working visas. Seasonal work is quite popular with backpackers and we can easily find picking and pruning work.
The hostel is small and cosy, the atmosphere is very homely, you can walk to the shops in 5 mins and walk to the famous 2km long Busselton Jetty in 10 minutes. By November 2003 the Underwater Observatory at the end of the jetty should be operational. The observatory will enable the underwater life at the jetty to be viewed from several platforms that go down to about 10 metres.
