Great location. Great staff

Pros: Great location. Great staff
Cons: The doors can not be closed without slamming. Therefore their are doors slamming all night as people come and go.
Location: Perfect. Beach, pubs, food
I had toothache all weekend so my long weekend didn't quite work out. However I have stayed here before and would stay again and recommend to others

When you just need a bed for the night

I stayed here briefly overnight with 3 of my children. Check in was super easy, the room was clean, bathroom was clean, and the beds were comfy. Best thing was once we went to bed super early, we didn't hear any noise from any of the other people staying! Only problem is the check out time, I had to check out at 7, couldn't do it until 8, so just gave the keys to the night clerk and left without getting the $10 key deposit back.

Location location

If you are after an affordable and convenient bed for the night the bunbury backpackers is pretty good. I found the parking really handy too and the gate is locked at night so it's nice and secure. Late check-in is only downside but apart from that it's value for money.

Nice and close to the beach yet filthy

Nice area, place is a bit shabby and not looked after, very messy and unclean in kitchen and common areas.
