Been backpacking on and off for many years. This is by far the best backpackers that I have stayed in. Great staff, exceptionally clean, wonderful facilities. Pippa, the owner, goes out of her way to make the stay enjoyable.

Good facilities: Good kitchen with breakfast food, tea, coffee etc. Clean bathroom & room. Bed comfortable. Prices decent. Nice outdoor settings to eat or relax. Close to both foreshore one side, and main street the other. Lockup parking for security.

About
Description
Geraldton Backpackers on the Foreshore is not your average hostel and you are more than welcome to find out why! We are conveniently located in between the beach and the main shopping street with cafes, shops, More restaurants, takeaways and bars. A big supermarket is just around the corner. The newly renovated, more than 100-year old building where we are located is an attraction in itself and has a modern kitchen with oven, microwave and free coffee and tea. Free parking is available. We have cosy dorm beds available, as well as doubles, twins and single rooms. Plenty of space to socialize, like a lounge room with comfortable sofas to relax in while watching television. Or sit back in a quiet chair on the indoor veranda with a book and ocean view! The courtyard area is a great place to be as well and if you are lucky you can find some passionfruit in the garden!
