Our climate is warm, we do not have cold winters so you can swim all year round. Our hostel is located in a Heritage listed building, with ocean views from the terrace areas. We have two TV rooms, a fully equipped kitchen, pool table, outdoor garden alfresco dining areas, and security parking.

We are a very small family run hostel . The maximum guests is 50, however we are only at 100% capacity during the holiday weeks, so the work load is always manageable. We will always support and assist if the hostel is busy. You will have tasked assigned to you each day. We will welcome into our family, and we will ensure you have a wonderful experience. You will have the afternoon each day to explore our beautiful town.

I had an absolutely fantastic and fulfilling time at Geraldton Backpackers and I cannot describe enough in words how kind and generous my hosts were! I also felt very safe and comfortable living there as the hostel is really clean, organized and has good security. Pippa gives clear instructions and helpful guidance, and sets out reasonable expectations. On your end as a volunteer, you do have to put in good effort and honest work to help out with the upkeeping of the hostel but never did I once feel that the tasks were overly demanding or difficult, even if there might have been busier days!
