Geraldton Backpackers on the Foreshore

Geraldton is a coastal town on the Coral Coast of Western Australia.
The beach is at our back door, you will be within walking distance of all shopping requirements and Geraldton's many attractions.
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. Your duties will include, but are not limited to, housekeeping duties, linen changeover in rooms, cleaning of rooms, vacuuming, damp dusting, cleaning bathrooms, vacuuming hallways and foyer areas, cleaning the kitchen at night, sweeping outdoor areas and laundry. We will welcome you into our family, and we will ensure you have a wonderful experience. You will have the afternoon each day to explore our beautiful town.

Pippa was very welcoming and it’s 3-4 hours of work a day (cleaning the rooms, bathrooms, and kitchen). Roughly a 3 hour shift in the morning cleaning the rooms and then about an hour every other night to clean the kitchen. The location is great (right on the beach) but be prepared that there isn’t much to do in Geraldton. Also be aware that the day you arrive will count as a day off so I only ended up having two proper days off in my three weeks (on the day I arrived I had over an hour showing me around/going through expectations and then over an hour being trained and cleaning the kitchen).

Really clean and nice hostel. You clean twice a day (at 10 am and again at 8 pm most nights) it kinda break up the day so you don’t have much time to explore. Geraldton is a quiet town especially with no car. The hostel is also very quiet and doesn’t have a lot of backpackers

Sophia only stayed 12 days, so she didn't get to experience the hostel when it is busy. Our hostel is located in the centre of the city and is walking distance to 12 attractions, also walking distance to many cafes and restaurants. The beach is at the back door.



The accommodation is good, I stayed in a 4-bed dormroom. The tasks are making beds, damp dusting, vacuumming, cleaning the kitchen (mostly wiping, sweeping and mopping) and cleaning the bathroom. I learned a lot especially when it comes to making beds. Pippa taught me a lot and set a high standard when it comes to cleanliness and sanitizing things. I was welcomed and everyone is helpful when I ask questions and need help. The place may be a heritage site but it is clean and smells nice. A walking distance to the beach where I sunbathed after doing my tasks. I worked from 9:30am till 1 or 2pm.
